Delicious food begins with good dirt. Good dirt begets healthy plants, which beget nutrition-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Although I installed raised gardening boxes a few years ago, I have engaged in an on-again, off-again relationship with their contents. Radical neglect seesaws with zucchini-eyed ambition to eat fresher and "shop" from home.
As part of a concerted effort to think more intelligently about the foods I eat, to pepper my recipe rotation with some creativity (see how I did that?), and to attune to changes in my body and mind as I enter new stages in my life (how's that for a euphemism?), I'm looking for opportunities to bring a new perspective to my garden, my kitchen, and my shopping routine. Enter Rana Parker, UCLA trained dietician and nutritionist.
With an astute awareness of the emotional, logistical, habit-based defaults we each bring to our diet and food choices, Rana offers a total nutrition rehab. Literally from the ground up, Rana will help you plant and grow healthy foodstuffs, rehab your kitchen for optimum success, create meal plans, conduct grocery and farmer's market insight-tours, and reset your approach to eating well and feeling wonderful.
Our first class with Rana will re-introduce us to foods we know and underestimate :) and share secrets to optimizing health and responding to diet concerns such as gluten allergies, age-related bio-chemical changes, vegan options, skin issues, and more.
