BEE Bee Healthy

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.

Blog
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

Business
Nutritional consultations, cooking classes and catering. See Services page for details.

Holistic Nutrition
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 Philosophy
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.

  1. Love the ethos of your site Kimberley and there are some very tasty looking things. I too have always wished to go to Ethiopia, the coffee ceremony sounds amazing. Popcorn is an interesting addition, like the movies but better! Happy days, lee

    1. Hi Leroy,
      Thanks for your comments and compliments. Ethiopia is an intriguing place and the coffee ceremony is pretty cool. Popcorn is interesting for sure but it doesn’t come with butter!

  2. After a 14 day detox in Thailand last summer, and recent news of cancer in my husband’s family, we’ve committed to a more plant-based diet. The naturopaths in Thailand said 80%, which seems tough, but we’ll work up to it slowly I guess. Look forward to perusing your blog. 🙂

    1. Hi Shelley,
      Thanks for your message. I’m sorry to hear about the cancer. A plant-based diet seems to be the way to go, according to various experts and personal testimonials. Good luck with your new food journey! I’m sure 80% will be very achievable.
