Learn Nutrition Science courses empower the next generation of children with the knowledge to make healthy nutrition choices and the skills to grow and prepare healthy whole foods.
A holistic health approach includes the whole person and whole body in discussions of illness and wellness. Rather than view our health as reductionists do, by looking at specific body parts and specific symptoms and then treating these in isolation, a holistic approach looks at everything going on in a person's life. Holistic health practitioners know that eating right, moving our bodies, getting enough sleep, getting regular doses of sunshine and nature, and having supportive relationships are the cornerstones of a healthy life. Any one of these factors, when out of balance, can lead to disease, sickness, and suffering. Holistic health teaches us to prevent disease and unnecessary suffering through our lifestyle choices so that we can thrive everyday.
Get HIP to Health: Learn Nutrition Science courses by Healing With Plants help students get HIP to Health with these three guiding principles.
HEALTH IS WEALTH: The best education on Earth, or all the money in the world, is not very useful if you do not have your health. Chronic disease is currently plaguing a majority of Americans and yet most of the common ailments are completely preventable with nutrition. Nutrition education equips students with the knowledge of how to eat to thrive. Health is the most basic measure of well-being and is a necessary foundation on which to build a good life. A healthy person is capable of doing anything they set their mind to without being held back by disease. Equipped with healthy lifestyle habits, the sky is truly the limit for the future leaders of tomorrow.
INGREDIENTS MATTER: Learn Nutrition Science uses 100% whole plant foods in all our cooking classes. Everything we create in the educational classroom or kitchen garden is free of artificial preservatives, colors, and hyper-processed foods. Our whole-food, plant-based recipes are nutrient dense and feature a rainbow of fresh and seasonal plants.
PLANTS ARE PEOPLE FOOD: The plants growing in our garden have all the macronutrients and micronutrients people need to be healthy. People have been plant eaters from the beginning - our origins were in the forest garden. Fresh fruits, roots, shoots, and seeds are full of nutrients, fiber, and pure water filtered through plants. Plant foods also contain hundreds of phytonutrients each - these are special nutrients only found in plants which help protect us from disease. Nutrition experts recommend that at least half your plate be full of fresh plant foods and to eat a rainbow of plants everyday!
