Eating mindfully is about maintaining in-the-moment awareness of what you ingest. It’s about observing (not judging) the food and drink you choose to consume while noticing how the food makes you feel. Mindful eating allows us to fully engage in the signals that the body sends to the brain about taste and satiety.
Mindful Nutrition Counselling helps people discover intolerances, understand emotional eating and manage weight.

- meal planning
- likes and aversions
- emotional eating
Gluten Free Cooking Lessons
While many aspects of gluten free cooking come down to label reading there are parts that require a bit of science.
Cooking lessons can be one-on-one or in small groups. All sessions will be targeted to your taste preferences. In some cases additional individuals (local chefs) may be brought in to aid the session.
