Nutrition

At The Acorn, we love talking about food and its nutritional benefits. We create plant based recipes that are delicious and can be cooked easily to inspire you in your own kitchen.

Katie has spent more than the last decade adapting recipes to suit the requirements of her family and gently increasing the content of plants and decreasing the animal products. The family has seen amazing health benefits that have secured Katie’s beliefs in the plant powered way. She now runs a fully plant based kitchen at home and at The Acorn.

Katie recently studied a course on Whole Food Plant Based Nutrition with Cornell University and has applied this to her cooking and the plant powered workshops.

In January 2018, Sarah joined the heartwood kitchen and has been an absolute asset and inspiration to watch, going from someone who barely ever cooked (she married a feeder!) to confidently producing beautiful meals.

“The journey of nutrition and food is a life long process. It is one that will have a unique path for each and every one of us. There will be reasons we choose to eat and cook the way we do – our upbringing, our own physical response to food, lifestyle and personal experiences with health.”

For Katie, the importance of nutrition is that it satisfies many areas. That it is foremost about health – fuelling our body in a positive way and giving ourselves the best chance to stay well but it is also achievable and enjoyable because otherwise it simply won’t work or at least not for long. I encourage people to look at their own approach to food. What do they think they do well and what they would like to change and then planning steps to HOW this will happen?

We have witnessed some wonderfully positive changes from some of our guests and have received many encouraging comments about how they have been inspired by being at The Acorn. I really love talking about food and nutrition and love the idea that food is here to heal and keep us well… we just need to use it properly and go back to nature. “A food that is whole will always be worth more than the sum of its parts.”

We aim to inspire people to take steps towards their own ideal way of eating and give them support in this process

We are very lucky to have a Thermomix in our kitchen and even luckier to have Sam Croom, a top Thermomix advisor who works with us, creating dynamic workshops.

This is Sam after receiving second place in top sales people in the UK and Ireland. She is utterly passionate about these magical machines.
