This session is designed to celebrate the strong bond between women and the natural world.

Eating Healthy on a Budget

$15

with Erika Barnhill

Calendar Apr 14, 2021 at 12 pm

Wednesday, April 14, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Tuition: $15

The class will teach individuals how to eat healthy foods while living on a budget.  You will learn tips to reduce the cost of healthy meals, how to stock up on healthy foods, and healthy meals to prepare on a budget. 

About the Instructor: Erika Barnhill has a passion to share her knowledge about nutrition and good health with others. She recognizes that we live in a world where people are not experiencing the healthy vibrancy they are meant to. In fact, the opposite is true: people are often sick and over-medicated, yet still unaware how much diet and lifestyle are responsible. 

Erika says, “I worked  in a hospital setting with cardiac and pulmonary patients with many people who needed change and needed answers. A health crisis led me to learn how to take a more holistic approach to healing my own body through research, study, and prayer. I have a Bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and certification as a health and wellness coach. I’m happy to say I am healthy and well today with a busy life as a wife, mother, and health coach while  homeschooling four amazing children.. Finding balance in our busy lives is so important, and it is possible to live every day to the fullest, feeling healthy and well.
