Culinary & Nutrition


In today's world infinite information is available at your fingertips. What foods are and aren't supportive of our health is confusing, as you can find so much conflicting information. Meridian Integrative Wellness supports you in going through an investigative process, using your own body as the barometer for what is good for you, taking into account recommendations you have from your health care providers, if any.

That means that we don't subscribe to any one diet or way of eating, rather, we help you determine what's right for your unique body and lifestyle, and provide you with one on one health coaching and/ or hands-on learning in our kitchen with our Wellness Chef to help get you closer to reaching your nutritional goals, whatever they may be.
