Discover how delicious food can make you feel better
Your culinary experience at Skyterra Embrace is designed with two goals in mind:
- To teach you how to prepare and cook your own meals
- To show you how eating well can improve your health.
During your stay, you'll enjoy nutrient-dense meals without deprivation or restriction. No extremes. Just tasty, balanced and structured meals where we guide you toward lifelong positive eating habits.
Built into every meal at Embrace is time to slow down and gain more awareness. You'll savor every bite with less stress and distraction.
Cooking for yourself doesn’t have to be another chore
Everyday eating is not one-size-fits-all. Three times a day, 365 days a year, our chefs serve nutritious meals that are delicious and satisfying. Skyterra’s signature services include the following every week:
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks:
Food is balanced to ensure satiety, energy for movement and overall well-being. You’ll leave Embrace motivated to prepare and eat nutrient-dense food because it doesn’t feel like another diet, and it makes your body feel good.
You’ll not only learn how to cook. You’ll learn how to eat. Daily culinary education and hands-on experience is an integral part of your stay. Group cooking demonstrations are provided several times a week.
Purposeful eating experiences:
Family-style dining brings all of the Embrace students together at mealtime for conversation and connection. Mindful eating and quiet eating experiences are also offered.
Building a healthy and positive relationship with food is foundational to your stay at Embrace. Nutrition talks, mindful eating experiences, and grocery shopping education are included in the schedule every week.
Post-stay nutrition assistance:

Personal supportAnxiety around food? Struggling with sugar dependence? Overwhelmed with a new food intolerance? History of disordered eating or eating behaviors? We accommodate.

Eating should be an enjoyable and positive experience
We hear from many Embrace students who are confused, overwhelmed and stressed about what to eat. The pressures of life can often get in the way of figuring out what and when to eat, causing confusion and indecision about how to take care of themselves.
We believe everyone should be able to learn the skills and tools to prepare their own food. That's why we provide a fun and relaxed hands-on experience for students, cultivating healthy habits for life.
The Embrace Dining Room: A No-Judgment Zone
During your stay at Embrace, you’ll learn how to plan for meals that meet your nutritional needs and schedules, how to be more confident in the kitchen, and how to reframe negative thoughts around food.
All dietary needs and intolerances are accommodated. Since good food is a thing to be shared, meals are enjoyed community-style in the dining room, with positive and encouraging conversations around the table.
During your stay, you’ll learn how to recreate your experience beyond what food is prepared. You will learn how to slow down, eat more mindfully and learn how to listen to your body’s cues, including hunger and fullness.
Leave with a doable nutrition plan for home
At the end of your stay, you’ll leave Embrace with tools you need to feel better and more confident about how food can honor your physical and mental health. You’ll learn how to prepare nutrient-dense meals, how to grocery shop, and how to set up mealtimes and patterns for long-term success. You’ll be empowered knowing not only what to do -- but how to make your nutrition work best for you so you feel stronger and more confident in your body.
