About This Course
Eating healthy doesn’t necessarily mean cutting out all the foods you love, or completely changing the way you eat. For you, the road to a healthier diet might be as simple as learning how to make healthier food choices and adopting some simple healthy eating habits. In this course, renowned nutrition specialist Liz Josefsberg, will help you bring your diet full circle, starting with the basics of a well-balanced diet. She will show you how to plan a week’s worth of meals. She will take you shopping at the grocery store and show you tips and tricks for buying healthy foods–even on a budget. And she will give you some short-term strategies that, if practiced, can help you eat healthy for the long term.
