As a certified holistic health coach and personal chef I've been cooking and teaching since 2008, specializing in vegan + vegetarian cooking. I meet my students where they're at. With each lesson we'll build a strong foundation of healthy cooking basics from salad dressing to dips, frittatas and plant based swaps.There's no right time to start. All you need is a desire to try new things. Progress not perfection. I email my students the recipes we've made after every class, so they can have an ongoing collection of go to recipes.

My students have expressed having an easier time in their day to day schedule within the first month and more confidence in the kitchen and an overall better sense of wellbeing within the first 3 months.

*My prices are for private one on one classes. Please message me for group rates.

About Emily A.

I'm so glad you're here!

What started with one cookbook and a need to get healthier inside and out has grown into a business. I've been in love with cooking healthy energizing food for as long as I can remember. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and grew up surrounded by art and music; nurtured by my family, and propelled by my innate need to create.

I believe food is medicine. My focus is helping you add more plants into your diet. I’ll help you turn your kitchen into a healing, grounding environment.

Emily was a patient & knowledgeable instructor. She was easy to talk to & answered all my questions. She made cooking my first frittata an enjoyable experience! I highly recommend cooking with Emily!

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her! I couldn't have been happier.
