If you’ve had a diagnosis of poor health, you may want to eat more wholesome, nutritious meals to improve your strength and energy and to promote healing. While there’s still much to be learned about the link between food and health, there is also a lot we already know. Some illnesses, for example, are caused in part by what we eat and how we prepare our food, and there are certain dietary approaches that may encourage healing.
If you’re thinking about adopting a healthier way of eating as part of a treatment plan, lessons with a trained health-supportive chef can help you meet your goals and succeed at integrating lasting change. It is possible for the meals you consume to support your well being and give back some of the freedom, in terms of what you can eat, that illness took away. Even the most restrictive healing diet should be able to bring pleasure.
Similarly, if you’re a physician and you’re considering engaging support to help your patients incorporate specific dietary goals, you’ll want to work with someone who has real-world experience cooking for and with people who have to change the way they eat, with improved health as the goal.
I have spent more than 25 years cooking for both adults and children who have cancer, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, or multiple food sensitivities, as well as those who are post-surgery or nearing the end of life. I have also designed meals around the strictest dietary standards: vegan, vegetarian, macrobiotic, high-fat, low-fat, nut-free, dairy-free, kosher, Weston Price, low carbohydrate, and no refined sugar.
Please contact me to discuss how we might work together to help you achieve your goals or, if you’re a physician or nutritionist, to help your patients succeed in making the changes you suggest.
