Nutrition Counseling

What to expect

In one-on-one nutritional counseling visits, Anisa will help you reach your health goals by evaluating your diet and health history and providing nutrition solutions with a food-first approach. For thoroughness, Anisa will spend between 60-90 minutes in your first visit. Best outcomes occur when you work together in regular weekly or bi-weekly visits to begin with. You can expect to have individualized meal recommendations based on your individual nutritional needs. Among other concepts, nutrition education may be focused on decreasing overall inflammation, eating whole foods, and balancing blood sugar.  

Speaking of blood sugar, consider joining one of Anisa's 21-Day Sugar Detox groups or one-on-one coaching to work specifically on eliminating your sugar cravings.

Kitchen Coaching

Learn to cook in the comfort of your own home

Are you hesitant to get in the kitchen? Do you resort to mainly frozen or prepared foods because you lack the necessary preparation skills needed to make a decent meal? Not to worry! Anisa can come to your home and teach you the basic food prep skills and techniques needed to make easy, quality meals that you can't wait to eat! So your individualized dietary needs can best be met, all clients are required to first undergo an in-office nutrition assessment prior to scheduling a pantry cleanup and 90-minute cooking demonstration. 

Anisa is also available to teach healthy cooking classes to groups, school classes, or workplaces. Please email for details!

Grocery Store Tours

One of the first steps to making changes in the kitchen is choosing the right foods at the grocery store. That's why Anisa provides the option to accompany you on a personal grocery store tour. A tour is given, if desired, some time after the first office visit so it can be individualized to each patient. In this tour, Anisa will teach you how to read nutrition labels, how to avoid being fooled by packaging, how to navigate the store, and strategies to choose the best foods for you. Each tour is 45 minutes long. Together, the location is decided. You can even bring your weekly shopping list and hit two birds with one stone! A 45-minute tour is $80, paid before the tour begins.
