Getting to Healthy & Happy Together

This is for couples and families.

Does any of this sound familiar?

 

  • We want to use food and nutrition to improve or protect our health and energy, but there’s so many conflicting messages about what to eat. What’s the right approach?
  • Mealtime has been a struggle lately, especially when we lack a clear plan of attack.
  • We want to eat better, but also need to take the rest of the family’s needs and preferences into account.
  • Each of us tried to make healthy changes in the past, but found we didn’t know what we were doing, or felt unsupported, and quit.

 

What if…

  • You could adopt a healthier lifestyle together. One that everyone in the house likes.
  • We looked forward to sitting down together for a meal. Planning, shopping, and cooking a meal is easier than ever, and worth the effort.
  • Every day, you had the support of your partner in making the healthy habits you’ve picked stick.

All of that is possible with Individual Nutrition Counselling

Meet Your Dietitian

I understand how it feels to search for the “right” thing to eat, only to feel dissatisfied, frustrated, or guilty. Like you, I’m fed up with the culture of ever-changing health fads and dieting advice co-existing with so many industrial food products in our modern eating environment.

It’s challenging to navigate, and to know who or what to trust. But rest assured: I’ve guided hundreds of people before you. See a sample story below.

Nicole Pulvermacher, Registered Dietitian in Saskatchewan since 2008, specializing in healthy behaviour change.

“I am really enjoying our meal plan (and so is my husband!). The suppers are easy to prepare and all are very delicious with such great variety. It has made our grocery shopping and meal preparation so much easier and has also provided us with many new menu ideas. Your lunch and snack suggestions are also a great help. Thanks for teaching me how to gain weight nutritiously!” Mary B.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my health insurance cover this?
Many people have coverage for Registered Dietitian services through their extended health benefits, but every plan is different. So please check with your plan administrator’s for the details of your coverage.

You may find Registered Dietitians listed with Chiropractors and Massage Therapists as one of types of HEALTH PRACTIONERS or Providers covered by your plan. There are ordinarily limits to this coverage, such as a total amount per year and/or a maximum amount per visit. To avoid surprizes, we recommend understanding those limits ahead of time.

Nutrition Counselling with us may also be an eligible expense for any FLEXIBLE health or wellness spending accounts you may have though your workplace. Others have used workplace-sponsored personal development funds, as well.

If you have any kind of coverage, let us know. While we won’t direct bill your plan, we will do our best to ensure you get all the services you’re covered for, and provide detailed reciepts in support of your claims.

And if your coverage doesn’t reimburse you for 100% of the cost of your nutrition counselling, Canada Revenue Agency recognizes any out-of-pocket costs as eligible medical expenses for income tax deduction purposes. Save your receipts!

Are there payment plans available?
Yes. If you want to work with Eatwell for more than a month, but would rather pay in monthly installments rather than all at once, let us know. We’ll set up a monthly payment for the length of your plan.
Where do we meet?
Short answer: In person in Regina or online.

After selecting a day and time for your first visit, you’ll be invited to meet in person with Nicole at her home office. It’s in north-west Regina, and that address is shared in your confirmation email.

If you live outside Regina, or would find it more convenient not to drive to your followup appointments, we also have the option of using a secure video chat platform. No downloads needed.

And with the higher-level packages, available bonuses allow you to take your appointments to a location of your choice within Regina. So we can meet at your home, office, or where you ordinarily do your grocery shopping.

When are appointments available? Can I book evenings and weekends?
In order to accomodate a variety of schedules, nutrition counselling appointments are available during the regular workweek, plus selected evenings. During weekends, we recharge and do meal prep so we’re ready to serve you better during the week. An online calendar shows availability, or you can email to suggest a few times that work for you.
Should I bring anything?
Intake forms and payment are typically handled ahead of your first visit, all online or by phone. So you really don’t need to bring anything other than a willingness to work together. Some clients will bring printouts of their food & activity journals, which is always welcome. If you’d like to take notes, we’ll provide paper and pens.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes.

Boisterous kids are best left with someone who can give their full attention to childcare. And there’s no waiting room available for hangers-on, so please be thoughtful about who comes with you.

But a supportive person, like your spouse, parent, or adult child, is always welcome to listen in and contribute to the discussion – at your invitation.

JUST PLEASE GIVE NICOLE A HEADS UP FIRST.

Have a well-behaved child or driver you just have to bring along? While it’s not ideal, they’re also welcome. They’ll have to be in the room with us, and find ways to amuse themselves quietly for an hour or so.

What if I've finished my package, but still need support?
No problem. For clients who have worked with us within the last 6 months, extra followup appointments can be booked as needed. You might ask for just one or two more visits to adress a particular issue, or decide to commit to a regular monthly appointment for further growth and accountability beyond the initial package.
