Candace Bell BA (Hons), CNP (Hons)
Candace holds a degree in fine arts and is a visual artist and a graduate of The Institute of Holistic Nutrition. She is the founder of holistic-as-heck nutritional consulting. Her mission is to show the world what a dramatic impact diet and lifestyle can have on overall health, both mental and physical. With a big focus on digestive wellness, Candace teaches that how you eat can be just as important as what you eat.
With dietary restrictions having an ever-shifting constant in her life, Candace has become skilled at adapting and creating recipes, and has become a self-proclaimed Kitchen Witch. For years she has facilitated Educational Dinner Parties in private homes, and has taught cooking classes and workshops in stores, homes, cafés, and schools throughout the greater Toronto area. Over the past few years she has specialized in fermentation and dehydrating.
Candace’s approach is education-based. She loves getting people excited about reclaiming their personal power and creating total wellness. She specializes in delicious concoctions, self-empowering re-education, a noisy enthusiasm for eating, giggly times, and cheesy rhymes.
HFP04 Holistic Food Preparation
The kitchen is the unique laboratory where pure, natural and whole ingredients are transformed into healthful, vibrant dishes. Hands-on experience in preparation of breakfast “power-drinks”, nourishing soups, simple one-pot dishes and several Ayurvedic food items brings another dimension to the holistic curriculum. Emphasis is on proper preparation of grains through soaking, sprouting or fermentation and choice of healthy un-processed oils and fats to preserve and enhance nutritional value of foods. Raw foods, fermented condiments and other high enzyme preparations will be explored. All cooking classes are vegetarian.
