It’s official – I am enrolled at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition!

When I say I’m going to do something I do it!

The first time I said I was going to do this was on New Year’s Eve, 2010. Fast-forward 7 months, and I am all enrolled.

My program starts September 12, 2011.

Why Go to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition?

People go to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition for many different reasons. I am going for personal growth, to create more “solutions, not problems,” and then, of course, to share it with you. I want the knowledge to share, and I want more credibility to go along with it.

Stay tuned for the adventures along the way.

  1. Sarah! I love when people get connected to the school and want to continue learning and growth. So excited that you’ll be joining this fun ‘tribe’ as we explore more ways to support healthier lives – starting with ourself and then reaching beyond to others. Blessings on your new journey. Cheers xoxo

  2. I’m enrolled for the September program as well, and couldn’t be more excited! It’s such a great community, and everyone helps one another which I LOVE. We’ll have to connect throughout the year…look forward to a great one ahead!

    1. Hi Rachel! Super excited to “meet” you here! I could not be more excited to begin. My materials are coming this next week. Are you on Twitter?

  3. I found your blog while researching IIT. I am thinking about enrolling. It is good to see your excitement. What is it that you hope to learn from the program?

    1. Hi Becky! Glad to hear you found my site. I am super excited to start. I am looking to just learn all about food and taking an integrative approach to it to better understand the optimal healthy lifestyle. I am probably not going to use the degree in the traditional way, since I will never leave my job, but I plan to use it for extra credibility when it comes to my blog, for extra credibility when I’m writing for other (food/fitness) brand blogs and to continue personal growth! How about you? What are you interested in doing with it?

  4. I am a IIN student too. You are going to love this school. They offer so much great information. I have been suffering with really bad IBS issues and have currently taken gluten out of my diet too. Your blog is great, so informative and fun. I am also part of the Ambassador program through IIN and if you would like I am pretty sure I can save you $500 off of your tuition, if you would like send me an email and I will look into it for you. I know they are having a Conference in March in LA. I just attended “Fall in to Action” in NYC It was amazing. They had such brilliant speakers. I know David Wolfe will be attending the lecture in March.

    Good Luck!!
