Hello. I am Sue Petersen, the owner of Health Simple Nutrition and a Clinical Nutritionist. I am also a mother, simpler, runner, knitter and weaver. I love Whole Foods and the power they possess to heal the body.

Tell us about your offering at The Zeal Center:

I am honored to come to The Zeal Center to teach one of my favorite topics which is fermentation.

How did you get started?

I got started when I was 45 years old. I became ill with the standard American diet and found no answers with our current medical approach for why I was sick. I searched for answers and decided to take my health care into my own hands. I went back to school and received a Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition and have never looked back.


What do you love about what you do?

I love helping people with their health care journey by offering knowledge, inspiration and guidance. I also love it when people get the light bulb look on their faces when I tell them a nutritional fact that finally makes sense.

What’s your funniest story from your job?

The funniest story from my job is when one of my ferments exploded in my kitchen. Initially, my first thought was never to ferment again. LOL, I’m still fermenting but I am so much smarter and safer now.


What do you offer beyond this amazing class at The Zeal Center?

I offer Individualized Therapeutic Nutrition Plans which are designed for each individual’s health issues. In addition, I offer 28-day Healthy Eating Plans, Hormone Reset, Auto-immune and Elimination plans which give a person an empowered road map to improve their long term health.

Where can we find you online or in person?

You can find me online at or you can find me in person @ Academy Square, 12 N. Park St., Seneca Falls,NY
