Mary’s Place by the Sea Nutrition Philosophy

At Mary’s Place by the Sea we believe in the healing power of nutritious foods for the body, mind, and soul. We lean towards a plant-based lifestyle and embrace balance, self-kindness, and meeting ourselves where we are when it comes to food. We believe in evidence-based nutrition for the body paired with one’s inner wisdom that we all possess to know what is best for ourselves. We understand that food is more than just fuel, it sometimes represents comfort, peace, and love. Our nutrition philosophy encourages our guests to find balance between eating healthy and enjoying life.
