Nutrition: How Food Choices Impact How You Feel
Determine your Trigger Foods and Healthy SubstitutionsPresented by Nan Jensen & Nicole Bangerter of WholeSisters, Salt Lake City healthy food bloggers
Nan & Nicole's goal is to help BHC patients and community determine trigger foods that may worsen POTS or other symptoms. They will also provide ideas for healthy substitutions for everyday foods. Join us to learn why nutrition choices are important to you and your overall health.
All of Bateman Horne Center's education meetings are streamed live on Facebook, then later posted to our YouTube channel, making them available to all. There is no need to register – livestream or in person attendance – is always free. Click here to watch the video on our Youtube channel.
I’m Nan Jensen, wife and mother to 3 boys. As a family we love to go boating, if it’s warm and we have a free evening you will find us at the lake. We love being active and spending time together. I love cooking, which I learned by watching my grandma spend hours over the stove adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I was diagnosed with POTS in 2012, which was devastating. Going from bedridden and with minimal function to being able to enjoy life seemed impossible at one time. Then in 2015 my 13 year old son was also diagnosed with POTS. My years of trying to figure out my own health ultimately helped my son learn how to cope with his newly found diagnosis. I feel so grateful for the lessons I learned and vowed to share hope with those around me who also suffer with POTS.
I’m Nicole Bangerter, I have five fun loving kids. My favorite moments in life are the ones that have been made with my family. We love swimming, camping, dirt biking, and my favorite, boating trips at Lake Powell. My parents taught me a passion for life and the outdoors, that I hope to pass on to my children. I am always busy with my children, but wouldn’t want it any other way. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 44. Even though it’s not easy to cook healthily with a busy family, taking the time to prepare clean food has made a world of difference in my life. I’m proud of the changes that I have made for myself and love how great I feel. I hope to inspire others who want the same thing!
