What ?

THE WAY TO YOUR HEALTH, LLC

What we truly do:

We share the knowledge. We describe science-based conclusions on how plant-based nutrition improves health, and show you where to get your own information.

We share the skills. We can show you how to make the transition to the WFPB lifestyle. We show you what to buy and what not to buy, show you WFPB cooking techniques, offer menu suggestions for different kinds of foods and cuisines, and give guidance, support, and help along the way.

What we don’t do:

The Way To Your Health does not treat or diagnose any disease, or offer professional counselling on nutrition, or offer any other professional healthcare service. You should discuss changes in nutrition with your doctor.

Do you need The Way To Your Health?

You may not. People can get all the information they need by themselves. But if you’d like supportive guidance and information we offer programs to get you started faster, easier, and effectively. Starting can be the hardest part. Let us help

The Programs

Different people want or need different things. So we give you a menu with choices. Pick whichever appeal to you. Each unit is customized to your interests, needs and desires. Programs come in three types, the presentations, practical training, and ongoing support.

The Presentations

 

Let’s Get Acquainted

Cost: Free

This may be all new to you, Why spend money for something that sounds awful? This unit gives you a free hour to get the facts for an informed decision.

Anywhere else in life, when you see a free offer, don’t take it because it is a trap. Not here. Don’t get me wrong. I would like people to buy my services. But even more important is helping people to find out about WFPB and learn to integrate it into their lives. If you would like my help I do have guidance and support to offer for a fair price, as shown in the accompanying units. But in this unit I just want you to learn what the facts are.

I’m willing to invest an hour free—with truly no obligation—to explain WFPB to you.

Isn’t your health worth an hour?

The Supermarket Visit

Cost: Private (1-3 people) $60/hr.; Group (4-10) $15/person/hr.

This unit is all about finding WFPB ingredients and also finding WFPB prepared foods, learning to distinguish condiments from foods, learning to read labels to distinguish foods from manufactured food-like products, and importantly, too, learning to relax, enjoy shopping, and not seek plant perfection while doing all this. Many WFPB recipes call for ingredients that may be new to you such as quinoa, sucanat, flax seed, and chili paste. This units shows you where they are and what they are for.

Ongoing Support

Electronic Contact

Changing to a whole new way of eating, or just adding new WFPB foods, can bring questions and doubts. We offer ways to connect when you need to. Electronically we can talk, by voice on the telephone, we can write through texting or email, and we can talk and see each other via various programs for smartphone or computer (Hangouts, TeamBuilder or Skype). We offer these services free for the occasional need, and for $10 per session for twice weekly electronic meetings. And we will help you to use any of these apps if they are unfamiliar.
