Nutrition – A Catalyst For Change From The Inside Out
Health improvements cannot be complete without addressing nutrition. The health of your body -  tissues,

level, moods, hormone production and much more.
Learn how a healthier ‘food pyramid guide’ and the right food choices can quickly improve how you feel and
function and make you more productive. We will talk about the importance of food quality and discuss adverse
effects of unhealthy choices. We will also touch upon toxins and the practice of detoxification – a powerful tool
to recharge and ‘renew’ yourself.

Guest Speaker, Karin Dietrich, CNTC, a nutrition therapist, practices a holistic approach in ‘using foods as
medicine’ with her clients. She believes that diet, environment, and lifestyle changes in the 20th century have
affected all age groups of our society with health issues and chronic diseases that modern medicine has
difficulty treating successfully. When coaching clients, she always takes into account that we are all
biochemically unique and therefore dietary and nutritional needs are highly individual. Karin has been working
in multiple settings, from health clubs to alternative and medical clinics.

A Rock-Bottom Food Bill for Nutritious, Delicious Meals
One day, Elise Cooke opened up the newspaper and read about how “impossible” it is to eat properly on only $21
per week, which is what Food Stamps were paying at the time.  She found this odd since her family of five was
eating for about $12 per week, per person, very nutritiously.  But what really stunned her was that the story line
went on for days and never met with challenges from savvy home economists. Was it possible that most people
didn’t know how to achieve a rock-bottom nutritious food bill?  Author, Elise Cooke, takes you through steps for a
rock-bottom food bill.  

Speaker Elise Cooke founded Simpleton Solutions to be a resource to those learning how to live large on less.  
Its name reflects her contention that frugality isn’t that mentally challenging or tedious; a shift in thinking is the
most difficult step. Elise is the author of
