It is more important now than ever to share good news about plant-based nutrition.

Even though I believe that “nothing tastes as good as feeling fantastic feels,” the truth is that neither flavor nor presentation need to be compromised to eat healthfully.  Whole-food plant-based diets have been shown to not only prevent the major deadly diseases (heart disease, diabetes and cancer), but to actually REVERSE many of our chronic diseases – the conditions that make the coronavirus so life-threatening.  We can take charge of our own health.  It’s exciting and empowering.

Who says plant-based meals can’t be delicious and satisfying? 

As a culinary instructor for over 19 years, wellness counselor, and passionate health advocate, I foster health and wellness through a whole foods plant-based lifestyle.  My passion is to help you thrive.  I am committed to creating and sharing whole food plant-based recipes that provide optimal health for the body while delighting your palate.  Join me on this journey!

“When you have your health, you have everything.” – Augusten Burroughs

Due to the class schedule interruptions last year, all gift certificates that were issued in 2022 will remain valid through the end of 2023.

Please note:  All recipes are Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB).  ‘Whole food’ describes whole, unrefined, minimally-processed foods without extracted ingredients, such as sugar or oil that would damage the body’s endothelium (the inner lining of the arteries).  ‘Plant-based’ describes food that comes from plants, and does not include ingredients originating from animal, such as meat, chicken, fish, dairy products, eggs, or honey.  Ingredients are sourced locally and in-season whenever possible.  Menus are subject to change depending upon availability at farmers’ market and local suppliers, as well as passionate inspiration. I look forward to meeting you in class.
