Nutrition Counseling

The appearance of things changes according to the emotions, and thus we see the magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are in ourselves. – Kahlil Gibran

Being healthy involves more than simply being in good physical shape, it means surrounding ourselves in healthy environments, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, keeping ourselves emotionally healthy, and eating a nutritionally balanced diet.

We are working on providing nutritional counseling and classes to continue our holistic approach to total mind and body wellness in our beautiful and tranquil gourmet kitchen. We will continue to add tips, information on special diets, recipes, and articles for you.
