Eating well is essential to our health and to our healing. Food has the power to help uplift our moods, replenish our energy, prevent disease, and provide our body with everything it needs to live a long and happy life. Today’s modern SAD diet (Standard American Diet) has left so many of us feeling confused, frustrated, inflamed, malnourished, and sick. Learning how to nourish ourselves properly through food and lifestyle changes can feel very challenging. Fortunately, Pellegrino Healing Center has two wonderful nutrition practitioners who offer their own unique programming and expertise to help guide and support your unique body with the right nutrients and healthy habits.
