Lastly, Freeman emphasizes the benefits of drinking organic green tea. Green tea contains healthful polyphenols (mostly flavenols, com- monly known as catechins) which provide some protection against degenerative diseases and oxidative stress. Sandrine Ghosh, co-founder of Eat Clean Nutrition and a Wellesley mother of three, encourages many of the same principles in her prac- tice. "When my children were young and we were living in Mill Valley, California, I decided to go back to school and study nutrition. I was influenced by the northern California diet and focus on local food." With another student from her program, she started Eat Clean Nutrition. "We see clients privately, but also do workshops and lec- tures," she says. In Wellesley, Ghosh has run a number of "elimination diets" and cleanses, but she emphasizes that her preference is to start working with clients at their status quo level. "I think elimination diets can be very overwhelming for people. My preference is to meet my clients where they currently are and assess their shopping, cooking, and eating habits—as well as learn about their daily lives and stress levels. I like to start by adding things to their diets instead of removing them. People are typically more comfortable with this approach." 194 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s p r i n g 2 0 1 7 Julie Freeman's Snack Ideas n 2 squares 85% dark chocolate with 1 Tbsp. nut butter or 2 Tbsps. nuts n 1 snack bar such as KIND or Detour Smart Bar n ½ cup Greek yogurt with ½ cup thawed, frozen fruit and 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips n ¼ cup hummus with 4 wholegrain crispbreads n 2 Tbsps. almonds and 1 cup fruit n Mini wheat pretzels with 1 Tbsp. peanut or almond butter for dipping n Mini cottage cheese with 4 baked, whole wheat crackers n 4-6 Tbsps.
