NUTRITION PHILOSOPHY

Culturally Relevant Nutrition: There are so many delicious and nutrient-dense foods from cultures around the world. It is essential to expand the public's knowledge and awareness of different dietary patterns and food traditions.

 

Nutrition as Wellness:  How we nourish ourselves has an enormous impact on our physical and mental well-being. This includes everything from consuming balanced meals to eating mindfully and practicing self-care regularly.

Dismantling Diet Culture: The evidence continues to show that fad diets (especially ones that promote rapid weight loss) do NOT work and usually lead to worse health outcomes like inflammation, impaired metabolism, and disordered eating. It is possible to meet nutritional goals while keeping a happy relationship to food AND rejecting the diet culture BS!

Nutrition for Chronic Diseases:  Nutrition plays an important role in the prevention and management of health conditions, including gastrointestinal diseases like IBD, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer.
