I love food. I own more than 200 cookbooks and enjoy preparing meals that are both nutritious and delicious. However, I know that a healthy relationship with food doesn’t always come easily.
I believe that healthy eating doesn’t need to be time-consuming or complicated, and that health is not dependent on body weight.
No matter what your food and weight history, I can help you restore or discover a healthy, vibrant, peaceful relationship with food and guide you to find your best ways to nourish yourself. The results? More energy, better health and improved body image.

The traditional—and best—way to cook it is in a wood-fired oven (mobile or otherwise), but you can easily make do with your home oven using a skillet or pizza pan.
I know how much better my weeks go when I meal plan, and having tasty leftovers (in the fridge or freezer) is an important part of my planning. This is why I count Ellie Kreiger’s newest book ‘You Have it Made: Delicious, Healthy, Do-Ahead Meals’ as an important resource.
