Pure Roots is holistic and plant-centric. I believe in eating real food and that vegetables should be the true rock stars on our plates – those are the truths that withstand diet fads and the forever confusing and changing dietary guidance. I believe it’s important to respect each person’s individuality, lifestyle, health picture, nutritional needs, decision to eat what you so choose – and therefore do not subscribe to one particular diet for all.
I teach both omnivores and vegetarians alike. The focus is then on eating whole, healing foods – unadulterated, organic, fresh, beaming with flavor and vitality, closest to the way nature made it, and buying local as much as possible. For omnivores, the focus is on sustainable sources of animal-based protein, but with respect to the ecological impact of eating higher on the food chain and animal welfare. I avoid known inflammatory, sugar-laden, packaged, processed food and drink “products” as our habit.
Finally, you learn, honor, and listen to your own body to determine what is right for you.
Also, no calorie counting or measuring here, either!
