Joanne Gerrard Young is an international chef, holistic nutritionist, health educator and mother. She is a leader in the organic and non-gmo food movements. Her mission is to teach people that healthy food can be delicious and fulfilling and to raise awareness of the amazing healing, clarifying and energizing powers of whole organic foods. Her desire to help people reconnect to the source of their nutrition and heal their bodies by feeding the microbiome is contagious. Joanne is excited to teach parents and caregivers how to eliminate high allergen foods and create delicious nutritious foods that children will eat and enjoy.
Joanne has been working in the culinary arts and holistic nutrition fields, sharing the delicious simplicity of healing with whole organic food, for over 20 years. She has gained fundamental healing experience and knowledge working closely with naturopathic doctors, herbalists, alternative healers, doctors of Chinese medicine and leaders in the culinary field.
In 2012 Joanne was hailed Master Raw Food Chef by Viktorus Kulvinskas co- founder with Ann Wigmore of the Hippocrates Institute. She has a way of weaving the energetic and life filled foods into the common diet plan. Although Joanne is not a “fully raw” chef it is with great honor and inspiration she receives this title and has truly enjoyed the ability to integrate more living foods to her highly plant based repertoire of recipes and to become a part of the movement towards a more compassionate planet.
Joanne is thrilled to be studying to become a functional medicine practitioner as it is the leading edge in scientific research into human physiology that will tie together all of her knowledge and intuition about healing through food.
Joanne’s classes, chef services and cleanse programs have been sought after by celebrities from actors, supermodels and photographers to CEOs, professional athletes musicians, producers and anyone wishing for positive change in their lives. Joanne is the personal plant based chef to Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady in Costa Rica.
