Minimize stress.

Maximize productivity.

Build a stronger team.


Incredibly enough, this can all be done through an activity that we do every single day: eat lunch.


That’s right: Lunch. The thing we likely take for granted. The thing we often power through to get back to our desks; back to “more important things.”


But what if rethinking this autopilot activity could change everything—for your employees, for your bottom line, for your business as a whole?


That’s EXACTLY what the Lunch Hour Seminars can teach you.

Stressed Woman

A few cold, hard facts:


  • 83% of Americans are stressed by at least ONE thing at work.

  • Occupational stress increases the risk of heart attack and accelerates the aging process.

  • Job stress costs the U.S. industry over $300 billion annually thanks to things like accidents, employee turnover, and insurance costs.


Study after study shows that our mentality, practice, and relationship towards food can have far-reaching and lasting implications on our quality of life and work.

With the Lunch Hour Seminars, you’ll learn life - and business -changing things like how to:


  • use stress-reducing techniques to slow down; eating mindfully and meditating with food rather than medicating.


  • have more engagement in your work; less overwhelm, more creativity.


  • strengthen your team by gathering together; it’s not what you’re eating, but how you’re eating that impacts team building


  • digest food better and digest life itself better, including our work.
