Nutrition Support Services

We know that where health and wellness is concerned, one size definitely does not fit all.

To meet your individual needs, we offer holistic, whole-foods based approaches to help you improve nutrition and your overall health and wellness.

A great first step is taking advantage of our FREE health consultation. Call 301-952-1111 to schedule your free session now.

Our approach to nutrition is to reveal your imbalances and show you how to correct them through food and lifestyle practices so that you can work with your body rather than against it.

  • Types of imbalances that are uncovered and corrected are:
  • Not eating from each food group on a daily basis
  • Eating toxic foods
  • Skipping meals
  • Incompatible food combining
  • Not balancing your raw food intake with your cooked food intake
  • Eating foods that are incompatible for weight loss
  • Eating foods at incompatible times of the day
  • Not having a balanced meal, generally three times a day
  • Depriving yourself of enough healthy calories/not eating enough
  • Exercising too hard or too little
  • Lifestyle stress (career, relationships, family, home, etc.)
  • Health issues such as constipation, IBS, infertility, high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid disorders, insomnia, etc.

We advocate completely natural/earth-based food so that you can lose weight through cleaning your body of toxins with a plant-based diet with some room for animal products if you need and/or want them in your diet.

Choose from these FOUR different services. You can mix-and-match services to meet your individual wellness needs:

Health and Wellness workshops

Our nutrition-based health and wellness workshops are a great first-step on your journey to wellness (or a good “reinforcement” for those who already embrace good nutrition). The beauty of these workshops is they are both power-packed AND affordable. Workshops typically run two to four hours, with free workshops January and May

See what our past attendees had to say about our workshops:

“I learned so much from this class on what I should and could be eating. I also know that I will be eating healthier and not so stressed out over my weight as I now know by eating what my body needs I will lose the weight in a healthy manner. Thank you for doing what you do to help people like myself with our quest for a healthy lifestyle.” ~ Julie H.

“This class was very helpful and inspiring, just what I needed for motivation. This really helped me get motivated again, inspired, wanting to feel better and lose weight. I got up this morning ready to begin; it was just the New Year’s boost I needed. Thanks for your professionalism, organization, managing the meeting time so well and making it simple.” ~ Becky P.

Cooking classes

Note: Group workshops & individual sessions available

Healthful cooking does not have to be time-consuming, difficult, or expensive. You just need to know the basics.

“I began offering cooking classes because so many of my clients asked: ‘Could I cook with you and see how you do it?’ Now you can.” Susan Spangler, Integrative Nutrition health coach and owner of Pilates Plus Wellness Center

In many sessions, we cook and prepare your next meal.

Healthy cooking does not have to be complicated. In these classes, Susan Spangler and Chef Terence Murphy will teach you healthy techniques, including:

  • Kitchen skills
    You’ll learn how to plan, organize, cut, and blend healthy recipes
  • Recipe development
    Learn how you can create your own recipes from the foods you and your family like.
  • Cook once, eat twice
    You’ll learn to plan dishes that need only one preparation for two meals.
  • Simplification and efficiencies
    Natural and organic foods are full of flavor. You’ll learn techniques that are easy-to-do and flavor-rich.
  • Get the most from your organic foods
    Organic foods cost more than foods raised with pesticides and antibiotics. Discover how to get every bit of use from the foods you buy – even scraps!
  • Foods that cook themselves
    You have other things to do with your time than spend it in the kitchen. Learn how to choose and make foods that take a minimum amount of time to prepare.
  • Menu development
    How to plan and shop for a week’s worth of healthy meals.

Classes are available one-on-one (or you and a friend) or in a group workshop format. Please call the studio at 301-952-1111 to learn more or schedule a class.
