                        Tel Aviv, Israel
                        Nutrition Therapy

                        A wellness warrior, passionate foodie, environmental enthusiast who has been working as a functional medicine and culinary nutritionist for over 15 years.

                        Read More

                        After being diagnosed with not 1 but 2 Autoimmune diseases – I felt my life slipping out of control. I was told by Doctors that I never would lead an “optimal” life and I had to adhere to the strictest of diets in order to maintain balance and function.

                        For me – life without enjoying the pleasures of food was not worth living – so I set out on a journey of healing – and my life long love affair with food took on a whole new dimension.

                        Through Functional Medicine, which evaluates the root cause of disease, I realized that food can be a healer, more than just nourishing our bodies, feeding our minds and soothing our souls.

                        I have created the ultimate formula for balancing your nutrition in a way that is both delicious, easy and accessible to all. Wherever you are, whatever your constraints – we will crack the code for the optimal menu for you.

                        I have consulted some of the largest organizations all over the world (McKinsey, Google, Amazon, Paypal and more) and seen the profound impact these small yet significant changes can make.

                        To me – food is life, food is love, food is what connects us as a people and as a culture.

                        And especially now, with a Pandemic affecting pretty much every region in the world – we have a shared challenge and a shared mission – stay healthy, stay well, stay connected.
