Tumbleweed Nutrition is dedicated to providing evidence-based and culturally inclusive nutrition education for organizations
focused on health equity.
Tumbleweed Nutrition was created out of a strong passion to educate our communities about nutrition, with a special eye on an Indigenous lese. Founded in 2021, Tumbleweed Nutrition LLC provides a unique approach to learning and is designed to provide your participants with the opportunity to learn about nutrition in realistic ways that work for our Indigenous communities. Presentations are offered virtually or in-person.
Cooking Classes & Food Demos
Get ready for a hands-on, immersive cooking class & food demos for your participants. People learn best by seeing or doing and each cooking class explores how to prepare indigenous foods with a twist to offer balance and satisfaction. Participants will learn basic food prep skills and cooking essentials to become confident in the kitchen. Presentations can be offered in-person locally and virtually.
Curriculum development is the multi-step process of creating or improving a class or workshop taught at your program or tribal organization. This service develops or reviews your program's nutrition curriculum or education materials based on a critical and evidence-based examination using health behavior change theories and indigenous knowledge and customs as guiding principles.
"As a farmer, I enjoy working with Denee because she practices what she preaches. She has both the clinical training, but also the lived experience of growing up on the rez and growing her own foods that she incorporates into her diet and uses to teach others in the Navajo community."
