Plan It Healthier is in the business of wellness for people and the planet. We believe in the body’s natural ability to be healthy. Through whole foods nutrition, natural remedies and lifestyle adjustments, we work collaboratively to develop the best plan for a healthier you, while supporting the health of the local community and the planet.
Natural Health and Nutrition Consultant Deirdre Holmes has completed two professional training programs in Holistic Health: Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in 2006 and the Global College of Natural Medicine in 2008. She also holds a master’s degree in Ecological Urban and Regional Planning from UCLA. She is a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She is also an IIN Ambassador, preparing prospective students for successful training as Health Coaches.
She has followed diets from omnivore to vegan (macrobiotic) and has settled into a whole foods (mostly local) vegetarian lifestyle. She creates easy meatless recipes for the international Meatless Monday campaign, and for The Kids Cook Monday initiative, and offers cooking classes locally. For personal, community and ecological health reasons, she encourages eating local foods, and offers a locally sourced, homemade soup on the Your Farmstand market every week.
Inspired by the work of the Slow Money Alliance, Plan It Healthier is in the process of transitioning to a pay-what-you-wish/barter compensation structure. We welcome any thoughts, suggestions, and/or experience you may have regarding this business model. As part of the new structure, we have created “The Veggie Fund” from which we grant seed monies for projects focused on growing, eating, cooking, promoting and sharing vegetables. Last year, in partnership with Cabot Cooperative Creamery, we sponsored a middle school cooking team to compete in the Vermont Junior Iron Chef competition.
