Whole Foods Philosophy Workshops in 2024
With the New Year upon us, who among you are looking to make healthier choices in the New Year? With the plethora of diet trends and health experts available, it may be tempting to jump into one health regime, and ‘stick to it’ whether its working for you or not.
Or perhaps you’ve tried fasting for weight loss, and noticed that the weight comes back shortly after returning to regular eating habits: why is that? Perhaps you’ve experience cravings, or late night binging? From counting calories as strategy for weight loss, to changing your diet to vegan or Paleo, which one is right for you?
If our goal is to benefit our health, and we’re all unique, determining what is healthy for ourselves will also be an individual process. Tired of following diet fads that don’t work for you? Done with trends that require calorie counting, and leave you feeling starved? Ready to master cravings, and build immunity with healing seasonal foods? Perhaps the question we need to be asking is ‘is there a way to sort this out?’
Join Chef Laura for Whole Foods Philosophy, for a three hour workshop focused on understanding numerous whole foods based health and wellness trends, including: Ayurveda, Blood-type diet and Epigenetics, Traditional whole foods and Seasonal eating. Together we will explore the nature of cravings, mid afternoon and late night binging, and delve into how fasting does and doesn’t work for weight loss, as well as contemporary diet trends.
By learning the basics of the time honored practices of Ayurveda, seasonal diet practices, and their own genetic dietary heritage, each student is enabled to take charge of their wellness in a fad-free way that works for them. *Assessment of each students dominant Doshas (Prakruti and Vikruti) conducted as part of the workshop, followed by group discussion and follow up recommendations.
This three hour workshop provides access to understanding the environmental and biological factors that affect your health, and provides guidelines for managing your diet, environment, and overall self care in ways that support your individual needs.

“I totally enjoyed your class at Planet Organic tonight, Chef Laura: already signed up for March Muffin Madness class. I am just starting up with healthy foods, trying to change eating habits, and pulling my family along with me. When I tried your recipes at home, they were so good my husband ate them!” 

Heather, breast cancer survivor, Planet Organic Class, 2013

We really enjoyed the Planet Organic lesson last week. As a 'newby' cook I not only learned a great deal about the preparation of Warming Kichadi and Raita but also technique. I have been a hacker with vegetables but having watched you I’m confident that I can now practice a wider range of knife strokes. We are shopping for the ingredients for both and hope to experiment soon. See you on Dec. 12th for Whole Foods Christmas Baking class.”

Your Winter Salads class was fantastic, Chef Laura! I enjoyed it so much, I made the Mood Maker recipe for my son and his family for dinner, and every one loved it! Your little boy looks wonderful: you have really inspired me to try some new things – thank you!”
