Cooking for ADHD/ASD, Gut Health, Food Intolerances & Optimum Nutrition with Jo Whitton of Quirky Cooking
Due to food intolerances and health issues in her family (herself and her four children), Jo Whitton began researching ways to improve their health through diet from the time her kids were very young.
In 2014 she published her best-selling Quirky Cooking cookbook and began teaching allergy-friendly cooking seminars. However, about this time her son Isaac was diagnosed with severe OCD and anxiety and Jo’s mission to help her son heal naturally began.
As Jo learnt more about the importance of a healthy gut for reducing inflammation and healing both physical and mental health issues, she began to focus specifically on traditional, healing foods and ‘food as medicine’, rather than just avoiding allergy-friendly cooking to reduce allergies and reactions. Not only did Isaac’s mental health stabilise, but her whole family saw massive improvements in their overall health.
In 2017, Jo published her second best-selling cookbook, ‘Life-Changing Food’ as a collaboration with Fouad Kassab (food writer and whole food chef). In her third cookbook, ‘Simple, Healing Food’, Jo takes a deeper dive into gut health and culinary medicine, and shares practical ways to transition to the traditional, healing, whole food diet that helped her and her family so much.
Jo loves helping families reduce the overwhelm caused by chronic health issues, guiding them towards simple diet and lifestyle changes that will heal and nourish, one small step at a time.
This talk will be highly relevant for parents, adults with ADHD/ASD, anyone with gut health issues, food intolerances allergies & sensitivities or anyone that wants to enjoy delicious & nutritious whole food & their family members and other professionals working in this field.
I invite you to join me in learning more about creating delicious, nutritious food with Jo!
