An Evening With Nancy Popkin, Founder of Love More, Eat Less
Join us on Thursday, June 1, 2017 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Olive Lucy, for an evening with nutritionist Nancy Popkin. Nancy, founder of Love More, Eat Less, works with clients who want to make a sustainable change in their food choices and their health while eating real food. It is not about going on a short-term diet, it is about long-term success. Most of us have habits and challenges related to our family and work situation and our lifestyle. Nancy helps her clients work through those obstacles to find the foods and eating style that best suits each individual. The results are lasting improvement in weight, energy and symptoms. And there is a side benefit, which is that most clients find improvement with their personal relationships because they feel better about themselves.
Nancy has been working with clients in the Bucks and Montgomery counties for more than 10 years. She is the Nutritionist as The Solebury Club in Buckingham, PA. She also works with private clients via phone, Skype and in person. She is a contributing blogger to the Huffington Post and has been featured in other blogs and podcasts, including Massive Momentum in Minutes.
During our evening with Nancy, she will enlighten us with her knowledge on nutrition and share with us some of her favorite recipes, featuring some of our very own Olive Lucy Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars. Following her presentation and demonstration, you will have an opportunity to taste her creations, ask questions and partake in an extra virgin olive oil tasting.
