"A huge thanks to you for  volunteering your (precious) time to Gilda’s Club Living Room members; they

were so receptive and enthusiastic about the information you brought- much “food for  thought” as well as

plant-based ideas and recipe. I loved the miso tahini sauce;  can’t wait to repeat this at home."  ~Jane A.

"The class has a great balance of information and hands on cooking.  Sampling recipes was great.  I have more energy for the day and find I don't miss the old way of cooking.  It's getting easier to come up with menus where "meat" isn't the starting point."  ~ Joan M

Personal Chef Services and Diet Coaching

"Having Christine come into my home and whip up a week’s worth of delicious vegan meals for my family was wonderful.  Having meals already prepared waiting in the freezer for those hectic nights when you worked late, had to transport kids somewhere was a relief.  I was able to pick the foods I wanted (tried some new ones too) and it helped me choose a healthier alternative than a quick made processed meal or eating out." ~ Deanne S.

"Did you ever go grocery shopping and see all of the different kinds of produce and products that are available?  I used to be one of those people who never ventured far from my comfort zone.  My idea of greens was salad, broccoli and green beans.  Little did I know how much good stuff I was missing out on until I contacted Christine at Food for Living.  We started with 6 weeks of counseling sessions.  She slowly introduced me to some produce that I never thought I would enjoy.  She provided me the recipes to help me get the most out of the experience.  She never left me wondering, “What do I do with this?  To enhance the experience of trying new foods, I hired her to provide personal chef services.  The recipes that were available were varied and interesting.  Each meal was delicious and provided me greater opportunity to expand my palate.  I would highly recommend Christine.  Her knowledge about wholesome food and healthy alternatives is amazing."  ~ Diana G.


"Christine, you are amazing! The food looks glorious...I can't believe this is my fridge. You did so much work in so little time (left the kitchen cleaner than you found it). I tasted a little of the escarole and beans & pasta...absolutely YUM!!!. I am so grateful." Barbara C. 


"OK, just had to tell you that the macaroni and non-cheese was so good! I've honestly never really explored vegan cheese alternatives, so I was excited to try it. If I hadn't known already, I would never have noticed the difference! The salad dressing was also extra good this time around! Can't wait to try the rest." Diane T.

"We're eating like royalty here...thank you so much." Barbara C.


"We had the tempeh for dinner tonight and LOVED it!!!! The curry tasted like we ordered it from a Thai restaurant!"  Diane T.


"Oh, wow, Christine...the muffins rock!!! Did you taste them? You are gonna heal me with food...how can I thank you enough!" Barbara C. 



"I want you to know how much I am enjoying your newsletters.  I find them interesting, informative, and inspiring.  I am continually moving forward and enjoying a more plant based diet.  Thank you."  ~Sue D.


“Great email last week (What's wrong with Dairy), just finished reading it. It reinforces the documentary we just watched recently, Forks Over Knives. F.Y.I-I'm forwarding it to close friends and family. 

I'm glad we found you. Hope to get a class together in the near future."
