Holistic Nutritional Counseling

At “Living well with Geeta” I work with women experiencing hormonal imbalances and gut issues with an approach to identify the root cause of the specific conditions.

My recommendations include dietary and lifestyle protocols that are always tailored to your needs, while keeping in mind latest scientific research as well as the Ayurvedic principles of balancing constitutions, environment and seasons.

Ready to make the switch to a healthier happier you?

Cooking Classes and Workshops

Food that is cooked with love, guided by the knowledge of the ingredients used and served in an inspiring atmosphere becomes healing!

I offer cooking classes and nutritional workshops individually and as group sessions in both demonstration and hands-on formats. I also do educational workshops and presentations as team building events for private and corporate clients. My cooking is primarily using local plant based foods with some dairy. Specific dietary needs can be accomodated.

Teas and Spice Blends

Cook and savor the flavors with my freshly roasted and ground homemade blend of teas and spices. These are always prepared in small quantities after your order is placed to ensure you get the maximum freshness and healing benefits. Once you use these spices, I promise you will never go back to buying the commercially sold bulk produced spice blends sold in the stores!

Holistic Nutritional Counseling

One-on-One with Geeta
In-person and online consultations available

Nutrition for me is not about blindly recommending super foods and supplements to see temporary benefits. I work towards empowering you with the ability to identify what works for you in order to thrive and make it a part of your lifestyle for long lasting success. But at the same time, I will make sure these solutions are sustainable and practical. So yes, I’ll happily urge you to have that occasional glass of wine or a piece of cake when you’re celebrating with your loved ones!

The only thing I ask of you is your commitment – to yourself and your well-being.

It is very common for women over 40 to start showing physical and emotional signs of menopause.

Empower yourself with some basic understanding of what’s going on in your body and ways to support it.

Optimize Your Digestion

We have all heard the quote “You’re what you eat”. This presentation will take you a step further to prove that “We’re what we digest”. Digestion is of the most important task of the body that is responsible for our heath and wellness. Ancient traditions believe that 90% of the illnesses begin in our digestive tract. Slow and incomplete digestion leads to poor absorption of nutrients and deficiencies in the body. Constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, gas and bloating are all signs of a poor digestive system. We will learn about the foods and our dietary habits that support digestion and what to avoid. Some basic breathing and physical exercises will also be shared to promote a healthy digestive system.
