The Green Palette Kitchen teaching kitchen resides in Southport, CT yet was actually founded many years ago, in my tiny NYC apartment. When I graduated from cooking school, I began my career helping people heal their physical and emotional issues through food. I began teaching cooking lessons as a way to translate healing foods into everyday cooking that would be easy for my clients.
The kitchen has “moved” with me – to my home kitchen in Connecticut, where I taught classes, and now to my beautiful space in a unique renovated warehouse where I teach on Zoom and in-person. Moreover, my philosophy has always been the same: food can be powerful medicine. Use real nourishing food to heal mind, body, and soul. Most important, food and cooking can be fun!
Magic happens in my kitchen. When I teach an healthy online cooking class, clients learn to transform their fear of cooking into a feeling of true confidence and empowerment. We play, experiment with spices, taste, and eat. When you learn some basic skills and can feel at ease, cooking becomes easy, pleasurable, and empowering. When you and I get together to talk about health and wellness, tasting what we talk about is the best teacher around.
The Green Palette Kitchen is here for online healthy cooking classes for corporate events. We also meet online for my non-cook signature healthy online webinars.
My official titles run the gamut from nutrition coach to cooking instructor to dynamic speaker. More important, I am a wife, a busy mom to three kids, and a woman who works hard in her career. I truly believe in food and its connection to health. Needless to say, I want to know I’m eating the right foods to support my energy and wellbeing.
As a nutritionist, I know all about the science of nutrition, how to dispel myths about the latest diets, and coach you on living your best life and health. As a culinary nutritionist, I live by my philosophy of food as medicine. It’s my mission to individuals how to make simple healthy food taste great so you keep coming back for more.
I fell in love with cooking as a way to translate nutrition information into real-world living and I find nothing more gratifying than to show people how to love real nutritious food too. Sharpening your knife, donning an apron, and chopping carrots is an essential part of learning how to eat well so you can be well.
Delicious food makes you want to come back for more. It’s entirely possible to do this, no matter where you are at with cooking. Most of all, I want you to know to make your food taste amazing.
I hope to meet you in the kitchen someday for an online health cooking class to cook up some magic!
