Introduction: I don't tell my clients what to eat, sit back and let them figure it out. I walk with you, educate you and teach you actual lifestyle skills that empower you to make a sustainable lifestyle transformation. I see each individual as just that, an individual and not a number or a statistic. My focus is on plant-based foods because when you look at the American diet that is the missing piece, not to mention the common denominator amongst all nutrition philosophies. We all know veggies are good for us, but we aren't eating enough of them. So my goal is to get more vegetables on everyone's plate and break down the belief that healthy food doesn't taste good, because when cooked right it can be delicious! I've seen my clients go from hopeless to hopeful, from medicated to unmedicated and from tired and apathetic to having a life full of vitality. I listen to my clients and I empathize with their specific life situations. Everyone is in a different place on their health/food journey and that is okay. Whether you have been diabetic for 15 years or want to prevent developing the health ills you've seen run in your family I am here to educate, encourage, hold accountable and whatever else may be needed for you to achieve your desired results.

Emily is very knowledgeable, professional and realistic. She is an excellent listener who responded with a customized approach to partnering with me to help achieve my goals. I felt that she genuinely wants to use her expertise to help me in a way that I’m comfortable with and understand. I highly recommend Emily!

Emily is fantastic, informative, engaging, thoughtful and fun. If you're interested in learning more about cooking delicious food and simultaneously improving your health, I can't recommend Emily more! My entire family enjoyed our time with her.

While my friends and I decided not to work with Emily (we didn’t work with anyone; changed our plans), Emily was extremely responsive and a clear communicator.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Feel free to see standard pricing on my website. For personal chef/catering work everything is quoted by the job. Please reach out!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I hesitate to say what is typical because something very important to me is seeing each client as an individual and learning from them what their needs are. Many people like to start with my Resolution Package. This includes us sitting down for an initial nutrition intake session, a follow up session to go over some nutrition education and goal setting, a pantry makeover, a grocery store tour, and a beginners healthy cooking class. From there we decide what they need next accountability, further cooking education, or both. It's a team effort! For clients I am catering/cooking for we will discuss, typically over the phone their preferences and what they are looking for.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Credentials M.S. Nutrition in Human Performance Logan University (in progress) B.S. Foods & Nutrition in Business George Fox University Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition T. Colin Campbell Foundation Plant-Based Professional Certification Rouxbe Cooking School Mastering Blood Chemistry with Emily Morrow Learn more about me on my website!
