cooking is an important step to healing
You’ve said it before…”I’m gonna start eating healthy.”
You do great for a week or two and then quickly slip back to your usual routine. What you really need to do is decide to COOK more to eat healthy…
You need community, accountability and inspiration to get started and keep going.
Join me and learn to make simple, delicious & healthy meals for you and your family. We’ll make seasonal, organic meals that maximize the health benefits of food and minimize your time in the kitchen. You’ll leave each class excited about being in the kitchen and eating healthy. We will prepare about 5-6 dishes and then sit down to enjoy it together.
All meals are gluten-, dairy- and refined sugar free! And I promise you won’t miss a thing!

Stressed out over what to eat ?
Dealing with digestive issues like IBS, SIBO or ‘leaky gut’ is no fun. It’s hard to know what’s good or bad. Join me and I’ll give you tips on how you can be your own detective, what the common healing diets are and how to make delicious meals within the constraints of these healing diets. This class is little longer than usual so we can cover all the topics. All meals are gluten, dairy, refined sugar and garlic/onion free (- but I have a trick for this!)
You’ll get a nourished belly, written recipes, and handouts on gut healing.
On the menu so far…Lamb and Fennel Stew, Ginger Salmon & Green Beans, and Turkey Kofta with Tzatziki Sauce.

And now I am going to trying harder to do meal planning and easier meals (I often try pretty complicated things and after hours of cooking it sucks and I feel deflated)I highly recommend Maria’s class. It’s a re-connection with cooking and nutrition for busy people.” Joanna
