Where Culinary Innovation & Health Research Combine©

Consultation services are offered to help in the prevention of chronic inflammatory diseases and to maintain a healthier culinary lifestyle.*

America Has a Health Crisis:

Heart disease, cancer and diabetes

A recent report of the Institute of Medicine (May 2012) concluded that:

“Two-thirds of adults and almost one-third of children in the United States are overweight or obese, representing young and old, urban and rural, and majority and minority populations. This epidemic of excess weight is associated with major causes of chronic disease, disability, and death. Obesity related illness is estimated to carry an annual cost of $190.2 billion.”

Heart disease, cancer, diabetes and even obesity are linked to a diet deficient in phytochemicals. We help put these phytochemicals, and the delicious flavors that come with them, back into everyday eating.
