ELEVATE YOUR PLATE® IS MORE THAN JUST A SERVICE, IT'S A WAY OF LIFE

Elevate your Plate® teaches mindfulness, utilizes a non-judgmental approach to eating and exercise, and promotes genuine long-term results. You will not only improve the way you look and feel on the outside, but you will also improve the way you look and feel on the inside.
THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ELEVATE YOUR PLATE®
A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert who has: completed a Bachelor’s Degree at minimum, completed an accredited supervised practice program, and has passed a national examination.
All RDs are nutritionists but most nutritionists are not RDs.
At Elevate your Plate®, you get the best of both worlds working with an RD who also happens to be a Certified Personal Trainer.
