Nutrition

Our kitchen staff is led by Belinda Jones, the Dietary Manager with a degree in Fitness and Nutrition plus years of experience in cooking, catering, and meal planning. Belinda, and a staff serve three complete meals every day and prepare healthy snacks for refueling throughout the day. No one needs to go hungry; a healthy fruit or salad bar is available along with the meals. We believe in good fuel and proteins for the body.

Belinda will be glad to speak with you about your personal needs and individual dietary considerations. If you don’t like onions, that is okay, the staff will make your food the way you like it including gluten free, vegetarian and/or vegan.

We offer several educational workshops each week. Belinda offers cooking demonstrations and nutritional lectures.  You will receive the latest information on nutrition to help you develop a healthy lifestyle.  We take time to help you develop a dietary schedule during your stay which you can then continue to use when you get home.
