Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You’re IT Back to Basics Nutrition Consulting!
Three questions with Lisa Bunce, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and founder of Back to Basics Nutrition Consulting.
Why did you start your business?
I’m a Registered Dietitian with over 30 years of experience helping clients meet their health and weight management goals. I started Back to Basics Nutrition Consulting to help individuals make positive health changes in their lives. You can exercise as much as you’d like but if you are not eating healthy, you will not receive the full benefit of weight loss, and vice versa. We can educate you on ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise into your lifestyle and create an individualized plan to achieve your goals for health promotion, disease prevention and weight management.
What is your best-selling product or service?
Nutrition counseling. We specialize in digestive health (Monash University FODMAP certified); behavior modification for sustainable change; and individualized plans to meet any of your health and weight management goals.
Do you use any local businesses to support your business?
Ridgefield Office Supply (aka “Squash’s”) is an excellent resource for my business needs, and since my client base is referred to by many local physician groups, I suppose I inadvertently support them as well. And of course, every small business needs a solid relationship with a financial institution, I have been a customer with Fairfield County Bank since day one and they continue to meet all my business and personal banking needs. I really appreciated the personalized service as I navigated my business through all the changes that occurred during this past pandemic year.
Have you reimagined your business?
COVID forced me to explore and expand my telehealth offerings.
