The Nutritional Cooking experience will empower you to take control of your health and nutrition by learning to cook whole foods in simple, creative ways.  We will focus on fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and even desserts.  Throughout the experience, you will discover diverse meal plans that address specific nutritional goals or dietary restrictions.

This kind of life change takes effort, but it can be done in a way that fits your schedule and budget with enough flexibility to handle the “curveballs” of real life. Like most adventures, it begins with a plan. We will map out a personalized and practical menu plan that matches your schedule and nutrition needs. It will stretch your skills and your palate to produce the variety and flexibility necessary for sustained change.

Fruits and Vegetables
The plan will start with making peace with fruits and vegetables. There is just no way around it. While a plant-focused diet is inescapable, the good news is it can be delicious. Seriously. We can do this. Soups, salads, sides, and salsas will give us plenty of flavor and variety.

Lean Proteins
We will identify either lean animal protein or a vegetarian approach to keeping our protein levels appropriate for our goals. This really is about techniques used to keep meat moist and flavorful, learning healthy and delicious sauces, and diving into seafood. Vegetable proteins and fiber will be a focus for most clients, vegetarian or not. Rice and beans, lentils, and quinoa are staples for a reason. You will learn to prepare them simply and quickly, with plenty of flavor and nutrients.

Desserts
Yes, we will deal with dessert. It won’t be easy, but we will satisfy your sweet tooth without heavily processed or artificial sweeteners. It takes an open mind and a little bit of compromise, but change is why we are here.

Dietary Restrictions
Food allergies and intolerances do not mean you must give up on great food. In addition to general nutrition and vegetarian options, we can plan sessions that address specific dietary restrictions including: gluten free, dairy free, vegan, diabetic, anti-inflammatory, paleo, low sodium, and high protein/weight gain plans.

The Nutritional Cooking experience provides highly practical, realistic lessons but should not take the place of a doctor or nutritionist’s expertise.
