I’m delighted to report that I was honored with the distinction of being one of Columbus, Ohio’s BEST cooking teachers for 2017, with over 190 instructors being reviewed! Thank you to everyone who has attended my Food For Life classes and to the awards committee for this honor.

I love what I do! (click on the photo below for details) I’m no longer in Columbus, but my classes will be just as fun and informative!

Best in Columbus 2017

FOOD instead of MEDICINE 

I’ll come to you.

food is medicine
Food is the #1 cause of disease, disability, and death in the U.S., yet nutrition is not taught in most medical schools.
Join us to learn the facts about food, our healthcare system, and how we can all benefit from the Power of Plants.

Note: contact Beth to schedule this presentation in your area.



 Stay tuned for small classes in Pittsford, White River Junction, and hopefully in both Montpelier and Burlington, VT.
