Our Food Philosophy
Inclusivity is a mainstay in everything we do, and as such, we welcome students and community members, no matter their dietary preferences, core values or where they live in the world.
We educate based on the latest research combined with the wisdom of traditional diets from around the world, and invite all of our students to determine the food philosophy that best suits their needs.
Our programs are vegan and paleo friendly, gluten-free and dairy-free, and we work with ingredients in their whole and unprocessed form.
We don’t count calories but instead aim to create recipes and meals that are delicious, health supportive and nutrient dense.
There are 7 billion different diets best suited to the 7 billion people on the planet.
We educate our students from the point of view that no teacher or practitioner will ever know what someone needs better than the person themselves.
Our job is to share information, recipes, ideas and skills that invite our community and clients to determine what makes the most sense for themselves.
