I am the plant-eating Executive Chef at Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to live Retreat!
After switching to a high nutrient, whole food plant-based lifestyle, I effortlessly lost over 60 lbs, have more energy than ever, feel younger, have cleared up several skin conditions, and have found a whole new enthusiasm for life.
My food is always created from fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, nuts and seeds, and whole grains. The recipes are always free from oil, added sugar, animal products, refined flour, and have minimal to no added salt!
I aim to create a better world, one bite at a time by bringing you vibrant recipes that excite your taste buds and nourish your body!
is to create and share flavorful food, recipes and strategies that promotes health and well-being for individuals, the planet, and animals using the latest nutritional science.
Chloe's Clean Cuisine is dedicated to improving not only health of individuals, but also the health of the planet!
Sustainability is built into Chloe's Clean Cuisine by:
Avoiding plastic to-go containers and recycling any cans, bottles, etc that food products are purchased in
Composting food scraps (methane, which is 30x worse than carbon dioxide for the environment, is created when food scraps are sent to landfills rather than when they decompose organically)
Cooking with plants which are exponentially less resource intensive innately reduces the carbon footprint of this food
Sourcing produce from local farms when possible
How I use the latest Nutritional Science
Chloe's Clean Cuisine ensures you are fully nourishing your body by staying up to date on current research. For example, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, collard greens, etc) contain a compound called myrosinase. When you chew it and eat it raw, the myrosinase forms sulforaphane which is an amazing cancer fighting compound. However, cooking destroys myrosinase. When myrosinase is destroyed, sulforaphane is never created. Chopping and exposing the cruciferous vegetables to air for 40 minutes will create sulforaphane that does not get destroyed after cooking. Or, adding some raw cruciferous vegetables or mustard powder to cooked cruciferous vegetables will create this compound as well.
Chloe's Clean Cuisine uses Ceylon Cinnamon, not any other type (here's why).
Onions and garlic, which are incredible health foods when consumed raw, but lose much of their benefits when cooked. To preserve their anti-platelet effects, they are chopped and exposed to air for ten minutes before cooked to retain their benefits. A little raw garlic is added back to the final meal to further boost and maximize their benefits (check out more info on this topic here).
These are just a few examples (of many) where how I ensure you are getting the absolute maximum nutrition in every bite through nutritional science!
The Importance of Mindset
The difference between “I can’t have…” and “I don’t want…” can make all the difference in this lifestyle. Shifting your perspective regarding your food choices is quite possibly the most powerful tool we can use to sustain a healthy lifestyle change. Join me as I share what works for me, what I have learned the past five years, tools to implement sustainable change, and how viewing our food in a new light makes living this way extraordinarily easy, delicious, and fun!
