Get Directions

Eating on the run. Skipping meals. Eating out frequently. Choosing convenience foods that are quick and easy. Caffeine boosts throughout the day for energy. These are common occurrences in a busy professional’s life. Food choices can affect your energy and productivity—either negatively or positively.

In this presentation, Lisa Woodie, owner and chef at Homemade Fresh Chef Service, will discuss the importance of nutrition and making good food choices to become healthier and more productive in our personal and business lives. She will share tips that we can use daily and small changes that can make a big difference. Lisa will teach us how better nutrition can make us more energetic, focused and efficient.

We’ll learn:

What happens to our body when we skip meals

Learn why breakfast really is the most important meal of the day for our brains, our energy level and our metabolism.  We’ll also learn what we should be eating at different times of the day to optimize our productivity.

What foods to choose and what foods to avoid

Learn why whole, real foods make us feel better and more energetic than processed convenience foods.  We’ll learn how to make healthier choices when eating out, traveling and grocery shopping.

Tips to ensure that we eat healthy even when on the run

Learn shortcuts for planning so we can avoid the drive-thru window and snack machine.  We’ll learn the pitfalls of diet soda and caffeine boosts and alternatives that can boost and sustain our energy.

Tips and Recipes for Quick Weeknight Meals

Learn how a little advance preparation can streamline our weeknight meals. We’ll take home healthy, easy recipes that will keep our energy tank full of good fuel.

5:30pm SHARP will be a tour of the Ronald McDonald House with Lisa's presentation starting at 6pm.
