Event description

Description

We are social creatures. We need connection. Gathering together as one over shared meals and stories can bring lots of laughter and happiness, and this is why we are bringing you the event called WE nourish with Jenna Lessner of Simply Nurtured. With appetizers and dessert, we can gather together shortly after the holidays, share stories, and grow together as a community.

As we nourish our bodies and enjoy each other's company, Jenna will share parts of her journey with food and teach us how we can combat unrealistic new year's resolutions with SMART goals. Jenna is an Emotional Eating Coach, and her journey over the past five years from being nearly 300 pounds to present day is incredible (to say the least). She has a strong passion to help everyone she encounters to become their best selves, and we are excited to have her as part of this community.

About Jenna:

"A born-and-raised farm girl with nothing more than a passion and a dream to help others find freedom from food, as an Emotional Eating Coach.

Using food as comfort has been my fallback my entire life and I have struggled with obesity because of an unhealthy relationship with food. When I graduated university with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2010, my weight had climbed to 295 pounds. The day I stepped on the scale and saw that number staring back at me was a turning point in my life. It was at that moment that I vowed I would never reach 300 pounds. With deprivation and binge eating being the vicious cycle of my life, I still struggled with my weight three-years later. In 2013, I developed the tools to help me get out of my vicious cycle and finally gain my health back. For one, after following an elimination diet, I realized I have a gluten intolerance and after finally cutting grains out of my diet and following a Paleo and ketogenic approach the rest of the weight came off easily. I also broke-up with bingeing. I no longer turned to food for comfort and found other healthy modalities that helped me deal with my severe depression.

In the end, my weight loss sparked my two passions: nutrition and running. I wanted to learn more about nutrition and gaining my health back was just the beginning. Enter the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I am a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant and a Precision Nutrition Level One Coach. Through my formal education and experience, I believe nutrient-dense foods are the key to optimal health. Nurturing the body starts with whole food. But I also believe it’s not about the food. How we view food and our relationships towards food is the bigger issue. The harder issue, the issue that people shy away. Keeping the weight off for 5 years isn’t because nutrition and running became my passions, but because I learned to have a healthy relationship with food. I broke-up with bingeing."

What's Included:

Light appetizers and dessert, non-alcoholic beverages (water, tea, coffee), ample time to connect with other like-minded women, and meaningful takeways from our speaker to prepare you for 2019.
