Charlee’s Kitchen

FAME at Charlee’s Kitchen is a 3-month weekly series which include 90 minutes of nutrition education and hands-on cooking. Each week our naturopathic physicians or nutritionists share their in-depth knowledge around chronic disease, wellness, and nutrition. FAME Charlee’s Kitchen can serve those looking for an introduction to cooking and eating whole foods, as well as those looking for a deeper understanding  about the health benefits of a whole-foods-based diet.

Regardless of age, cooking experience, or health status, you and your whole family will benefit from learning healthy cooking skills and nutritional know-how. Each workshop will welcome approximately 15 participants, both children and adults.

Participants receive:

  • 90 minutes with a naturopathic physician or nutritionist each week
  • The Food as Medicine Everyday: Reclaim your Health with Whole Foods book, written by Dr. Julie Briley and Dr. Courtney Jackson
  • A whole-foods-based meal each week
  • Transform your eating habits in just 11 weeks!
