Are you interested in knowing how to support and enhance health in your body using food?
Enjoying delicious, clean, whole foods is an important way to help your body maintain ideal wellness.
Most of us know that what we eat matters, but these days we face so much conflicting and confusing information, that sometimes it is hard to know how to incorporate healthy eating into the flow of our lives without feeling deprived, confused or frustrated.
It is time to make healthy eating simple and enjoyable!
In the Food as Medicine workshops we focus on how to cultivate a relationship with food that is grounded in simplicity, balance, trust, and a return to joy.
In these workshops you will be given tools and skills to help improve your health and wellbeing by learning how to supply your body with the vitamin-rich, antioxidant-dense, protein-packed, nutrient-hearty foods that make the biggest impact on your health and wellbeing. You will also learn how to avoid those foods that sabotage your health and contribute to sickness, inflammation, pain and exhaustion. Establishing healthy eating patterns is an essential skill we can all benefit from.
Ideal nutrition gives us greater energy, helps us fight illness, provides greater clarity of mind, and brings us into greater balance with the world around us. When we understand the power of nutrition, we can even help our families to achieve their optimal health potential.
This workshop is ideal for those who want to:
- Help the body recover from (or protect the body from) illness.
- Improve their metabolism.
- Achieve ideal body weight.
- Reduce pain and inflammation in the body.
- Gain more energy.
- Reduce cravings, energy swings, and fatigue.
- Most effectively and easily provide themselves and their loved ones with EXCELLENT nutritious foods and have fun in the process.
Above all else, we are going to make eating to support your health doable and fun!
Instead of approaching nutrition as if it were a chore, you can learn simple and practical skills so that healthy eating becomes a natural and normal part of your life. It doesn't have to be about deprivation, or fear, or shame, or all that you "should" or "should not" do. Instead, when you learn how to focus on what is healthy and sane for your body, you can more easily connect back to the joy of food.
Using food as medicine is about supplying the body with what it needs to generate health, wellness and vitality. And it is about reconnecting with the planet that sustains us all.
