About Us

We are Tara and Sara, and we don’t just want you to feel a little bit better. Nuh-uh. 

We want to get you up dancing again instead of feeling like crap and spending half your life obsessing over how to get well. No more fad diets or celebrity “experts.”

We created the Yin Yang Diet so you can take control of your own damn healing.

 

We’re acupuncturists and co-owners of the Village Community Acupuncture in Vancouver, BC, and we’re here to teach you how to heal yourself with ancient kitchen wisdom. You can toss those pricey supplements and so-called superfoods. All you’re going to need is ordinary foods from the grocery store and farmer’s market.

The Yin Yang Diet grew out of our unshakable belief in food as medicine and our determination to be in charge of our own healing.

Most days you’ll find us talking about food, sharing food, experimenting with food and meal-prepping for the week ahead. Tara’s a tidy cook who follows recipes to a T, while Sara’s a kitchen tornado who can’t follow directions to save her life. Sara needs a big sharp chef’s knife while Tara uses one puny steak knife to prepare all her meals.

We are, however, united in our belief that food is nonnegotiable. From quality ingredients to how we eat and who we eat with, food brings us wellness and a sense of connection to our bodies, families, community, and planet.

If you want to know about us, know this: We laugh all the time. We’re girls — okay, women — well, acupuncturists, entrepreneurs, wives, and moms — who just wanna have fun.

And most of all, we want to cheer you on to reconnect with your inner child and get out there and PLAY in the street to your deepest heart’s content.

We’re talkin’ joie de vivre, baby. And we’d love to have you along for the ride.

 

Mwah!
