Do you ever look into your kitchen pantry, see a bunch of items youíre not inspired by, wonder how long theyíve been there, take a deep breath, turn around and order take-out? Weíve all had that experience. What could help with these kitchen doldrums? Empower to the rescue! This month, Empower nutritionists are offering a promotion designed to spiff up your pantry and inspire you and meet your wellness needs. In March schedule an Empower Pantry Makeover Service with one of our dietitians and each family member who participates in the makeover session will receive a complimentary three-day food diary analysis.
The great thing about the food diary analysis is that the dietitian will get a very clear picture of what your family likes to eat, the quality of what you are eating and will make suggestions on how to improve your familyís diet based on your specific preferences. Keeping a food diary is easy, all you have to do is record what you eat and at what time you eat it each day of the three-day period. The benefit of recording your food intake for three days is that this information gives the dietitian an overview of your eating habits. Do you eat breakfast? Or do you wait until lunch to get your first meal? These questions and others may seem irrelevant but from a nutritional perspective they make a lot of sense and give the dietitian insight into your likes and dislikes.
In the pantry makeover the dietitians will take a look at what items you have on hand, look at the ingredients, determine what is helpful to your wellness goals and what is not and then use your dietary preferences to suggest specific products that are better suited to your needs. Once you get rid of unhealthful products and replace them with better options your pantry will seem a lot more attractive to you and in turn inspire you to prepare more meals at home with nutritional confidence. Take advantage of our March special and Empower your family to make better eating an easy choice.
