Whole food cooking acts as the foundation of physical vitality, and works to balance us in mind, emotions, and spirit.

Courtney Coleman,

Nutritional Therapist, CookWell Coach, and Personal Chef

Hi! I’m Courtney, and I’d love to help you in whichever ways you need, with healthy, whole food cooking that’s totally delicious, using the specific ingredients that are best for YOU.

I tailor my support to fit your needs, whether it be:

Coaching You with Nutritional Therapy,

Teaching You to CookWell (individually OR with friends for a CookWell Party!),

or Cooking FOR You, with Personal Cheffing, or On-Site Catering.

I’ve been teaching whole food cooking on California’s Central Coast for 12 years now, and I’d love to show you how to bring joy & mindfulness into creating d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s, whole foods dishes brimming with seasonal veggies, proteins, good fats, and minerals for the whole family!

For 23 years now, I’ve studied the ancient diet & lifestyle philosophies of Macrobiotics, Ayurvedic cooking, and Solar Nutrition. So, I’d love to help you individualize your diet for your unique body type according to these philosophies, AND, as your Nutritional Therapist, I’d love to help you discover any nutrient deficiencies you may have, such as important food-state minerals, omega 3 fats, probiotic and prebiotic foods, all types of fiber through whole foods, re-mineralized drinking water for better hydration, etc…

I’d love to support you in your gentle transition off the foods that may not be serving you, to the foods that give you long-lasting energy and true vitality, and foods that act as preventative medicine. Creating custom meal plans and recipes for you is a fun with so many possibilities for flavors and nutrient-rich foods to satisfy both your body and your spirit!


I can share with you valuable information such as:

* ingredients to watch out for in packaged foods

* foods that are warming to the body and foods that are cooling

* great ideas around easy breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners

* how to eat and cook with the seasons for personal balance all year round

oh yeah!

I’d love to teach you to use a food-mood journal to help you become more aware of your emotional drives so you can re-program yourself around food.

And of course, as your CookWell Coach, I can show you how to create delicious ensembles of the whole foods that are best for your body type and nutrient needs, including tons of veggies, and possibly even sprouted and simmered whole grains, beans, protein foods, cultured/probiotic foods, as well as fantastic combinations of herbs, spices, and natural flavor elements you may not have even known existed!

It has been a total joy making new friends with this right-livelyhood…

I look forward to meeting you !
