Behavioral Nutrition begins by exploring new tastes slowly, just a spoonful at a time.  I do “Food Tasting” in my office (yes, just like a “wine tasting”) of unfamiliar foods, where you  can taste whole grains, such as kamut, quinoa, more healthful sweeteners such as brown rice syrup, agave syrup, or plant proteins such as pinions and tempeh.  

Other steps in Behavioral Nutrition include learning the simple art of reading Nutrition Facts labels and Ingredients labels, pantry exploration (whether your own or Joy's Kitchen), learning about healthy pantry staples, grocery list composing, and grocery shopping tours.   

It’s one thing to have all the good foods in the kitchen, it’s another to know how to put them together to make a nourishing meal.  This is the final step, learning the simple skills that turn a bag full of groceries into a wholesome and nourishing meal…and, quickly, too. These simple steps, taken at your own unique pace, lead to you loving nourishing food.  

JOY is also a Registered Yoga Teacher and has had a personal practice for over 35 years.
