Why are you an awesome instructor?
I have always watched, listened, observed, and studied other teachers, because I have known my whole life that I would teach others, and wanted to be exceptional at it. Learning how to teach, coupled with a deep passion for the information is what I think makes me an awesome instructor.
What do you love most about the subject of your course?
For the Fundamentals of Nutrition course, I love the practicality of the information. Everything begins with good nutrition, and if we know the fundamentals, we have the tools necessary to promote and maintain health. Once you’ve learned the fundamentals you know more than 99% of the population, and are armed with powerful information. Simple but effective.
For the Elixir Craft course, I love the alchemy of combining various foods, herbs, supplements, and superfoods, into a tasty experience. By combining the components we create something that is truly greater than the sum of their parts. Meghan and I had a lot of fun putting together Healing Diets and Therapeutic Foods as this is where our passions overlap. This is the information we wish had been taught in our own nutrition training.
What is one thing you secretly wish everyone knew about you?
I can clap with one hand.
What is your desert island tool?
A knife of course. Can’t really survive well without one. And then maybe a high-powered blender, so that I could make awesome elixirs with the coconuts, fruits, and herbs on the island.
