The Food Thinkery: Local dietitian, diabetes educator encourages clients to ‘think’ healthy

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Courses for individuals in their 20s and 30s, a course on blood sugar and a year-long program designed for those needing a significant amount of weight loss, are also available.
“I’ve found that with people who have like-minds and like-problems, it’s really reassuring for them to learn that they are not the only ones struggling. I’ll sit down with each person for a 30-minute consultation, then guide them in the direction of which class best suits their needs.”
The name Food Thinkery was created from the Greek play “The Clouds,” said Forsberg. 
“The name of Socrates’ house where he trained the philosophers was called ‘The Thinkery.’ I believe thinking and using our God-given eyes, ears and minds can help us sort through much of the false teachings in the world,” she said. 
The Food Thinkery is the newest tenant of the RSU Innovation Center’s Incubation program. The program provides start-up companies with an environment and variety of services to help smooth the path from concept to profitability.
“I heard about the Innovation Center from a friend at church who said they had a business start-up program. I came in here one day and pitched the idea, and with the help of their staff, the idea is beginning to become a reality.”
As a former gymnast and coach of gymnastics, Forsberg understands that exercise is just as important as a healthy diet. 
She has created Beamnastics, a positive body and soul program designed for children to increase daily physical exercise. 
In the program, Forsberg teaches the balance beam complete with routines to help build core strength, improve flexibility and confidence.
Classes are held at K&Co. Dance Studio, but are also mobile and can be offered at church, daycare or after school program. She said her vision for the program is to one day expand to other cities, offering training programs and manuals to qualified instructors.
