Mel presented The Magic of Minerals to our agency in November 2018. We learned the symptoms of the five most common mineral deficiencies and how making simple changes to our diets could help reduce or eliminate pain and inflammation as well as improve sleep. I really liked how Mel encouraged getting these minerals through food first with supplements if needed. She also gave us recipes that combined foods high in the minerals that a majority of people are lacking, which made these changes easy and delicious! Mel is so knowledgeable and well prepared, and was able to answer any questions we had. We have been so happy with Nutritional Weight & Wellness as part of our agency’s wellness program and I would highly recommend them to any company wanting to improve the health of their employees.

Lea did an excellent job. She is very thorough, knows the subject matter very well and is good at engaging with questions. It was helpful to hear her personal journey in that it makes it more real with choices we face daily. It is nice to know that change can happen at any level by making changes slowly and incorporating food that is good for you or taking away bad foods. Some of the feedback I received was that the presentation was very good and people were glad they went, and it was helpful learning how much sugar is in food, like popcorn.

ONLY glowing reports from Lea’s presentation today! She is really good – knows her stuff and is able to get back on track when asked questions in the middle of her presentation. She arrived early, was prepared, and commented to the group on how nice it was to see some familiar, as well as new, faces. Our staff genuinely likes and enjoys her.

Teresa Wagner spoke to our group of seniors about forming healthy habits in November 2017 and everyone was very impressed with her knowledge and passion for helping others to a healthier life! Teresa catered her presentation to meet the needs of our group and made a topic that some may find confusing and overwhelming easy to understand. Teresa was a very engaging presenter and was wonderful to work with—she showed up early, kept her presentation within our time limits and even kept time for questions at the end. We certainly hope to have her back in the future!

Brenna from Nutritional Weight & Wellness provided a workshop to employees called Stress, Food & You. She was comfortable with the material and presented it an easy-to-understand manner. Participants learned why eating protein and healthy fats are key to stress management, and how sugar highs and lows contribute to stress and anxiety. The material challenged the old method of counting calories as a weight management tool; we learned that by eating whole foods and plenty of good fats and proteins, and by leaving out empty carbs and sugars, weight will manage itself.
— Jennifer Moreen | City of Plymouth
Kara spoke to our group about changing the fast food habit. She offered simple changes that can make snacks or lunches more satisfying and less expensive. The idea that eating better can clear our minds of brain fog is exciting to me.

Nutritional Weight & Wellness provided a workplace wellness nutritional seminar series for employees at Tokyo Electron – FSI. Participants found this course to be very informational and the presenters, Lynn and Britni, to be very knowledgeable and engaging. The plan highlights good fats and minimizing sugar to increase metabolism, which is a realistic and “doable” formula to healthfully eating for a lifetime. We very much enjoyed the series and would like to include additional series in the future.

UCare employees have been receiving services from Nutritional Weight & Wellness staff since 2014. The program has rapidly grown thanks to the many successes experienced by program participants.

My experience with Nutritional Weight & Wellness has been so positive. I have learned to eat correctly and enjoy it. I have lost 20 pounds* and have kept it off for 8 months. My cholesterol is down over 50 points. I can’t say enough good about working with these wonderful and helpful people.

This summer, Beehive launched our Summer of Healthy Eating initiative to help our team ingrain healthy eating practices into their daily lives. In addition to an office CSA membership, free healthy snacks and recipe sharing, we brought in Brenna Thompson to educate our team on what food to eat to support energy—and which foods/beverages to avoid. This information was eye-opening but Brenna’s suggestions were simple and practical. Since her presentation, our team has been drinking more water, watching the sugar content in our food more closely and eating healthier breakfasts. Several employees are actively working to break their Diet Coke habit as well.

Brenna Thompson, guest speaker from Nutrition Weight & Wellness, spoke to our Senior Issues Network Group on the topic “Change Your Nutrition to Reduce Aches and Pains.” We had a wonderful turnout for this topic and the audience found the information to be informative and inspiring. In working with seniors we come across many people who suffer from chronic aches and pains. This presentation gave us some information to pass along to those we work with to hopefully improve their quality of life.

We’ve had Nutritional Weight & Wellness conduct our onsite wellness seminars and attend our annual wellness fair for almost five years now. We’ve always been very impressed with their seminar content, knowledgeable speakers and responsiveness and flexibility when scheduling our onsite wellness events. We give them 5 stars!

Nutritional Weight & Wellness developed an incredible package of workshops serving our community members and participants from our programs which serve individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other learning challenges. Nutritional education can have such a dramatic impact on the quality of life for our clients, and we found that the presenter was well equipped to provide a motivating presentation of relevant material. She was able to meet our participants on their level when it comes to the healthy eating challenges that often coincide with ASD and learning disabilities.

Nutritional Weight & Wellness has been providing counseling services to the Metropolitan Airports Commission since 2008. The advice I received from NWW literally changed my life! I am sleeping better, am no longer tired at the end of my work day and have absolutely NO cravings. Other comments I have heard from employees:

The City of Eden Prairie started our journey with Nutritional Weight & Wellness by hosting a series of lunch and learns. Due to the numerous requests from employees to continue to offer the sessions we decided to have a nutritionist on site twice a month. Employees were able to have one-on-one sessions and learn what nutritional needs were appropriate for their body type, age, lifestyle, medical needs...Employees loved the sessions and the individual attention to their unique needs.
—Lori Kerns | City of Eden Prairie
The City of Mendota Heights held its first ever nutrition class through Nutritional Weight & Wellness for our employees. Lea presented the Foods for Great Energy class. The class was a HUGE SUCCESS and Lea was AWESOME! Lea even stayed after class to answer additional questions. Employees were still talking about it the morning after. One employee even stopped another employee (who did not attend the class) from eating Cheetos. Another employee vowed to give up her Pepsi and chocolate snack in the afternoon after learning the snack equaled 16 tsp. of sugar. The Foods for Great Energy class was a great start to a wellness program and bring employees back to the basics of good nutrition.
I only heard one concern and that was the class wasn’t long enough, they wanted to hear more!
—Tamara Schutta, PHR | City of Mendota Heights
Cassie Weness, LD, RD, conducted a breakout session during Trusight's 2011 Annual Benefits Conference. Due to the very positive remarks received, we invited Cassie to present a keynote lunch presentation during the recent 2012 conference. Cassie presented an informative, enlightening and entertaining custom presentation on "Stress-Busting Foods." She used examples and products that resonated with all attendees. Evaluations included comments such as:
—Kathryn Helmke, SPHR | Trusight
“Last year at this time…I didn’t feel very well. Thanks to the Health and Wellness Programs here at Lindquist & Vennum, I found the help that I needed. After attending one of the classes, Food and Mood, I had a consultation with Cassie and we decided that I had a problem with gluten. Since September of 2010 I have lost 39 pounds* and lots of inches. I now eat gluten free, I have so much more energy and I sleep like it’s heaven.”
“The seminar speakers were very knowledgeable and helped me to understand just how much sugar is in everything and how that affects my body, my mood, and my health. Having that visual really helped me.”
“The private consultation gave me new and fresh insight into healthy recipes and snacks. I became aware of vitamins and/minerals plan that is designed for my specific needs.”
“After hearing Cassie speak on good fats and balanced nutrition, I decided to give the Nutritional Weight and Wellness way a try. I lost 25 pounds in 6 months*, have more energy, and am sleeping better. Getting rid of excess sugar and eating the right amount of good fats makes me feel satisfied, and I no longer have any cravings. This is definitely the way I will eat from now on!”

The Balanced Food for Balanced Moods class was highly engaging with opportunities to ask questions. The presenter was highly knowledgeable with a wealth of resources readily accessible. Participants stayed after the session and were enthusiastic. The class was practical and straightforward with specific strategies to begin to change health habits. Highly recommended.
