Testimonials

I teach people how to harness the power of food and habit, take control of the controllable, and live healthier, happier lives.

Teaching the power of a plant-based diet for enhanced wellness and disease prevention; and creating powerful culinary habits to profoundly influence longevity. The Kitchen Intervention™ is my signature program for addressing the root cause of peoples frustrations with shopping, cooking and eating healthier. It is a process that reboots the kitchen to be a powerful partner in wellness transformation, eliminating useless habits and mindsets around food and cooking, and creating new health-supporting ones.

I just adore Kristen Coffield! I have gotten to know her through her many (20+) appearances on WJLA 24/7’s Good Morning Washington. She is always so positive, encouraging, informative, and is a joy to work with on TV! Her recipes are always delicious and, coming from someone who isn’t a whiz in the kitchen, easy to make at home! After every segment with Kristen, I’ve learned something new and am inspired to live a healthier lifestyle. She is simply THE BEST!!!

Kristen Coffield’s, The Culinary Cure Master Class, is a wellness changing experience. It changed the way I think about food and my relationship with my kitchen. Her insightful guidance is transformative, her sense of humor, knowledge, and passion are contagious.

My husband and I cleaned out our entire kitchen. We started to eat healthier and intentional during the course, which continues to be our lifestyle!
As a wine drinker, I especially appreciated her take on “clean wine.” Her concept of living and eating 5 “clean” days allows for 2 days of flexibility, making it easier for us to to stick with healthier habits.

Kristen understands that we aren’t perfect, and life happens. The Culinary Cure Master Class teaches strategies for navigating food in the real world, making it easier to adopt and stick with healthier habits.

I loved the Culinary Cure Master Class.

When I enrolled in the Culinary Cure Master Class, I really thought I was doing so many things right. Boy was I wrong. Kristen’s 4- week course really delivered on its promise to help me better understand the importance of the nutrients that our bodies need, and so many of the hidden agenda’s that as consumers get us on the wrong trace.

Keeping my food journal for the first two weeks was very eye opening. I discovered that I was consuming too much caffeine and not nearly enough water, and too much processed food (protein shakes and powders), and not enough real plant- based foods. I was able to make those adjustments and start to expand delicious foods that I could incorporate and eat on a daily basis.

One of the big take away moments for me was also to begin to categorize food into “functional food” or food that your body needs for fuel, and “celebratory food”, food that you might eat out on a Saturday night with champagne and friends. No one was telling me not to eat this or that, but rather to understand the difference and to give myself permission to “celebrate” when appropriate.

I now have the tools to eat a healthier more plant -based diet coupled with many more sips of water throughout my day. My energy level and positive mood have never been higher.

I enrolled in The Culinary Cure Master Class with Kristen Coffield in effort to “clean up” my messy eating and hopefully shed a few pounds.

I found the class interesting, easy to follow and packed with useful information. I especially found keeping a journal of everything I ate (and drank) revealing about how my habits were sabotaging me. It kept me accountable and made me realize I could use what I was eating more intentionally. I learned how to identify and use functional food and celebratory to manage a healthy weight, improve sleep and stress less. I realized that I really wasn’t drinking enough water and started measuring it to make sure I was well hydrated. My everyday habits are now tools for looking and feeling my best!

Kristen’s class was based on simple concepts that are easy to follow and MAINTAIN! I have enjoyed her newsletters and Social media posts and have recommended her to many friends who want to just simply eat well and feel better!

She is a Master Class Act teaching a Master Class!

Kristen Coffield’s Culinary Cure Master Class is filled with remarkably simple solutions to complex everyday health issues. She has easy suggestions for improving sleep, increasing energy and making eating healthy again. Her Kitchen Intervention is a game-changer that creates the “right” conditions to cook and eat in a way that support our health. I have the upmost faith in Kristen. I take her suggestions as gospel. Often I run her ideas by my functional medicine MD and he concurs with Kristen’s approach to wellness.

Thank you Kristen for sharing your knowledge in such an approachable way. Your Master Class and the information you disseminate on Instagram have been invaluable.

I joined Kristen Coffield’s Culinary Cure Master Class to tap into her expertise on health and dietary recommendations following a recuperation from hip replacement surgery. I have been working with a fitness coach who has done wonders rebuilding flexibility and muscle strength, but I needed to focus on losing the weight I had gained during a period of pain and lack of mobility. Extra weight was putting pressure on my joints. Kristen’s course was just the kick start I needed. By focusing on what and when to eat and cutting back on fats and sugar, I have lost 20 pounds! Her support provides a frame work for eating responsibly and with a healthful intent. Anyone struggling to achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle will find support for making lasting change with this course.

Wow! You were a hit! They absolutely loved your presentation, Kristen. Two of [the attendees] came upstairs to thank me for setting it up (which, by the way, doesn’t happen often!)

Thank you so much for sharing your time and expertise to a group of young men who are really working hard to change their lives. Good habits are so critical in them succeeding when they leave ASF, so we spend a lot of time on the “soft skills” portion of their curriculum.

I asked the guys after you left to name one thing they were going to change after what they’d learned today, and they had some great responses!

Thanks, again. Love what you do!! 🙂

Kristen is amazing! Our company worked with Kristen to create a corporate wellness event for our company and it was just fantastic. Kristen created a program for busy professionals that helped them understand how to take their health and wellness to the next level. She even prepared some healthy snacks to show everyone how food can be delicious and nutritious…and it turned out to be a great way for out team to connect and share their own recipes and healthy tips so it was a wonderful team-building experience as well. The food was a big hit and everyone loved the learning aspect. Highly recommend!

Kristen changed our lives! As a Doctor-Mom I want my family to eat healthy, flavorful foods, but I don’t have a lot of time—that is where Kristen worked miracles. She helped organize our kitchen, provided recipes and demonstrations and educated us to enhance our meals. Kristen is a delight to work with—professional, knowledgeable and caring—the best!!!

I co-chair the Wellness Committee at PNC Bank. Kristen presented at our firm about how to navigate the holidays, parties and food and not completely fall off the wagon. Kristen delivers with competence, energy and humor.

I worked with Kristen on a presentation for residents of a 55+ new home community that focused on “Eating Better to Living Longer” and I found her passion for the subject to be contagious. Not only was she was extremely knowledgeable about the right foods to eat for improving your diet and reducing inflammation, she was also truly engaging and believable. She definitely practices what she preaches and she has the science to back up her findings. She did a cooking demonstration and served healthy snacks that were delicious and nutritious. Our residents were captivated by her energy and stayed after the presentation to ask personal questions which Kristen was happy to answer. I personally am following her blogs and am considering hiring her as a coach for both my husband and I. I really like the fact that she takes a realistic approach to eating in that you have to have “celebration” food days where wine/treats are an essential part life. I wholeheartedly recommend Kristen as a corporate/group speaker and also feel she could relate to many people and help them get/stay on course for a healthier and longer life as a personal coach.

I was watching the news yesterday morning and was so happy I had selected Good Morning Washington. There you were and may I say, looking fabulous and your delivery was spot on.. You made me want to rush out and buy every item you mentioned and start eating better. As always, you amaze me. I am so proud of you. You are an inspiration to all of us.

Kristen’s ability to translate complicated health and wellness information, into everyday usable advice, made my event memorable. It was no small task to keep 20 of my wine sipping friends engaged, which Kristen did while simultaneously cooking, informing, entertaining and answering questions. We loved the healthy zucchini noodles with shrimp and pesto, roasted root vegetables and skinny chicken parmesan to name a few. The recipes were all simple and delicious, and her flare for public speaking had us laughing, learning and getting excited about creating healthier culinary habits. Many of my friends thought it was by far the best cooking night I ever hosted, and we have been doing this for years.

I cannot imagine a better presenter, educator and entertainer to have at any cooking/wellness demonstration regardless of the size or topic…Kristen is truly one of a kind!

Kristen’s expert culinary coaching has transformed our family’s nutritional landscape to one that supports our health and provides us with the sustained energy we need for our busy schedules–I now look forward to the dinner hour!

Kristen graciously addressed our PNC LIVING WELL Community for our Monthly Speaker Series. We asked her to address how to healthfully navigate the eating, drinking and being merry, that sabotages the holidays for most of us.

Kristen was prepared, funny and engaging. Our audience enjoyed learning how to “Hack” holiday eating… because Kristen had an easy to follow “Game Plan” for any calorie tsunami.

I would recommend Kristen for speaking engagements, team building or cook and learn sessions to motivate and inspire your group to greater wellness.

I worked with Kristen to do a complete a Kitchen Intervention. She cleaned out my entire kitchen, organized my cabinets and threw out foods loaded with sugar. Kristen then customized a food plan for improved energy and weight management, that would work for my busy schedule and everyday life. This was not a diet, but a lifestyle program. Kristen was there every step of the way! She looked at my food journal daily, made suggestions of things to add and take out of my diet, and was always available when I texted her with questions while I was grocery shopping. If you are thinking about making a lifestyle change, Kristen can definitely help you and will be your biggest cheerleader on your health journey. I would highly recommend Kristen to anyone who needs a little nudge in the right direction, a major overhaul, or just needs someone to show them how to navigate the grocery store to come home with meals, not just food! You will not be disappointed
