Let me show you the true nutritional value of Jamaican/Caribbean food & how to fit it into a sustainable diet.
'Caribbean Food-U' is a 90-minute Webinar where I will cut through all the B.S. old wives tales surrounding the most popular Jamaican dishes & clarify HOW you can fit these meals into your day/week without affecting your waistline. I'll clear the confusion that sometimes comes with eating meals & recipes that have been passed down to us for generations. Like... how many patties are really an appropriate amount to have?! WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I HAVE 2 PATTIES?! Stuff like that.
We are Caribbean people...
...and we love our food. We love to cook it, we love to talk about it, we love to share it and we damn sure love to EAT IT! We also like looking good & feeling good, especially when swimsuit season is a 365-day thing for us! You've been led to believe that if you keep eating your Jamaican food, you can't look good & feel good, or that you need to cut out everything, go ITAL or vegetarian if you want to see results.
The truth is: It's possible to have that bikini body AND eat Caribbean food year-round. You just need to know the TRUE nutritional value of our food, and HOW to fit it into your life.
My family owned & operated a Jamaican restaurant in South Florida for many years while I was in college, I used to spend my summers eating fresh-baked patties straight out of the oven while chatting with the chef & watching him make the Oxtail, Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken, Rice & Peas and all the other niceness for the day. At the time I knew ALL the ingredients, but had no clue of their true nutritional value. Once I spent time learning about macros & the true content and value of foods, I was able to make the connection and understand what I was really eating when enjoying traditional Jamaican meals.
Let me help you cut through the nonsense with my rooted-in-reality, straightforward & easy to understand sharing style. I'll show you how to eat your green plantain without worry...
when is it?

where is it?
The magical land of Zoom, your favorite pandemic connection point. Okay seriously... It's a Zoom Webinar, and if you can't make it in person, you will have lifetime access to the recording, which means you can refer to it anytime you are running through your favorite Jamaican recipe, and use the information as needed.
who is this for?
This is for you if you've ever felt confused about how Jamaican foods fit into a healthy & well-rounded diet. If you're someone who has thought you need to go Ital or vegetarian to lose weight or "be healthy". If you're someone who is unsure what meals to choose when you stop at a cook shop or Sugar & Spice to grab a patty for lunch, but don't understand HOW that fits into your food selections for the day. If you're someone who isn't in charge of the cooking at home, so you feel unsure about how you can eat the Jamaican meals while you're trying to lose weight... then this is for you!
You'll know the true content and nutrition in the most popular Jamaican dishes, you'll know how to lighten them up without sacrificing flavors, textures and general JOY! You'll understand how to fit Jamaican meals into day or week, without affecting your waistline and without the general confusion that sometimes comes with eating meals & recipes that have been passed down to us for generations. (Like... how many patties are really an appropriate amount to have?! WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I HAVE 2 PATTIES?!). Stuff like that.
what you'll get
1. A live webinar where I'll break down the complicated nutritional value in the most common Jamaican dishes (think Ackee & Saltfish, Yam, Escovietch Fish, Brown Stew Chicken etc.) You'll leave with an understanding of what the true nutrition value is in Jamaican/ Caribbean foods, so you can fit these foods into your regular diet without worry and confusion.
(a $90 value)
2. A PDF download of the recipe breakdowns, so you can use the macro information for future cooking & tracking.
(a $50 value)
This webinar will be packed with value and is being offered at a great cost/savings to you for $30 USD. My goal is to provide you with enough information that you can make informed decisions about your food on your own, and have lifetime access to this recorded Webinar to use as you see fit to support your food journey in the future.

"Being guided by someone Jamaican who understands the food and culture and therefore is able teach me!! I enjoyed being part of the group cause seeing we were all experiencing similar stuff allowed me to say, you got this."
"I learned what foods to eat and in the correct quantities. I learned how to choose healthier options and how to 'let go' when I haven't met my goal & start again tomorrow. I’ve learned to be happy with me"
"Camille's realistic, pragmatic and holistic approach is refreshing when it comes to helping you to achieve your weight related goals. It isn't just about the body but the mindset too. She provides a toolkit of resources including an exercise programme to help you along the way and if there is anything you don't understand, just ask!"
What if I can't make it on the day? It will be awesome if you can make it on the day because there will be opportunity for Q&A and I will be going through the recipes & worksheets with you live. If you CAN'T make it though, the recording will be shared afterward and you'll have lifetime access to it for future reference. You can also DM me if you need something clarified from the recording!
I am not Jamaican. I'm Trinidadian, how will this help me? Many of our Caribbean dishes are based on similar regional ingredients, which means there are major connections & similarities! I'll break down mainly Jamaican dishes, but will also touch on dishes from other islands. Once you understand the basics, you can apply them to ANY island dish!
I don't cook, so why would I need these recipe breakdowns? This will be helpful for you even if you don't cook, because it will make you more aware of what is in the dishes you are ordering when you eat out, or when someone else is preparing the meals. Having this knowledge will make you MORE capable of making better decisions when ANY meal is offered/presented.
I'm a vegetarian, what if you don't talk about any of the dishes I eat/like? Since I'll be going over the major dishes/ingredients in common Caribbean dishes, whether you eat meat or not, the ingredients are generally the same, minus the meat. This means you will still be able to apply all info shared to whatever format your meals take. Think "Curried Chana" vs. "Curried Chicken" — both are curries with the same flavors & spices, both have a great source of protein, one is vegetarian, one isn't.
hi, i'm camille
Cams if we’re close! I’m a slightly awkward but VERY cool 38 year old (do the kids still say cool?) I was born & raised in Jamaica, studied in South Florida for many years & travelled extensively (I’m an explorer!) before settling in the UAE, where I’ve lived for 6+ yrs.
At various times in life, I struggled to keep the weight off & tried all the fad diets. After finding the science of macros & the sustainability of flexible dieting, I lost ~45 pounds & have managed to keep it off for many years. I can honestly say I have found my happy weight & my happy place.
I now coach women who have similar struggles & help them overcome those struggles so they can find body confidence & maintain their weight eating the food they love!
