Private Cooking Lessons
Alaina personalized the menu to our tastes. We learned a lot more about plant-based protein sources and new ideas for desserts and breakfasts. We left with enough delicious leftovers for lunches & dinners for the next few days, along with the detailed recipes. We repeated the recipes within the first week. Alaina also followed up with additional information about our questions involving cholesterol after our cooking lesson. We definitely recommend her classes for healthy, tasty meals.Sep 9, 2018Verified
Alaina is a breath of fresh air. She communicated frequently and with great detail. She was enthusiastic throughout the entire experience and offered lots of alternatives when something didn't work for my palate. I highly recommend her.Mar 27, 2018
After working with Alaina I have been able to completely change my relationship with food and gain a new outlook on life. The most important thing that I have learned is that food can be a source of happiness. Food can be an emotional thing for a lot of people. And for me, I was using it as a coping mechanism; both in ways of over-eating during stressful periods at work, or as a control tactic, depriving my body of the fuel it needed when my relationships weren’t working out how I wanted them to. I worked with Alaina at these times to help understand my relationship to food and the effect it was having on the rest of my life, not just my body. When I was able to understand that food is a life source and what we put in effects everything coming out, it was easy for me to want to try new things and make changes.Apr 24, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?To decide if we're a right fit for each other, I typically like to schedule a complimentary discovery session together. During this session, we will discuss your health and lifestyle goals to determine the actions you can take to achieve the results you want. After that, if we decide to work together, it's recommended that we meet once a week for 4-12 weeks, depending on the clients goals and desires.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Certified Holistic Health Coach, training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition Certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always had a desire to learn about the food I was eating and how I can improve my health. A few years ago, I stumbled upon a local health coach's blog (at the time, I didn't really know what a health coach was!) and reached out to her to learn about her experience and what it meant to be a health coach. After hearing about how much of an impact she was able to have in her client's lives and knowing I wanted to impact people the same way, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and soon realized I loved this work!! Through my training I discovered that living a healthy lifestyle was about so much more than just eating healthy food or going on a diet. Every area of our lives are connected and have an impact on our health and wellbeing. It is now my mission to help women become the healthiest version of themselves and have a blast in the process!
