My Health Mission

Having worked in the medical field as an EMT and Emergency Department RN for the past 20 years, I have come to believe that a whole-foods, plant-based diet and lifestyle modification are the keys to prevention, management, and treatment of our most common diseases. The mission of Nurse In The Kitchen is to re-connect  medicine with nutrition and educate and empower people to take control of their health through safe and natural methods. I am passionate about educating health care professionals about the life saving power of nutrition so that they can change the lives of their patients for the better. As Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said, "Let thy food be thy medicine." 


Experience and Professionalism

Eden holds a B.A from Connecticut College, and is completing a Masters degree  in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University. She has been in the medical field for 20 years, and works full time as an Emergency Department nurse.


What I Do

I believe in healing the whole person (body, mind, spirit), so my approach to health is holistic and plant-based. I provide private nutrition and lifestyle education and coaching  on all health concerns, with a focus on detoxification, clean living/eating,  and what I call "The Deadly Triad": diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. I also offer in-home cooking education, and month-long health "boot camps" in which we intensely tackle a health issue together for a set period of time. Check out my Facebook page for weekly plant-based recipes and health alerts! Consultations can be provided in person, by phone, or using Skype.

"Are you a Registered Dietician?" No, I am a Registered Nurse with training in Holistic Nutrition.

"Are you a Registered Dietician?"

No, I am a Registered Nurse with masters-level training in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University. Holistic Nutrition differs from dietician training in that it focuses on whole foods and using food and herbs for prevention and treatment of illness. I am less concerned with the specific amounts of calories you are consuming, and more concerned with the quality of the foods you are eating and the spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of your life that also affect your health.

"I don't know how to cook. Can you still help me?"

Absolutely! I love to teach people how to cook simple, healthy meals and prepare their kitchen for healthy living. If you need a recipe for a specific type of meal, I will find it for you! One or several of our sessions together can involve setting up your kitchen, grocery shopping for healthy products,  and cooking together.
