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.
Kristen brings a rare blend of authenticity, unbridled enthusiasm, along with a deep expertise to everything she does. ALX Community has been privileged to offer our members the opportunity to hear Kristen’s story while learning how to make healthier choices and everyone loves her!Kelly E
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!Kim C
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!!!Susan Ascher
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.Francoise Thalacker
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.K Ambrose
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.Timmi
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!Leigh Carpenter
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!Susan M. Ascher, MD
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.Françoise Thomas
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!
