Diet and Nutrition Workshop at BIOM

We didn’t forget about those of you who weren’t able to attend BIOM’s Diet & Nutrition: The 5 Element Way workshop.

Here’s the “takeout” we wrapped up for you:

The Joy of Learning
We started out with some slow, quiet, and easy Chi Kung to turn our attention inward; exercises that promote a strong, healthy digestive system.

We honored our stomachs with a delicious serving of quinoa with shitake mushrooms; (pronounced ‘keen-wa,’ this cereal grain is from Peru, and is closely related to amaranth).

We then learned about 5 Element principles, and discussed the 5 Element food groups. We talked about what “balance” means from a 5 Element perspective, and how to combine foods to create energetically balanced meals that build an energetically balanced body.

We analyzed and discussed recipes, emphasizing how particular foods provide extra health benefits when eaten at the right time of the year, and became more familiar with important, unfamiliar, Asian culinary ingredients.

There was a lot of tasting, sipping, talking, and laughing.

The Joy of Eating
The day’s menu included:

  • Quinoa with shitake mushrooms.
  • Shrimp in lime broth.
  • Miso soup.
  • Marinated ahi tuna.
  • Poached lotus root.
  • Udon noodles with shitake mushrooms and spinach.
  • Kukicha twig tea (Japanese).
  • Sencha tea (Japanese).
  • Pear with lime juice.
  • Health Coaching With Kitty
    If you have a special need related to food, like allergies, food sensitivities, a problem managing your weight, one-on-one coaching with Kitty is a proven way to get the results you’re looking for.
