Owner of Healthy Attraction LLC, the nutritional consultation office, health food store and instructional kitchen located at 32 Bullet Hill Road, Suite 202 in Southbury since June of 2011, Ellis shows her clients how they can prepare healthy foods in short periods of time. “A typical 70 minute session includes food preparation instruction and educating my clients on understanding how food can make them healthier, plus create recipes and menus for their specific health needs and goals.”
