Meals at Mirasol
Relearning Normal, Healthy, Mindful Eating
One of our goals is to provide our clients with the experience of normal eating. We're proud of our cooks, who create a wide variety of delicious meals and can easily accommodate needs such as food allergies and vegetarian lifestyles.
At Mirasol, clients make their own food choices from meals that are served buffet style. Along the way, they're given guidance in re-establishing accurate portion sizes and meeting nutritional needs according to personalized guidelines developed by our staff nutritionists.
We believe that during a client's treatment she should eat the healthiest food available while her body is healing. We use organic and whole foods whenever possible, and can accommodate vegetarian clients as well as many food sensitivities.
Meals at Mirasol: No Taboos, Lots of Challenges
Mirasol's nutritional philosophy has evolved over the years, based on feedback from former clients about what worked best for them after treatment.
Meals plans are highly individualized and based on the client's weight goals. Our goal is to equip clients with the skills they need to develop their own meal plans so they can feel safe eating in different situations and live lives free of eating disorders.
Cooking with Robert
Mirasol Chef Robert Kuzyk believes in maintaining an open kitchen, encouraging clients to repair their relationships with food by becoming more involved in the process of creating it.
"The first step is getting them to trust me," says Kuzyk, "and then walking them through the process of preparing the food, so that they realize that what they're getting is nutritional, healthy food that also fits into their meal plans.
