Nourishing Recovery
nutrition

Our mission is to help you recognize the importance of nutrition during recovery, develop and maintain a healthy relationship with food, and to feel empowered with the skills and knowledge to make positive nutrition choices. Some of the vital skills we work on together include: 

  • Learning life skills related to cooking, food, and nutrition
  • Understanding how to nourish and fuel your body
  • Connecting with community in a safe and non-judgmental environment

Why nutrition? Proper nutrition is a foundation of good health. It can be especially important during recovery to help keep blood sugars stable and reduce cravings, to improve and stabilize mood, and to replenish nutritional deficiencies that may have occurred during substance use. Eating together also helps create community, an essential piece in long-term recovery!

Cooking Classes

These classes typically begin with a brief nutrition education discussion about how nutrition and cooking can positively impact recovery. Then, we begin the cooking portion, which focuses on basic cooking techniques (chopping, sautéing, baking, mixing). Clients are then split into groups to prepare meals. We aim to help people feel more comfortable in the kitchen and confident in their ability to prepare a healthy and delicious meal. At the end, clients gather to enjoy the meal they prepared together.

Nutrition Education Classes

During this one-hour class, we talk all things nutrition! Topics include: nutrition 101, nutrition during recovery, meal prepping and planning, intuitive and mindful eating, and more. Virtual events are available. Interested in a particular topic? Please inquire!
