Culinary Health Coaching
Better health begins in your kitchen!
Your health is your wealth. The older we get, the more we realize how true that statement is. One of the most important building blocks of health and longevity is eating well. You simply cannot live life to the fullest if you aren't nourishing and taking care of yourself. And eating well begins with home cooking.
Do you want to make healthier choices about what you eat?
Do you struggle in the kitchen and feel lost and overwhelmed when it comes to planning, shopping, and cooking?
Have you been diagnosed with a health condition like high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, or hypertension, that could be improved through better nutrition?
Do you want to learn new recipes that will help you feel fuller for longer so you can maintain your healthiest weight?
Has your healthcare provider recommended that you change your diet?
Do you already have a chronic health condition and want to start making natural, healthy changes that can help you better manage and possibly reverse it?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then Culinary Health Coaching is for you!
My culinary health coaching programs are designed to guide you step-by-step to meeting your health and wellness goals...starting in the kitchen. This isn't about complicated rules or trendy diets. And it's not about restrictive thinking.
Culinary health coaching is a partnership that results in improved lifestyle choices and will help you understand how to nourish your healthiest self by eating more natural, whole foods that come from plants.
My philosophy is based on meeting you where you are (no judgment here!) and helping you to tackle your challenges whether it's learning home cooking skills, meal planning, efficient and economical grocery shopping, or using plant-based whole foods to create nourishing, budget-friendly, and delicious dishes that promote health and longevity...I can help.
Coaching programs include a health assessment, goal setting, regular check-ins that provide supportive accountability, and live cooking sessions. Many coaching programs do not include actual hands-on training together but I believe doing is the key to success.
After you complete your coaching program:
You'll have gained knowledge and kitchen confidence.
You may see reductions in cholesterol, blood pressure, and weight.
You'll notice an increase in your energy which can help you become more active.
You may experience an improved quality of sleep.
Unhealthy cravings can dissipate.
And your digestion will improve.
My programs are not cookie-cutter, DIY programs. They are individually designed with you and your goals in mind. Personal, highly engaging, and enjoyable programs - for individuals or groups - help you lay a solid foundation for your lifestyle so you can experience real results. I believe we all want to feel our best, to make the most out of each day, and to have the best quality of life for as long as we can.
Changing the way you eat can feel overwhelming.
