Culinary Nutrition is the practice of combining good health with good food. It celebrates the fundamental role that food plays in our lives and seeks to maximize the relationship between good health and eating pleasure.
Everyday we make innumerable choices about food and whether we realize it or not, the impact of these choices is broad-reaching. What we eat intrinsically affects our bodies, moods, energy, and the environment. It is my profound belief that good food really is our best medicine.
I am committed to the practical art of choosing, preparing, and eating beautiful wholesome meals with health-enhancing, social, and earth-sustaining qualities. My goal in this field is to share naturopathic nutritional information with practical cooking tools (such as ingredient lists, cooking techniques, shopping strategies, and delicious recipes) which will inspire people to:
- Learn how our daily lifestyle and food choices can impact our health
- Get familiar and creative with whole foods (using food as medicine)
- Come to see meals as opportunities, recognizing that we have at least three times a day to make positive, sustainable change for ourselves, our families, our communities, and the earth.
Clinical Nutrition is one of the modalities that I am most excited about, so in addition to my naturopathic medicine practice, I have spent many years teaching whole foods cooking classes, private nutritional counselling, and lead workshops here in Vancouver and at the Hollyhock retreat centre on Cortes Island.
