What is food?

Your body is a complex biochemical machine. Just like other machines, it requires fuel and maintenance, and this comes from the food you eat. Food allows physical growth. It allows the body to repair itself and fight disease.

So, yes, food nourishes us physically. But it must also nourish us emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and socially.

Too often, though, nutritional counseling starts and ends with the biochemical aspects of eating. It becomes largely mathematical, a calculus of calories and nutrients, a formula.

I take a different approach. I believe we must recognize, first and foremost, that food is a necessary part of life and culture and that an abundance and variety of food is beautiful, freeing and fulfilling.

In my work, I try to integrate all of the ways food can nourish us. I seek to understand each client’s individual needs, and to find ways that food can provide not just fuel but pleasure.
