To satisfy my nutritional curiosity and expand my culinary skills, this fall, I will be enrolled as a natural chef student at Bauman College Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts. This program is complementary to my nutrition consultant program and I was super excited to be accepted!
I chose this program because of the whole-foods, restorative, therapeutic, evidence-based approach to cooking that the wonderful teachers provide to students. It is in complete alignment with the nutritional philosophy I utilize working with my clients → incorporating fresh, seasonal, organic, unprocessed and local foods into their diet and lifestyle. As Bauman College proudly states on their website: ”The professional culinary education we offer emphasizes the use of fresh, seasonal, organic, unprocessed, and local foods and goes beyond traditional culinary schools by teaching students how to cook for optimal health.”
Clients always ask me for recipes to incorporate into their meal planning. This career move will provide an additional level of expertise to my kitchen skills and incorporate farm-to-table to world cuisine cooking and everything in between.
As I continue to focus on sports nutrition, I plan on modifying meals and recipes from the classroom to provide the best fueling and recovery meals, snacks and beverages for an athlete’s life to boost overall health and race performance. And maybe one day… a cookbook? 🙂
I will happily maintain my personal nutrition consulting business, accepting a limited number of new clients, so that I am able to focus on my studies. If you are interested in one of my nutrition programs, please contact me today to schedule a one-on-one consultation!
In good health –
