Stefanie Sacks has taken her knowledge and skills as a professional chef with a Masters in Nutrition to a new level. As a culinary nutritionist—a credible professional who marries cooking with the science of nutrition, she facilitates food lifestyle change through personalized nutrition therapy and culinary guidance. Central to Stefanie’s work is educating people about nutrition through hands-on experiences with food— learning how to shop for and prepare food is paramount to understanding how to eat healthfully.

Marti Wolfson brings a wide range of passion and experience to the table from the integrative health and wellness field. She is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, has continued her education on how to use food as medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine and the Center for Mind Body Medicine and is now completing her Masters of Science in Nutrition. She has been working independently and alongside Stefanie for years. Marti was the founding Culinary Director of BlumKitchen and contributed recipes to Dr. Susan Blum’s The Immune System Recovery Plan: A Doctor’s 4 Step Program to Treating Autoimmune Disease.

 

One on One

The goal of One on One is to prevent illness, manage health and restore wellness using personalized nutrition therapy and culinary guidance. We partner in your care with your doctor, clinical dietitian or other healthcare providers to offer you the most comprehensive edible wellness program possible. Tailored to meet your specific needs, one on one is suitable for adults, children and families. 

Initial Evaluation & Food Counseling
The consultation takes place in the comfort of your own home. In this two-hour session, we aim to understand the following about you:

  • Your goals and objectives
  • Your health history
  • Your food intake
  • Your relationship with food
  • Your culinary knowledge/capabilities
  • Your kitchen set-up/equipment
  • Your current food and food product choices (a peek in the pantry, fridge and freezer)

Collaborating with you to create a program that meets your specific needs is our goal. Within a week post evaluation, you will receive a comprehensive e-mail follow-up that will outline your Culinary Rx (aka Plan of Action). It could include the following additional service suggestions:

Shopping Education
Over 15,000 new food products are introduced per year. In addition, the media offers an abundance of conflicting information about what is healthy and what is not. Thus, it is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate your way through the maze of food and food products in the grocery store. In a private 90-minute tour of a local supermarket, your personal questions and concerns will be addressed, you will learn about the better for you alternatives, and become an overall more conscious consumer.

Hands-On Cooking Instruction
In the comfort of your kitchen, you can learn how to cook more health supportive cuisine with expert guidance. With the knowledge gained from the Initial Evaluation and Shopping Education, we will create a Program Menu with recipes tailored specifically to meet your needs.

A La Carte Kitchen Nutrition Tools
Menus and Other Food Guides
Oftentimes, menus and other culinary guides whether shopping lists, restaurant menu guidance, traveling food cheat sheets or recipes are incredibly useful tools to facilitate the transition to more health supportive edibles.

Follow-Up Sessions
We aim to give you guidance and then set you free but if you need regular follow-up sessions, we are here 1-2-3. Whether email, phone or face to face, we will happily and graciously guide you.

Pantry Rehab
If you aren’t up for a do-it-yourself pantry rehab after your Shopping Education, we can give your larder a makeover by tossing the bad and bringing in the better. Maintaining your food choices but replacing what you have with products of much higher health integrity is our goal.

Private Chef Services
Aligned with highly skilled culinary professionals educated at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, we will help match you with the appropriate chef who can cook for you daily, weekly or monthly.

Culinary Nutrition Workshops

Everyone needs an edible awakening! A workshop, using hands-on experiences with food as the center stone of education, can be designed to meet your specific group needs whether in your home, at a school, corporation, health conference, wellness center, resort or spa.

Culinary Nutrition Consulting

In an era where companies are trying to do better with their food products, Stefanie’s passion, expertise and extensive knowledge of the food and agricultural industries combined with her years in the health and wellness field offer her a unique skill set to be able to help companies do the right thing for their consumers.

"I have known Stefanie personally for many years. She had an incredibly positive impact on my husband's wellness when he was ill. In response to the need to educate people on a much larger scale about the role of food in healing, Stefanie created Food Solutions hosted by my foundation, Urban Zen. Simplicity is critical to understanding how to prepare health supportive foods and integrating these changes into one’s daily life to meet specific challenges. Stefanie achieved this with Food Solutions. She not only inspires others, but has a unique ability to empower an audience."
