Foraging Walk + Nutrition Discussion with Nicole Cormier, RD, LDN
Learn more about the microbiome + mindful eating tools
Nicole Cormier is an anti-diet dietitian, local food enthusiast, author, an intuitive eating nutrition therapist, and a certified Be Body Positive Facilitator. Join Nicole for a discussion focused on local foraging, and learn about how to incorporate both intuitive eating and mindful eating exercises into your routine. She will dive into the microbiome, helping you to set a foundation for digestive improvement through deep breathing and movement practices. Each session will include a foraging walk where you'll be invited to gather local ingredients - such as acorns, turkey tail mushrooms, and elderberries - surrounding AutoCamp Yosemite's landscapes. Nicole's passion for functional ingredients, paired with her 16 years of nutrition expertise as a registered dietitian, will bring a unique vibrance to this autumn experience.
