Style of Presentation
Rosalie often sets the stage for a serious, dramatic yet entertaining lecture – either keynote address or seminar by opening with her short song, “I Love My Chocolate,” immediately finding common ground with her audiences who applaud enthusiastically. Then, Rosalie delves into a serious quote by Hippocrates about food being our medicine, taking her attendees on a trip through our North American world of mindless eating habits, and showing them how we often allow food manufacturers to make important decisions about our nutritional health. She presents research, long neglected, about the brain and its needs for nutrients.
A short YouTube Video clip is shown about the impact of healthy foods on behavior and learning at a school that experienced dramatic, positive results for their students once they changed food choices at school.
Participants learn many skills in a short time about how to stock their pantries with upgraded products and how to create a balanced meal for both mind and body. They also discover the healthy snacks that are filling and enjoyable. People often get stuck in their eating habits. Rosalie’s passion and easy-to-follow steps toward vitality help them get ‘unstuck’! Personal stories, along with solid nutritional advice and knowledge give her audiences the encouragement they need to get started on their own, personal road to well-being.
