THE LEADER IN HEALTH-SUPPORTIVE CULINARY ARTS AND THEORY

The Natural Gourmet Institute was founded on the principle that what we eat significantly affects our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Each individual reacts differently to food and will thrive on a diet unique to them. Consequently, there is no one perfect food or dietary regimen that works for everyone. With these principles in mind, The Natural Gourmet has created a framework for healthy food selection based on specific criteria for high quality ingredients, concepts of eastern/western nutrition and a variety of dietary paradigms. To accomplish this goal, we look to the whole food traditions of our healthy ancestors as well as to modern scientific studies. Our approach empowers people to tailor their eating style to support their individual health needs.

The following foods are used in our classes:
