The first step to better health begins with food.
That’s where Prescribe Nutrition comes in.
Eating the right whole foods can radically change your health, but the world of nutrition can be confusing, conflicting and very often overwhelming. People need direction and want confirmation that what they’re eating is healthy.
That’s why we’ve created Prescribe Nutrition.
We take confusion out of the mix and demystify healthy eating.
Consider it a nutritionist’s stamp of approval .
If you’re like us, you’ve probably struggled with understanding nutrition and the relationship between your diet and your body. Connecting the dots can be overwhelming. Maybe you struggle with overeating, maybe you feel off after eating certain foods, or perhaps you battle with a chronic condition and can’t seem to find any relief, no matter what you try. You’re ready to start living a healthier life, but you’re not sure how.
When it comes to nutrition and health, there is a lot of conflicting information floating around. Trying to separate fact from fiction from fad can be confusing and exhuasting for anybody. The Internet is an vast resource but you can’t always trust the information you’re getting. So where do you start?
The Internet is like an infinite cookbook with the world’s worst editor!
Prescribe Nutrition is here to sort through all the unhealthy clutter and misinformation to finally give you the resources and support you need to live a healthier life.
We make nutrition simple. Our interactive online educational programs deliver healthy recipes, practical tools and direct nutritionist support.
Prescribe Nutrition’s 3-step approach will guarantee that you’ll have the knowledge, resources, and support you need to develop a healthy relationship with nutrition.
Our online nutrition courses will teach you how to listen to your body and discover what works best for you. From the basics of nutrition to managing your chronic conditions through whole foods, our nutritionists have developed comprehensive guides to put you on a path to better health.
No more sifting through pages of unhealthy options trying to search for a meal that fits your personal needs. You tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll recommend recipes based on your specific dietary restrictions. All of our recipes are marked with a nutritionist’s stamp of approval so you know you can trust them.
When you need a little more support, our nutritionists are available to provide one-on-one nutrition and wellness support via our concierge site. You’ll have on-demand access to our nutritionists to discuss your struggles in depth. Your private nutrition profile will be tracked as you move forward, a tool you can use with your other health professionals.
Prescribe Nutrition offers multiple online nutrition programs throughout the year and we’re always building to add more. We want to give you the specific tools and resources you need to live a healthy and fulfilling life!
