Blogger, Baker & Healthy Food Maker
Why the bee and the Bea? It’s a family tribute. The former is my brother’s drawing and the latter is my late grandmother whom I resemble more and more each day. She liked to bake too.
Weal Food is a blog, business and way of being.
Weal means wellness and food is fuel.
This blog shares my knowledge of healthy eating, experience with recipe alchemy and insights about food.
Food for thought as featured on this site include:
- nutrition information
- recipes adapted for health, accessibility and special dietary needs
- musings about food and related issues
i.e. exploring the social significance, cultural meaning, nutritional value, health benefits, history and political implications of food
Nutritional consultations, cooking classes and catering. See Services page for details.
Holistic nutrition aims to address the health of the mind, body and spirit through food and the essential nutrients food provides. The focus is on tailoring eating plans to individual needs which is determined through a thorough consultation.
Health education, individual accountability and healthy lifestyle choices are the key components to success in holistic nutrition.
Food selection and preparation are important too. The ideal is to choose a whole foods plant-based diet.
Way of Being
Weal means wellness and my focus is on food that helps achieve and maintain health, wellness and natural healing; in essence, Foods that Nurture & Nourish.
Food is many things: sustenance, celebration and comfort. It is a social lubricant, cultural artefact and emotional support. In short, food is life. It can impact the mind, body and emotions in a medicinal and therapeutic way and should be savoured (not saved), enjoyed and eaten in moderation.
A whole foods plant-based diet with the right proportion of slow carbs, quality protein, healthy fats and a balance of raw and cooked food is the ideal balance for health.
