We’re happy (and honored) to be sharing the Good Food Word right in our own community in February and March, thanks to several local businesses just as passionate about health and fitness as we are.
Local to the Salt Lake area? Be sure to check out at least one of our appearances this winter… before Baby 9 makes an appearance and we get off the road for a few months.
Liberty Heights Fresh, 1290 South 1100 East
Liberty Heights is Sugarhouse’s favorite local food store, offering “authentic full -flavored food that makes you smile, made with ingredients that your great-grandparents would recognize.” Not only do they sell the best organic produce, locally-raised meats, and specialty items, they also offer their own version of a CSA, called a “Sustainably Farmed Food” share. And as of February, all you healthy eaters will have the option of joining their new Paleo share, a weekly delivery of all the Good Food we love to eat.
Dallas, Melissa, and Erin of Whole9 will be attending their Paleo share kick-off party, on Wednesday, February 6th, from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. We’ll be giving a little “Paleo 101″ talk, signing copies of It Starts With Food, and connecting with our readers (and potential readers!) on-site. Join us, and learn more about the Liberty Heights Fresh Paleo CSA option. (This event is free of charge.)
Athleta, City Creek Center
Athleta’s focus on women’s health, fitness, and balance is perfectly expressed in their tag line, “Power to the She.” Melissa will be giving a series of free interactive discussions on nutrition, health, behavior, and change at the new Athleta store in City Creek Center. This lecture series will run every Friday for four weeks, starting on February 8th, from 8:45 – 9:45 AM. The week-by-week topics she’ll be discussing are as follows:
Friday, February 8th (week 1): Our psychological relationship with food: how to stop the crave-shame-stress cycle
Friday, February 15th (week 2): Food and hormones: a calorie isn’t a calorie, and hormones are greater than willpower
Friday, February 22nd (week 3): Food and inflammation: how your diet may be affecting your health in sneaky ways
Friday, March 1 (week 4): Making the switch: why change is so hard, and how to create habits that stick
Attendance at these events is free to the public—so bring your friends! Come to all four lectures, or just attend the ones of particular interest to you. Melissa will also have copies of her New York Times bestselling book, It Starts With Food, available for sale at these events. The Athleta store is located on the lower level of City Creek Center (50 South Main Street), near the Gap and Sephora.
Ute CrossFit, 543 East 2100 South
Ute CrossFit, home of the 2012 Affiliate Cup champions, knows a thing or two about how good nutrition fuels both health and outstanding athletic performance. They’ve teamed up with Melissa and Dallas to help us share the message of how the food you put on your plate affects how you look, feel, live, and perform. You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from the seminar – our message is for everyone, and the benefits of our program are stunning.
This full-day workshop runs from 9 AM – 4 PM on Saturday, March 2nd, and is the only SLC-area seminar we’ve got planned for 2013. To learn more about what we cover during our seminar, and to register, visit http://whole9ute.eventbrite.com. See our special workshop discounts, too – and if you register early, you’ll save $15! (This is a good idea, as space is limited, and we’re already 1/3 full.)
Whole9 in SLC
We look forward to sharing our message of nutrition and health with our local community here in Salt Lake City. We hope to meet you at one (or more!) of our winter events! Got questions? Leave them in comments.
