You are worth taking care of your health and wellness. It's so easy to take care of everyone, but without your health you have nothing. This is your sign to put you first.

It's my philosophy to practice optimum wellness through the preparation and cooking of whole-food plants in the simplest, most delicious way that will leave you wanting for nothing. As a third generation chef and plant-based nutritionist I've seen the transformation that my clients have experienced on a plant-based diet, from lowered blood pressure, lowered cholesterol, reduced inflammation, fat loss to improved heart health, faster muscle recovery and improved immune system, to name a few.

Some of my past/present clients include guest shark on Shark Tank, Rohan Oza, President of Rwanda's first son and business entrepreneur, Ivan Kagame, multi-instrumentalist musician and singer, Masego, professional WBO champion boxer, Lawrence Okolie and LA Laker NBA Player, Jarred Vanderbilt.

Along with the best-in-class lab partners, we'll conduct an in depth overview of your health and wellbeing through key blood tests and gut microbiome tests covering the following areas:

  • Total Baseline

    • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (including HbA1c)
    • Hormone Panel
    • Cardiac Panel
    • Autoimmune PanelLipid Panel
    • Heavy Metal Toxins
    • Complete Blood Count
    • Vitamin D
    • Vitamin B12
    • HSCRP 7
    • C Reactive Protein
    • PSA (Men)
  • Food Sensitivity

    We test 96 commonly reactive foods. Positivity to these foods can contribute to inflammation and subpar health and well-being.
  • Micro Nutrient

    We test the levels of 40 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids within your cells. With this data we curate a plant-based wellness nutrition plan to bring your micronutrients to optimum levels.
  • Gut Micro Biome

    The GI Map test screens for over 50 bacterial pathogens, viruses, worms, parasites, various yeast types, H-pylori and virulence factors.


Succulent dormant spices awaken by flame, seitan shape shifts into tender cooked lamb, chickpeas unite as hummus and cherry tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives, bell peppers, juice of lemons and parsley create perfect henosis, Greek for a mystical unity, a oneness for all to share.


A Hindi trilogy, crisp Indian beans, sautéed in spices, ripe Roma tomatoes slow cooked into rich chutney, topped with fresh cilantro and the holy grail of flat bread, roti, cooked on cast iron, kissed with coconut oil and sealed with my hands.


Garlic, sautéed spinach, tossed with salty plant-based cheeses and wrapped in flakey, buttery puff pastry that melts moments of ecstasy in your mouth.


Vegan smoked gouda, oven-baked bread breaded plant-based chicken bathed in maple orange hot sauce, sizzling sautéed vegan bacon and crisp romaine lettuce, all sitting on a bed of hot waffles, scraped with jalapeño vegan mayo.
