Eating Recovery Center Washington Announces New Culinary Team: Thomas Cuisine Management

We've all heard the phrase "food is medicine," but what does that really mean? Proper nourishment through the right foods is a key factor to promoting health and wholeness for a malnourished mind. Eating Recovery Center Washington (ERCWA) is committed to the treatment of serious eating and related disorders and treats malnourished minds every day. Yet, eating disorders aren't just about food; they are about so much more. In this complex illness, food becomes a maladaptive vehicle that is used to regulate, avoid, and numb uncomfortable or painful emotions.

While it's critical to identify the psychological underpinnings of disordered eating behaviors in order to heal the wounded body, mind and spirit, this therapeutic work cannot be undertaken if the patient is not properly nourished. The right foods become the first line of medicine for a malnourished mind. To enhance this practice, ERCWA is joining forces with Thomas Cuisine Management as its new culinary team.

Thomas Cuisine’s philosophy resonates with messages of health and wellness: nutritious food, fresh ingredients and sustainable practices. The company’s unique farm-to-table philosophy ensures not only the best source of nutritional support for patients, but also support of the local economy. No other eating disorder treatment center offers such a balanced and collaborative approach to re-nourishing the minds and bodies of those who come to ERCWA for help, for hope, for healing. Thomas Cuisine's wholesome food provides inspiring fresh ingredients tailored to patients and provides inclusivity to individuals with different dietary needs. Its creative chefs will provide meals and snacks to ERCWA patients in Residential and Partial Hospitalization Day Treatment programs.

Mealtime support is an essential part of the process. At ERCWA, patients are joined at every meal and snack by compassionate and caring clinical staff, who eat with them and model healthy behaviors at the table, while providing emotional support. Food isn't the sole cure; it isn't a magic pill and there is no perfect way of eating. Yet, food can be seen as medicine, in its ability to provide individuals with facets that promote health.

Food meets one of our basic needs of survival: it nourishes us. It can bring a starving body back to life by providing the essential nutrients and energy it needs to survive. ERCWA strives to make this experience as helpful as possible. One way it does so is by using appealing food to nourish and connect to others. The eating disorders treatment center wants the table to be a safe place for all; food can promote health by nourishing the body, providing self-discovery, and social connection. In a way, food is medicine, and yes, while food is necessary for survival, it can also be used to thrive.
