Well hello there!

You might be wondering why The Lab? It seems like an odd clinical choice – especially when the focus is on fresh, wholesome, straight from the earth food. But, here’s the thing, cooking, even with a recipe, is experimentation.

Our ancestors may not have worn lab coats, but some brave soul decided to pick up a snail and eat it. Thanks to that brave person and the many that followed, we humans have a diverse and rich culinary repertoire.

The Nutrichologist Lab puts you and your apron somewhere between a loincloth and a lab coat. In this Lab, we tap into curiosity, fun and connecting with our food. We set aside judgement fear of failure and turn it into healthy and nourishing, fun-filled meals. (Except snails, there will be no snail-eating).

I’m so glad you’re here to learn, make mistakes, grow, and flex those culinary skills.

Let’s do this together, friends!

WHAT THE LAB IS ALL ABOUT…

GETTING INTO THE KITCHEN AND TAKING CONTROL BACK OVER YOUR FOOD IS A GIGANTIC STEP TOWARD EATING AND LIVING HEALTHIER. BUT, IT IS AN INTIMIDATING STEP.

THE LAB IS ALL ABOUT PROVIDING A SAFE, GUIDED SPACE FOR YOU TO TRY NEW THINGS AND LEARN ABOUT WHAT WORKS FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

NO HYPE, NO OUTLANDISH CLAIMS, JUST US REAL FOLK MAKING REAL FOOD.

DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?

EATING HEALTHY IS EXPENSIVE

Ever wonder if you should book for a weekend away or buy the basket of superfoods? Besides being insanely expensive, you’re not sure if you will even like them.

HEALTHY FOOD IS WEIRD FOOD

So you decided to try a new diet, but the dishes and ingredients are… well… weird! And, is your diet even healthy if it doesn’t include hand reared chia seeds grown by the descendants of ancient Aztecs?

HEALTHY EATING IS COMPLICATED

Can you be healthy without spinach? Can you eat too much broccoli?
Ugh! Can healthy eating happen without a degree in dietetics or someone?

IF YOU SAID YES TO ANY OF THOSE THEN HERE’S SOME GOOD NEWS

Healthy eating has become very trendy, and it can seem as though if you aren’t eating certain foods that look a certain way, you simply aren’t doing it right.

The truth is that not only does healthy eating look different for each of us, but it also isn’t as difficult, expensive or weird as you may think.

NUTRITION without the HYPE

 

How my journey began,

and where I am now

So that’s me – Dawn, lover of good food, walking and (not sure if you need to know this, but what the heck) zombie shows. My passion, however, is all about the power of mind, body and nutrition. Having come from years of ill health and learning how to take care of my body simply by changing my thoughts, actions and food was nothing short of a miracle. It set me off on a ten-year journey that I am happy to say I am nowhere near ending.

My studies in culinary nutrition and health coaching were the beginning of what I now call my life purpose. It gave me the knowledge and ability to share with others and help them on their path to healthy eating and living.

The Lab is a dream I have had for many years, and I am so excited to be here and share with all of you finally. So if you are looking for a no-fluff, dry humoured instructor to guide and teach you the ways of healthy eating, then all I can say is welcome, and I cannot wait to get to know you better!
