Moveable Feast

Moveable Feast

When local artist and curator (and fellow cultured foods enthusiast!) Holly Schmidt approached me about the idea of doing a ‘moveable feast’ living art instillation, I felt enthused even before I could fully grasp what it was all about. We had done a workshop at Emily Carr the year before, about art and culture… and both […]




Getting the Most out of Healthy Foods

Getting the Most out of Healthy Foods

Beans, whole grains, seeds and nuts all sound like pretty healthy foods, right? Well, I definitely think that these whole foods are a great place to begin in a whole-foods diet. But did you know that you may not be getting the most out of your whole foods diet? As a holistic nutritionist I had […]




Probiotics and Cultured Foods

Probiotics and Cultured Foods

Many of my nutrition clients and cooking class students come into the classroom or office believing that the key to great health is through some recently discovered super-food or some weird food combining or a totally ‘new’ way of eating.

Community Impact Workshop on Gambier Island

Good Fat, Bad Fat

Good Fat, Bad Fat

As a cook, I know that food needs fat! I would shun any ‘low fat’ product, intuitively choosing high fat yogurts, […]




“Their Fetish is Fermentation”

“Their Fetish is Fermentation”

Despite the outrageous title, I am so pleased that the Globe and Mail called me up to do this article about fermented foods! I have been deeply inspired by the book ‘Wild Fermentation’ by Sandor Katz. He is a ‘fermentation fetishist’, really a traditional foods revivalist. After having a breakthrough in  my own health by discovering the health benefits […]

Testimonials and very nice letters

“Andrea at Rooted Nutrition  is teaching how to use whole foods and her honesty and obvious love for food traditions make her classes exiting.  The food is good.
