Pure Roots is holistic and individualized. The focus is on “eating real food, not too much, mostly plants” (Michael Pollan). With all the diet fads that come and go, this is the strongest foundation I know. It’s important to me to meet people where they are, respect each person’s individuality, lifestyle, health picture, nutritional needs, level of interest in cooking, 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. We prioritize eating healing foods, i.e. organic, fresh, local whole foods 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. For all, we avoid/minimize 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!
