Get Back on Track with our Kick the Sugar Challenge

If your health and nutrition have taken a backseat over the past couple months, let us help you get back on track and start your summer off feeling great!

Join the Challenge Monday June 1 – Sunday June 14

A virtual seminar will be held on Wednesday, May 27 so that you will have time to grocery shop and prepare for the two-week challenge. Participants must attend the seminar or view the video before the challenge begins on June 1. You will be provided with a list of acceptable and non-acceptable foods, and receive daily educational and motivational emails that will include recipes that are simple and easy to prepare. You will also have access to a private Facebook group where you have the opportunity to discuss your experience and share recipe ideas with fellow participants.
