We believe that all foods can fit into a nutritionally-sound meal plan that’s balanced and features a variety of foods. This is an important concept for everyone, and it means eating different foods every day versus restricting or limiting variety. Variety means incorporating different colors of fruits and vegetables into meals or choosing something different for meals each day rather than reverting to what feels comfortable or safe. Eating intuitively means listening to your body and preferences while creating a sense of allowance for all foods. This helps reduce the “feast or famine” mentality with foods such as sweets.

We believe that all foods fit into a nutritionally balanced meal plan featuring a variety of foods. Our definition of variety incorporates differing meal choices and challenges, including various flavors, textures, and colors as well as food from different cultures. To eat intuitively means intentionally listening to our bodies while creating a sense of satisfaction for all foods.

By providing nutritious and satisfying meals, as well as experiential learning in the kitchen, we help our clients gain the necessary skills to make peace with food.
