                                                                                                 Reimagining Food: A Journey to Thrive 

Welcome to a culinary adventure where food is not just sustenance but a celebration of life. I am Nina, your host to a plant-based lifestyle that's not

only delicious but  transformative. My mission is to inspire and liberate,

showing you the vibrant world of plant-based living. 

From my early days in the kitchen with my parents to becoming a

professional chef, I've cultivated a deep love for crafting plant-based

delights. Food is more than a meal; it's a pathway to well-being. 

Awards like the grand prize in the Health Care Culinary Contest

and the Food Literacy Center accolades in 2020 and 2021 validate

my commitment. I am not just a chef; I am a storyteller, using my

culinary accomplishments to champion accessible, fresh,

and whole plant-based foods. 

Having served as a guest and lead chef for events across the country,

often standing as the lone plant-based chef, I confidently represent the

diversity and richness of plant-based cuisine. My culinary journey reached

new heights when I was invited to curate the first-ever plant-based menu

in the history of White House State Dinners in 2023. This milestone

underscores my unwavering commitment to expanding the reach of

plant-based cuisine, making it not just a choice but a celebration of

flavors andvalues that stretch deep and wide. 

Join me on this journey, as we explore the richness of flavors

and the vitality of a plant-powered life. Together, let's make

every meal a testament to living not just for the moment but

for a healthier, more vibrant future. 

Thank you for being part of the 'Food To Live For' community!
