Yes, we offer meal support!

As you know, eating meals, can be filled with worry and anxiety. We are here to help you bring back the joy of food preparation and eating and bring you one step closer to helping you create a life free from food struggles!

What does the Empowered Dining Program include?

  • Bimonthly 2-hour meal support sessions with Registered Dietitian, Alex Raymond.
    • Before the meal- enjoy a fun, educational session and/or food preparation
    • During the meal- eat dinner in a supportive environment
    • After the meal- an opportunity to share time with others who are also making recovery a priority
  • The opportunity to eat a meal and discuss meal-centered concerns with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and peers
  • A supportive, comforting recovery environment to explore food options
  • Recovery tools at each meal that will be discussed

When are the sessions?

  • Greenbelt: 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 6pm. 

During these bimonthly 2 hour meal support sessions, we focus on positivity, encouragement and empowerment surrounding your meal time. You will be provided with the support you need to continue along the path to a successful recovery and silence the eating disorder voice. Our ultimate goal is to bring the fun back into eating and build your confidence so you can feel empowered in making food and nutrition choices from day to day.

We welcome all clients. You do not have to be a part of our Empowered Eating program in order to participate in Empowered Dining. We also offer meal support at lunch time 2x/week at our Greenbelt Office. Because some Empowered Dining sessions require you to bring your own dinner, we do ask that you send a copy of your meal plan to Alex (alex@empoweredeatingblog.com) before your first session.
