Food Is Medicine. Learn to Use It Wisely.
Hello! I'm Lisa Mase', culinary medicine educator. I am here to support you on your wellness journey.
If you’re exhausted, unhappy with your weight, suffering from a chronic condition, or needing to change your eating habits, food as medicine is for you.
After a decade of healing from chronic parasites, anxiety and depression, an eating disorder, and food allergies, I took my health into my hands with food as medicine. I have never been better.
I create food-based healing programs for you to find a balanced weight, feel energized and nourished, rest well, and practice cooking simple, seasonal meals that are attuned to your body type and health goals.
You will also learn how to use food to heal common dis-eases, from the cold and flu to indigestion and constipation.
I am passionate about food sovereignty, which is "the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems". As a white woman with a great deal of privilege, I strive to do work that centers people of color and holds space for the leadership of those most affected by lack of access to food.
I co-chair the Food Justice Committee for Vermont's Farm to Plate Network and serve on the design team for Food Solutions New England, a regional food systems network with racial equity as its platform.
I am certified in Sustainable Food Systems through the University of Vermont and continue attending courses on Mindful Eating, Mind-Body Healing and Culinary Medicine. I am a member of Food Tank and Slow Food.
I work with those who need support in healing from chronic conditions such as parasites, Crohn's Disease, Celiac Disease, Colitis, IBS, and auto-immune disorders. I work with FODMAPS, SCD, GAPS, Paleo, Gluten-free, and other dietary protocols.
I help busy families and those who want to learn more about whole, local, seasonal eating to achieve their goals.
I draw from the wisdom traditions of European Herbalism, Ayurveda, Macrobiotics, Mindful Eating, and Chinese Five Element Theory to offer a comprehensive, universal view of food as medicine. I stay attuned to nutrition and diet trends to better support you and answer questions.
After ten years of chronic illness, I was able to take charge of my own well-being with food as medicine.
You can make this transformation, too. Food is at the root of our well-being.
Let's work together to bring vibrant health to people and planet. Simplify your food choices to reduce stress, save money, feel well, and enjoy life!
I am happy work in partnership with your health care provider if you like.
We can start with a series of culinary medicine consultations or a complete one-month guide. You will feel knowledgeable and ready to choose whole foods, as close to the source as possible, which reflect the food your ancestors ate.
