We are what we eat, and there are more and more studies showing that how we eat determines how we think and influences our decision-making and our emotional state. Learning to eat healthy is essential to our well-being, not through prohibitions, but by choosing in order to have healthier habits.
Are we cognizant of where we are by observing and identifying those foods that we routinely eat? Which ones am I most attached to (emotionally or physically)? Does our nutrition jeopardize our health?
In this workshop, we will present interesting families of foods and their classification (protein, carbs, etc.) and see basic cooking techniques. We will practice with simple recipes that are healthy yet pleasing to the senses in order to try out different tastes and textures (techniques for cooking cereals, vegetables, etc.). We will also acquire a knowledge of the basic flavours associated with emotions and see the relationship between the vital organs and how they can affect our health.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) describes five elements, each with specific characteristics that are highly correlated with our essence. This workshop will help us discover how we identify with some of the elements, thus revealing the best way for you to eat, not only based on your essence but also to improve your emotional self. We all know that not all diets work. This tells us that not all foods are suited to everyone. There are people, for example, for whom a salad can be a good source of food; others, however, are bloated by salad, which disagrees with their organism.
Find out what TCM says about the best way to eat. We will give you guidelines to tone and revitalize your vital organs for the purpose of generating positive and harmonious emotions.
Course intended for those people who want to improve their relationship with food and understand which ones are best suited to their physical and emotional well-being.
