Free Session Focuses on Food As Medicine, at Pellegrino Healing Center, in Hyde Park

Pellegrino Healing Center

On March 30, from 5 to 6 p.m., Pellegrino Healing Center in Hyde Park, will host a free community session, Food Changes Everything, focused on food as medicine, weight loss and mindset changes. 
The event will feature a meet and greet with certified health and lifestyle coach Debbie Justs, who works with clients to help them lose weight through a diet of “real food.” She will give a presentation on eating clean to feel better. She will also be selling and signing her book, Stupid Easy: Clean Eating Recipes 101. There will be complimentary homemade, healthy granola available.

The event will close with a 10-minute meditation in Pellegrino Healing Center’s Himalayan salt cave, guided by Michelle Eggink, a meditation and mindfulness teacher and certified nutritional therapy practitioner. Eggink, who has been with Pellegrino Healing Center since its creation, says that since witnessing stress levels and mental health issues spike during the pandemic, she has dedicated her spare time to meditation and breathwork education. Her sessions are designed to “hold nurturing space for those looking to break down mental barriers and integrate a practice of presence for happier, healthier living.”

Location: Pellegrino Healing Center Salt Cave, 4307 Albany Post Rd., Hyde Park, NY. For more info, call 845.233.5672 or visit
