Sifting through nutrition information, guidance, opinions, and plans easily become confusing and overwhelming. If you’ve ever craved step-by-step guidance for how to reign in your sugar habit, bump up your energy levels, master meal planning, or to integrate the latest science about eating for less pain and inflammation, these nourishing immersions are built to help you to build momentum in a short period of time.
The topic and content in these Nourishing Immersions have been carefully chosen and designed with the Space to Grow community in mind. We know that creating change and building habits can be challenging, but that understanding the ‘why’ behind a change and having the support that you need can make all the difference. That’s why these immersions offer background on the science and the ‘why’ behind recommendations. You’ll also be able to join our 5-day focused community challenges to walk through these nourishing immersions in real-time with the support of others and to ask clarifying questions while applying the strategies, worksheets, and reflection prompts that are applicable to you.
These lessons are never meant to be food ‘prescriptions’ for the "right" way to eat. No one person can give you all of the information that you need to decide what, how much, or when to eat. Knowledge about the nutritional composition of food and food patterns, properties of various foods, and the biological impacts of food choice and timing can be critical in allowing you to make strategic decisions. However, it is only through experiencing for yourself different ways of cooking and eating that you can decide how best to eat. The conversations that we have about food and nutrition are meant to provide ideas and inspiration. As a member of ‘A Space to Grow’, this is a community for you to explore ways to add more enjoyment and possibility to your own personal eating patterns.
We consider nutrition and nourishment to be an ongoing journey. There there is always an opportunity to broaden and to deepen your experience.
That's why each immersion is designed to help you narrow your focus to tangible action steps, along with practices designed to keep you calm and help you embody the change that you create in your life. Immersions include guidelines for success, daily discussion and reflection prompts, and balanced guidance for food and supplementation decisions. Through repeating immersions over time, you can find new focus areas for your own eating journey that help you to build more knowledge, confidence & opportunities for your own eating.
