With science-backed nutrition suggestions, this workshop will have you walking away with the best tactical things YOU can do to get your hormones in balance. The goal is to help women gain hands-on knowledge on how to best serve their bodies with food and gain their energy back that may be lacking due to hormone imbalance.
