We help each culinary student or recent food and beverage graduate, experience that empowering feeling that comes when you prioritize life and begin making healthy accomplishments happen.


A 14-week Externship where you live and work with the Dawson's, learning about how food can be your fuel, but your medicine!


GETTING STARTED
When you make the change from unhealthy eating habits to a smart, healthy and sustainable approach to nutrition, you'll feel, look, and think better than you ever have before.
It's advice you hear from your doctor, your dietician—and your mom—all the time. But what exactly does eating right mean? This section explains in simple language what you need to know about eating right. Invest a few minutes to browse this article and learn by heart the four main "ingredients" of our Nutrition Camp with Fog Island.
1. FOLLOWING A WINNING RECIPE!
Since 1993 Fog Island has been mentoring culinary students and coaching how “Eating” has a purpose...is all about getting the nutrients you need without the calories you don't.
2. PLAN YOUR MEALS
If you were to go on a family vacation, do you engage in planning your actions so to maximize the results and happiness? Sure, you do...and we can do that with the food we eat also!
Thoughtfully plan what you're going to eat ahead of time. When you do this the night before, or even a whole week in advance, you take the guesswork out of it. That means you won't wait until you're hungry and then haphazardly look for something to eat (which often leads to unhealthy choices).
3. TRACK OF YOUR FOOD.
Pay particular attention to the quantity, quality and timing of your meals. Answering the question, 'Did I eat the right portions and at the right time, in this meal?' By regularly answering Yes or No, you'll develop a precise and automatic thought process which will gently course-correct.
4. JOURNAL HOW YOU FEEL AFTER EACH MEAL
If you eat too much, you might feel guilty, heavy, and too full. When you eat correctly, you'll feel healthy, satisfied, and good. By regularly checking in with your feelings after a meal, you'll develop a very keen awareness over time about the connection between your emotions, mindset and how you're eating. This in turn helps you internalize and own what you're learning so that you develop a real sense of nutritional wisdom. All that leads to better and sustainable results, which is one of the primary goals of Fog Islands Nutrition Camp
Keys to becoming a
helpful Camper in the Fog!
1. Always be the change; always be changing.
2. Ask more questions; give less answers.
3. Always lead heart first; avoid going in head first.
4. Always utilize the same teachings and methods for everyone.
5. Always empower; never enable.
6. Always be patient; never push.
7. Know yourself, know your story, and share it as often as possible.
8. Learn to discern context over content; know that the higher meaning is very often between the lines--beneath the surface.
9. Seek to rise above conflict, complaints and negativity; see the essence.
10. Always hold the intention of nurturing growth; never get attached to outcomes.
Change means we have to abandon our old self. It means that we must leave behind our identity and begin to speculate would we could be.
Fog Island mentoring is modifying behavior enough where change becomes permanent. It is living life from a different point of view.
The promise of a new mindset beckon’s us to new feelings and emotions that we have not experienced yet. Our brain fires new neurons and thoughts are created.
Learning is when feelings become associated with a past event.
Understand why it is important to grow from patterns of action. The reward should be Happiness J
Find uniquely positive things in others, and give them Hope by leading by example. We help each culinary student or recent food and beverage graduate, experience that empowering feeling that comes when you prioritize life and begin making healthy accomplishments happen.
