OUR PHILOSOPHY AND TECHNIQUE

We believe how we deliver our message is as important as the message itself. Our teaching philosophy is to meet people where they’re at and lead them to a new place. In our workshops we are tolerant of choices and beliefs that differ from our message. We provide examples anyone can relate to while we share a new point of view. To encourage a willingness to change eating habits and perceptions about food we use familiar recipes to introduce new ingredients, thoughts and skills. We applaud even small changes because we understand every step is important. We appeal to varied learning styles through hands-on experience, conversation, visuals, skits and role-play. Perhaps most importantly, we believe fun and laughter are two of our best teachers and medicines. We often say, if we can make you laugh, we can make you learn. To this end, all of our workshops are interactive and full of life, guffaws and good times.
