Make Friends With Food Cook & Dine Group: Smart Snacking

Snacking is an important part of recovery, but it's an area people often struggle with. What constitutes a "snack"? When do you eat one? How big or small should a snack be? In this month's cook & dine experience, we explore snacking, and give you the tools to snack smart -- and scrumptious! This group will demonstrate 3 different snack options using the same base ingredients.

Fee: $175

This collaborative cook & dine experience is co-led by a therapist, nutritionist and a chef. These groups will help clients make friends with food by participating in meal preparation, and de-mystify the cooking process in an effort to take the fear out of food! Whether you are working to address fear/challenge/risky foods, or need help learning how to add food variety to your meals, this group will satisfy! The group will then dine together for a therapeutic meal session to process the experience. All cook & dine sessions will include:

  • Hands on practice in the kitchen
  • Mindful Eating Meditation
  • Meal pre/post process session
  • Help decrease anxiety around food
  • Address destructive thought patterns & behaviors in real time
  • Challenge food rules & rituals
  • Increase comfort around social-food events
  • Active support to encourage connection with hunger, fullness, and satiety
  • Friendly, warm, and caring staff
  • Take home recipe card & mindful eating meditation card to continue to practice your new skills at home
