Welcome to Holistic Nutrition for the Whole You!

Traditional food is food that is locally produced with minimal man-made chemical exposure. It is food that is harvested by a human hand versus a machine. It is food that has been prepared with intention and care. Traditional food is the basis of nutrition.

Today, science is illuminating the wisdom of traditional food knowledge in detail never dreamed of by our ancestors. and that is what Holistic Nutrition for the Whole You is all about.
