Satisfy with all our Senses
High Prana, High Vibe
As a Certified Holistic Chef, Nutrition Consultant, and Yoga Teacher, I use food and ritual as nourishing, pleasurable medicine for releasing stagnations of the body, mind and spirit to enhance one's Prana, or life-force energy. By using fresh, quality ingredients that strive to come close to their source, combined with creativity and healing intention, we'll reconnect with your body's original aliveness!
Much of my own suffering in my food journey has been about nourishing not only my body, but my emotions and my spirit. I've often used food as a way to get grounded, to add pleasure to my life when feeling lonely (a message about what we need), or to distract from boredom or pain. A truly satisfying meal can give us energy, rather than make us tired, so we can feel real power in our bellies and spirits.
In meal-making magic, I delight the senses using whole-foods-based cooking techniques combined with traditional and immune-boosting, healing food preparation. I most enjoy using seasonal and locally grown produce (when possible) herbs, spices, fruits, vegetables, greens, grains, beans and sweets.
