About Mila’s Meals

Home » About Mila’s Meals

Mila’s Meals is, essentially, a parenting tool.

Created by a mom on a mission to raise a well-nourished child (despite food intolerances) and heal herself from autoimmune conditions.

Fuelled by a passion to teach others how to use food as medicine.

Mila’s Meals started as an idea to create a gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free cookbook to help other tired, stressed-out new moms. With 18 great recipes Catherine had created for her daughter.

3.5 years later… it ended up as this….

The Mila’s Meals Manifesto

On the surface

Mila’s Meals is a cookbook, blog & health coaching services

It is about food intolerances, how to cater to them and how to raise a child with them.

Mila’s Meals is gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free.

(It is also organic, non-GMO and free from preservatives, artificial colourants, artificial flavourants and any other chemicals and toxins the food industry is passing off as food.)

At it's heart

Mila’s Meals is a way of life

It is about choosing to prepare your family’s food from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

It is about choosing to use food as medicine, not only as fuel.

It is about whole-person health and choosing to nourish your child’s growing body, not just to fill their tummy.

Catherine Barnhoorn

The Mom, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach & Author

Having used food & lifestyle as medicine to reverse my endometriosis, leaky gut & eczema and having to raise a child with food intolerances to dairy & gluten, I set to work educating myself (through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition) and getting creative in the kitchen.

I am now on a mission to empower moms to make informed decisions with regards to what they feed their children and themselves, so that they can nourish bodies, not just fill tummies!

I’m all about creating REAL health, using REAL nourishment & nutrients.

Mila’s Meals is here to provide REAL information and solutions in a way REAL moms with REAL demands on their time, energy and money can REALLY use.

Mila

THE MUSE

I am a free-from kid! That means I am “free-from”/don’t eat gluten, dairy and sugar.

Why?

Because gluten makes the poopies get stuck, dairy makes my nose snotty and my ears hurt, and sugar – well sugar makes me feel sugary.

(Note from Mama: After Mila ate a sugary sweet she held her hand on her chest and said “Mama, I feel sugary!”)

I pretend to be a very fussy eater because it sends my mama into the kitchen to make really yummy food that none of the other kids at school get!

"I rather would invest my time in the kitchen making wholesome food than spend my time dealing with frequent illnesses and/or disciplining an unruly child."
