What do you need before our initial health and wellness consultation?
You will receive a link to complete a health questionnaire and diet diary before your visit. Make sure to complete these two forms before our visit so I can better prepare for our meeting. The information on your forms also gives me more time to find out about you, using your time more efficiently and effectively. I will set up a profile for you in Practice Better, where all communication and documents will be shared and housed.
Do you accept insurance?
Insurance companies in Utah do not currently reimburse for or cover the cost to see a nutritionist. Some insurance companies cover the cost to see a Registered Dietician, so that might be an option for you. Contact your health insurance company to ask what expenses they cover. I'd be happy to fill out a form for you if your health insurance reimburses you for your cost. Please contact me with your questions on my contact page here.
Do you accept HSA or Flex-Spending accounts for payments?
We accept HSA and Flex-spending accounts to help cover out-of-pocket health costs. Think of the time and costs associated with seeing a nutritionist as an investment in your health. Committing to diet and lifestyle changes now will save you thousands of dollars and health issues in the future.
What's the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a holistic nutritionist?
In short, a holistic nutritionist is someone trained in either a bachelor or master program to look at everybody's system to identify the root cause of symptoms and then treat using food and supplements. Using a holistic nutritionist is a healthy and natural approach to treat, heal, and prevent disease. You can find a more detailed explanation and comparison between a Registered Dietician, holistic nutritionist, and health coach in my blog, "What Is A Holistic Nutritionist."
What's the difference between a meal plan and a meal planning guide?
A meal plan will outline what you should for each meal throughout the week, and a meal planning guide will give you the power to create your program using the recipes provided. Meal plans and meal planning guides both come with a shopping list.
How is your meal plan different than what I get from my trainer or coach?
I create meal plans that are nutritionally balanced for you based on your intake form, preferences, and lifestyle. When considering your meal plan, I combine your biological information + health goals + dietary restrictions = individualized plan. Personalized meal plans are customized especially for you. Personal trainer meal plans are usually created from cookie-cutter healthy meals to improve your diet but don't include a weekly plan, shopping list, or recipes.
Can you still create a meal plan for me if I have dietary restrictions?
Whether you are celiac, have food allergies or food intolerances, I can assist you in meal planning for daily living. I enjoy educating clients on the many healthy and delicious food choices they may not be aware of when shopping in their local supermarket. I offer meal planning in all three of my holistic coaching packages, which you can view here I offer meal planning in all three of my holistic coaching packages.
What if I don't like to cook or don't know how to cook?
I work with all skill levels and preferences for cooking with my clientele. If you are not a fan of cooking, my plan will include simple recipes that require effortless cooking methods like one-pan, slow cooker, or Instant Pot recipes. Additionally, there are also prep short-cuts, such as buying pre-cut vegetables, which will make meal prep more comfortable and healthier! You will find meal prep a much easier process when you have smooth, simple, and healthy recipes when cooking. With practice and the right tools, meal prep can be a breeze. You'll be proud to show off your new skill of creating incredible, healthy meals with ease.
Do you offer nutrition and holistic workshops?
Yes, I have a variety of topics that I can speak about for a workshop of ten or more individuals.
Will you come to speak to my group at our location?
I can speak at a location of your choosing at no additional cost within a 15-mile radius of Salt Lake City. Speaking outside of the 15-mile radius is offered at my workshop pricing.
I'm not sure what type of health and nutrition workshop I want you to speak about. Will you choose based on our needs?
We can plan and decide on a topic based on the demographics and needs of your group. Whatever topic we choose, your group will benefit from a health and wellness takeaway based on the subject of your personalized holistic workshop.
Do you offer health and nutrition workshops to non-profit groups?
I offer one-hour holistic, health, and nutrition workshops for religious, school, and non-profit groups. Call me with questions to see if I'd be a good fit for your group. Please give me a call today at 801-513-3522.
