Our recipes provide a functional nutrition focus to support vibrant health. We believe nourishing food is the best medicine, and cooking empowers the healing journey.

WHY DOES BK FOCUS ON ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIETS, FOOD ALLERGIES + DIETARY NEEDS? 

Inflammation is at the root of all dis-ease. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet helps reduce inflammation and manage symptoms which is a foundational part of the healing journey. Food allergy symptoms are the body’s response to inflammation.

Change is hard, and making dietary changes is challenging; figuring out what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner with dietary restrictions is hard and can feel punishing.

“I am all about nourishing, not punishing” with my extensive education and experience, I have the skill set to really help guide people with the “how-to” of making the changes they want to make by providing menus, meal ideas and recipes with adaptations”.  

“ I offer practical examples of what breakfast, lunch & dinner looks like using sensible ingredients to help people succeed in their health goals”.
Functional Nutrition Chef Karina Hines CFNC

WHAT IF YOU CAN'T BUY LOCALLY OR DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO FRESH FOOD?

I think we all have to do the best that we can. Buying frozen fruits and vegetables is great; they are as nutrient-dense as buying fresh, sometimes more so, as they are harvested in peak season and immediately frozen.

Buy as many fruits and vegetables as possible and grow what you can in your backyards, containers around your home and your local community gardens

WHY IS BUYING LOCALLY IMPORTANT?

When we buy from local farmers, we are reinvesting in our own local food security, economy, environment and personal health.

WHAT DOES EAT TO THRIVE MEAN?

It means eating nourishing food to support your body.  It means eating a rainbow array of colourful and vibrant plants every day to help balance your health and wellness. Eating to thrive is intentional eating which is the opposite of just eating “whatever” processed, life-dulling foods.

It is the ultimate empowerment of each individual who wants to choose nutrient-dense food to experience the benefits of eating vibrant foods, feeling great and thriving.
