If you’re into improving your health, you likely already know how important eating whole foods is to the proper nourishment of your body. In my practice of Culinary Alchemy®, certain whole foods align with the energetic centers of your body, which are called chakras. Everything in the Universe is energy – including you and I. When the vibrations in your energy centers become blocked due to things like trauma, negative self-talk, or poor nutrition, there are certain foods and techniques that can help bring that energy back into flow. Culinary Alchemy® is important for your health because my method combines all of the elements of true holistic health – energetic health, spiritual health, mental health, and physical health. I analyze my clients’ blood panels, subjective feelings, nutrient deficiencies, energy blocks, and emotional health. All of these elements must be balanced to fuel your best life and to live out your purpose with a happy, loving, magical energy.
Working with clients, I began to see the power in the vibrating energy within real, whole foods. Every food, every liquid, every plant, every animal, the soil, the ocean, the stars, even YOU, and I – are all made of vibrating energy. Consuming these vibrating atoms in their different forms will affect the energy within you. For example, broccoli has different energy than a banana or a filet of salmon. What you eat can fuel and heal the 7 energy centers in your body known as chakras. It seems like magic when my clients who struggled with self-esteem find themselves feeling confident and empowered simply by changing their diet to add in more yellow-colored foods (to balance the sacral chakra) and incorporating the mindfulness techniques in Culinary Alchemy®. Even though my method is based on science, research, and ancient practices, one of the most important elements is – love.

From a place of spiritual nutrition, our energy centers, also known as chakras, have different colors that represent them. If you're having different colored food throughout the day, you are also supporting all of your energy centers!
Connect physically with that feeling of gratitude, and then take that feeling into the preparation of your food, your lemon water, or your morning coffee or tea, to have that feeling infuse into it.
Practicing presence with your meals allows you to take in that moment and receive that nourishment. It helps combat overeating, calms your mind, and allows your body to absorb the energy from the food properly. Water is what your body needs to run itself. Start each day with lemon water which helps to alkalize your body. It does a slow detox throughout the day without you even knowing it!
Periods of rest are where your body, mind and soul are able to recharge, where you find inspiration, and where you can find space to connect with your higher self and higher power. Activities such as meditation, restorative yoga, taking a bath, reading a book, enjoying a cup of tea, disconnecting from technology, can all be wonderful ways to wind down and prepare your body and mind for restful sleep.
