Cooking is an essential component for eating healthy.  Any meal can be quick, healthy and simple, yet taste good.  Ruth’s “Look Mom. I Can Cook!” cooking show is an example of how to make quick and easy meals taste delicious and be healthy.


Healthy choices begin in the grocery store.  Tours include: identifying healthy foods and foods for special needs, reading labels, avoiding impulse buying and tips for saving money.


Ruth speaks on a variety of eating healthy and weight loss subjects for groups.  Whether it’s a single class or a workshop, participants will be inspired to change their habits and start living a healthy lifestyle.


Employee worksite programs are a great way for companies to save money.  Studies show that for every dollar spent on prevention, a company can save $2-$5 on employee health and wellness.  Ruth conducts nutrition seminars aimed at wellness, weight loss or disease management to large and small companies.  Teaching cooking classes and supermarket tours can be an education component to any wellness program.
