A revolutionary course designed to ignite change in food thinking.

Available as a self-study course June 2019.

Help your clients live their best expression. The Genomic Kitchen Professional course provides in-depth insights into the nutrition science and educational strategies that make the concept of Culinary Genomics both revolutionary and essential to health professionals.

In this course, you will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of nutrigenomics and culinary genomics and how to use them in education and counseling in the private practice, community or institutional setting. This course will introduce you to the extensive evidence-based science behind the Genomic Kitchen's M.I.S.E. ingredient toolbox and how its ingredients optimize information for human genes, human health and longevity. Learn how food-gene interactions can influence and mitigate oxidative stress, inflammation, detoxification (biotransformation), immune response and key biochemical processes in the body. With nutrition science in hand, discover how to work with key ingredients in the kitchen to optimize the information they provide to genes and subsequently health.

Throughout the course learn how to translate nutrigenomics and culinary applications for the public in comprehensive and actionable ways, with or without genomic test information.

Parallel to the science, we review relevant components of the public Genomic Kitchen course and supporting educational materials to enhance your understanding of how we're teaching the public about genes and genomics, why we're teaching it  and some of the questions they may have for you.

As professionals, you also receive our signature nutrition education roadmap visuals that support learning and counseling. Detailed scientific references accompany course visuals, and an extensive supplemental reading guide is also included. This course also presents options to teach this program live in your community, or refer your clients to our online program. Take this course if you are interested in learning about the basics of nutrigenomics and how you can apply them today with your clients.

I really love your MISE strategy and learning it has allowed me to finally stop making "complicated" meals. It resonates with me, so I'm confident it will resonate with my clients through me. 

by Felicia Cordier, MS RD

It's wonderful when someone like yourself merges science with culinary and creativity and creates a new twist on the classic "dish" of culinary nutrition. For me the course bridges my integrative, culinary and biochemical expertise & keeps me excited to continue to grow and learn after 33 years of practice.

Your program, The Genomic Kitchen has been so inspiring, challenging, and changed my relationship with food. For that I want to say THANK YOU! 

by Nancy Waring, MS CPT, CCFS

Amanda is AMAZING!!! She succinctly captured the true essence of the science of nutrition, how food works in the body, how to prepare foods and how it works for you! Complete with toolbox, slides and detailed roadmaps to reference again and again! Highly recommended for anyone interested in nutrigenomics! 

by Mary Rosen, MS RD

What an information packed course. I absolutely loved it! Not only a wonderful review of information I already knew but many great new gems as well for my Toolbox. I wanted to be able to attend the sessions live, but life had other plans for me. Your generosity to share this information is so refreshing from every angle! Looking forward to your next course offering, whenever that may be. Thank you so much for developing this course. I am spreading the word to my non-functional/integrative RD friends to not miss your next offering of this course. I’ve told them that they do not know what they are missing!
