As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N), and holistic health practitioner (HOL), Kim has led hundreds of local Simcoe residents on her "10 Day Rejuvenation Cleanse" program, yielding life-changing results from countless participants.  Kim oversees the menu at Vidya's, ensuring it maintains a balance between nourishing foods and comfort foods, always in good taste with the highest quality, and ethical ingredients.

Kim's name "Vidya" was given to her by her yoga guru upon graduation. It is a sanskrit word meaning "wisdom/knowledge". When Kim founded Vidya Yoga & Wellness in 2008, she named the studio accordingly, thus naming the restaurant "Vidya's Veggie Gourmet" was a natural extension of a thriving community. Kim is also a Vipassana meditator, a Certified Yoga Teacher and founder of The Vidya Centre For Yoga & Wellness.

In choosing ingredients for the menu, the first emphasis is on organic. Every item in our kitchen is organic, from cooking oils, fruits and veggies, grains, flours, and even our spices. 

Our kitchen is 100% gluten-free. Our Cuisine Soleil organic gluten-free flours are also tested for gluten content below 5 ppm.

Most items are vegan, but where organic pastured eggs or organic goat cheese is used, they are identified on the menu.
