“Be prepared to swap heavily refined and processed products for whole foods, lean meats and fresh vegetables,” Executive Head Chef David says, who recommends shopping for fresh produce twice a week, rather than once.
“Being prepared is essential, not only in the kitchen but also in our mind set. ‘Let food by thy medicine, and medicine be thy food’.”

“It’s true, some stress is good for us and can help us thrive,” says Program Manager, Jaye. “But it is chronic stress and the related health consequences that can negatively impact our physical and mental wellbeing. So it’s imperative we make a commitment to ourselves to understand resilience and develop the skills required to experience and manage our stressors.” Jaye recommends keeping a gratitude journal to appreciate the things you are thankful for in your life.
