What Is The Green Palette Kitchen Philosophy?

The philosophy of the Green Palette Kitchen is to make healthy cooking clear and easy to understand so it doesn’t feel like a chore.  Knowing what and how to eat is one thing, knowing how to prepare healthy foods to make them taste delicious is the missing link. The Green Palette Kitchen covers all that for you.  Eating healthy means embracing a high plant, low processed foods diet.  We emphasize an abundant amount of seasonal vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and healthy proteins.  The words anti-inflammatory, power foods and delicious are common language in our classes and we show you how to incorporate only the best, most nutritious foods into your everyday diet.

What Past Students Are Saying…

“I’m consistently impressed with Heather’s professionalism and attention to detail, not only as a chef but also as a nutritionist. I love the cooking classes. There is a great mix of learning, demonstration, discussion, and tasting. I always come away with fresh information, new cooking skills, and tried, tested healthy recipes that I put right into the rotation. Heather’s enthusiasm is contagious – I am enjoying cooking more! Heather’s soups are exceptional! We had two family members going through major medical treatments and Heather’s nutrition-packed, delicious soups were a wonderful gift for them. Everything is thoughtfully planned and well prepared.”

“It is so very rare to find in one person a master chef dedicated to organic foods and healthy living, combined with her expertise as a top quality educator in nutrition for kids, adults and people with medical conditions. As both a nutritionist and a chef, Heather Carey is a one stop shop for anyone looking to learn how to eat, learn how to cook deliciously healthy foods and gain the tools needed to take control of your health and wellness through food.”
