Pirates Booty (http://piratebrands.com/)

The Pirate Brands story began in 1987 in Sea Cliff, NY with our founder, Robert. Robert, a snack industry renegade and father of two, scoured the high-seas for a tasty treasure that would inspire people to live a little healthier and have fun while doing it. That's when Robert discovered the cheesy rice and corn puffs we know today as, Pirate's Booty.

Thanks to Robert and his tasty treasure, no longer do you have to eat "cheese" puffs dusted with neon orange powder with incomprehensible ingredients. When you buy Pirate Brands products, you are getting wholesome goodness without the guilt.

We've created products for the whole family that are all natural, baked AND delicious. We've eliminated fryers and trans fats from all of our products and keep the ingredients simple (no need to Google® search today). Our only additives are just good, wholesome fun.

It's been more than 20 years and we’re still continuing our journey!

Nutrition Consultation: What to Expect

No one diet works for every person. My job as a health and nutrition counselor is to help you discover the food and lifestyle choices that best support you and meet your needs. In our 30 minute consultation, we will discuss your unique situation and identify ways I can support you in reaching your wellness goals. Optimal health and wellness is achieved one healthy step at a time. As such, you will leave your consultation with one or two recommendations you can immediately put into action and thus, start down the path towards reaching your wellness goals. Concerned you'll be handed a restrictive, no-fun diet in your consultation? Rest assured I believe health and nutrition should be fun, flexible, guilt-free and full of lots of yummy, healthy food. And yes, believe it or not, healthy food can be very tasty!

So, when was the last time you got a full 30 minutes to talk about your health and receive the attention you deserve? Schedule your appointment today. I look forward to meeting with you!
