It is easy for us all to make excuses or hide behind unanswered questions to avoid making the lifestyle changes which would truly improve our health, our relationship with the world around us, and our bottom line. A revolutionary approach is necessary to give us all the concrete strategies and resources necessary to reach real success with our food dollars.
For Lantern Financial Founder and President, Lisa J.B. Peterson, healthy eating was never a priority, but she started to think more about it upon the arrival of her daughter Alice in May 2009. Lisa is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ and started Lantern Financial to help young professionals and families set financial goals and work toward achieving them. Obviously she had always been very conscientious of her budget when she trekked out to do the grocery shopping, but felt that eating healthy and sustainably required visiting “trendy”, upscale markets and that simply did not work with her budget.
She began to wonder… She knew there must be a way to feed her family fresh, healthy, sustainable foods but not break her piggy bank to do it. She was hearing the same concerns from the young families she was counseling. Everybody wanted to be healthy, but they either could not fit into their budget, or chose to make extreme sacrifices to do so. That’s where her research started.
Lisa connected with Annie Carlson , a sustainable farmer, mother of three, and Executive Director of FARRMS. Annie was able to provide amazing insight into making earth-friendly, tummy-friendly choices about food. Lisa incorporated her knowledge of financial planning and living in an urban area…
And Voilà! A webinar was born!
“Lettuce Save You Some Cabbage- Preserving the World, Your Tummy, and Your Wallet” will answer all of the questions you have about eating healthy on a budget (Where can I buy local, sustainable food? What is important to buy organic, anyway? Where do I even start at the farmer’s market?). You will be able to ask your specific questions before “Lettuce Save You Some Cabbage” goes live. The $29 registration fee includes live participation and unlimited views of the recorded material.
The webinar goes like July 19th, 2012 at 1:00pm EST. You can register at http://www.lantern-financial.com/webinar .
