The Healthy Grub Club is for you! Play with your food with Pharmacist and Certified Health Coach, Amanda Hunter on the second Wednesday of each month from 3-4 pm EST learn the best ways to fuel your body.

We will try new recipes and new ingredients, “healthify” family favorites, practice reading food labels, set goals and help to hold each other accountable via discussion boards and breakout rooms, and see how delicious healthy can be.

Every month, we will:

  • Cover a new nutrition topic.

  • Set personal health & wellness goals and report back on last month’s goals.
