Nutrition on the Run seminar: Mason Jar Salads

Last night we hosted an event called ‘Nutrition on the Run: Mason jar salads’. In just an hour, we demonstrated how to prepare and assemble 4 beautiful and healthy salads that will last in the fridge for up to a week! It was great to spend some time with our clients and friends, sharing new tips and information and also helping them connect and support each other.

Please join us for our next events posted on the calender! 201-636-2143

Why is cooking important for doctors?

Teaching students to cook now makes them better doctors later (click here to read more)

LESS THAN 1/3 THIRD OF U.S. MEDICAL SCHOOLS ACTUALLY PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH THE MINIMUM RECOMMENDED 25 HOURS OF NUTRITION INSTRUCTION!!!!!

A report published by the American Academy of Family Physicians announced that a grant was awarded to West Virginia University to teach third year medical students about nutrition, culinary science and exercise. Noting that chronic disease practice guidelines routinely call for lifestyle change and that FEWER THAN ONE IN FOUR PHYSICIANS FEEL ADEQUATELY TRAINED TO COUNSEL PATIENTS about making such changes, a new program, called Medical Curriculum in Health, Exercise, and Food Science, has been introduced in West Virginia to teach medical students about healthy eating.
Doctors are already under a time crunch. In the 5-15 minutes they spend with you in the exam room there is a lot to cover. Even with this training for future physicians it will be hard to get the information, motivation and counseling you need.


That is why Weight Wellness Center, LLC was created. To educate you NOW about all things food and nutrition, one on one, with the culinary element available in our teaching kitchen.
We are ahead of the curve … work with us to meet your weight wellness goals!
