The Naturopathic Cooking school has been created by Naturopath Sara-Jane Cleland to show you how quick and easy it can be to eat healthy whole foods!

The Naturopathic Cooking School

These cooking schools have been created to inspire change to a healthy balanced way of eating.

Information and ideas have been sourced from different diets including the Paleo diet, a Wholefood diet, a Raw food diet and a Pescetarian diet. The recipes reflect these ideas and therefore are vegetarian with some fish, gluten free, low grain, low sugar and dairy free except for yoghurt and kefir.

Sara-Jane is a highly qualified and experienced Naturopath with a deep understanding of food as medicine and evidence-based nutrition. Sara-Jane often clears up misconceptions and educates on what constitutes healthy food and a healthy diet.

The cooking schools are inspirational, offering both theory and practice, preparation ideas, fun social gatherings and the experience of eating delicious organic food.

'Had fun this afternoon learning about Super Foods, Herbs and Spices at the Naturopathic Cooking School in the Southern Highlands. Some theory first and I learnt a lot, followed by an interactive cooking class where we helped prepare several dishes using organic ingredients, herbs and spices which we then shared together. Was fun and very useful. We can incorporate the ideas into our day to day diet, for our health. Highly recommended!'

'Thank you Sara-Jane, for a very informative and fun class - Raw and Fermented Foods. I learned lots, took home some wonderful recipes and was completely blown away with the deliciousness of the (easily-prepared) foods. I thought this class would be worthwhile but it exceeded even my optimistic expectations. I can easily include these recipes into our daily living without having to make major changes - thanks again, I'll see you at the next class! Thank you so much!'
