The Naturopath's Cooking School

Sara-Jane Cleland Food Educator created Naturopathic Cooking School
The Naturopath's Cooking School


These cooking schools have been created to inspire change to a healthy balanced way of eating. Information and ideas have been sourced from different diets including the Paleo diet, a Wholefood diet, a Raw food diet and a Pescatarian diet. The recipes reflect these ideas and are therefore vegetarian with some fish and chicken, gluten free, low grain, sugar free and dairy free except for yoghurt and kefir.


Sara-Jane is a highly qualified and experienced Naturopath with a deep understanding of food as medicine and evidence-based nutrition. Sara-Jane often clears up misconceptions and educates on what constitutes healthy food and a healthy diet. The cooking schools are inspirational, offering both theory and practice. You will receive a recipe booklet and many preparation ideas, in a fun social setting with the experience of eating delicious organic food.
