A seasoned plant-based chef, nutritional coach, and now cookbook author, Cathy develops recipes for delicious, low-fat vegan dishes from around the world. She teaches about the profound environmental and health benefits from eating plants.
A few years back my family went through a harrowing medical crisis which set me on a new course. I discovered 50 years of nutritional research and clinical evidence supporting a diet based on whole plant foods to best treat - and many times reverse - our most pervasive and debilitating chronic degenerative diseases.
Like many others who have undertaken similar dietary changes,the results for my family have been spectacular and we have never looked back.
Most of us are blithely unaware or indifferent to diet and health until serious illness strikes. I want to help others prevent a medical tragedy from ever occurring. But if it does, I will help you find your way to healing and recovery through whole plant foods
My mission is:
to educate others about the powerful health impacts from eating a plant-based, nutrient-rich diet that is low in fat
to guide them as they transition to a plant-based lifestyle
to empower them to stretch their culinary horizons in delicious, health-promoting ways and learn some new tricks in the kitchen.
to support families by providing super healthful vegan meals, adapted to their medical needs and lifestyle goals
There are so many scrumptious avenues to explore!

"...I just returned from the nephrologist (who was), in his words, shocked to see the level of improvement, especially in someone who was close to red-lining. He's never seen that before, but he may not have had any patients that changed eating patterns as carefully as I have....You are the person most directly responsible for making this happen, so I am in your debt and cannot thank you enough."
