About the instructor:

Hello! I'm Lila. I am a Holistic Nutritional Consultant, food writer and illustrator based in Berkeley. I believe food can be our best medicine. I have experienced a profound affect on my health from shifting what I eat. It is a pleasure to work with clients and teach workshops because it allows me to connect with others and help them deepen their relationship with what they put in their body. Don’t get me wrong, I love vegetables, but I also adore chocolate! I have spent many years experimenting with how to make healthy desserts that feel celebratory and satiating. Come and enjoy sweetness in your life without doing harm to your health! www.lilavolkas.com
