How to transform your health with Chef Cynthia Louise

November 8, 2019

BIOGRAPHY

Hello! I’m Chef Cynthia Louise. I’m a publisher, co-author of 3 international bestselling cookbooks, with Dr. Libby Weaver;  REAL FOOD CHEF, SWEET TOOTH STORY & REAL FOOD KITCHEN… I’m super proud to work alongside this incredible human who has taught me so much when it comes to how we absorb food.

For years, I have worked in exclusive Health Retreats where I was limited to the number of people I could support. And now I can through 4 different online cooking classes where I guide you 24/7 in your kitchen from mine to create meals that serve your organs and ultimately give you a deep understanding of how good does matter.

I have a Cooking Retreat called NOURISH, it’s a 5 ½ day hands-on cooking retreat. The retreat is designed to give you great insight on the importance of ingredients like good fats, legumes, vegetables, nuts, seeds, spices, herbs and how to use high mineral salts in cooking. All while using plant based ingredients and becoming more comfortable in the kitchen, making it a less stressful time and more of a nourishing time. The skills, techniques and recipes you will learn are for life.

The retreat is spectacular and is for all ages.

I’m also the creative food director of the global brand GENIUS CAFE, building 50 cafes worldwide. It's a joy to train the next generation of chefs on how to look after themselves and their customer’s ultimate health with what they are serving on the menu.

I am an international speaker and presenter on wholefood cooking and eating the way nature intended us to be when it comes to living a thriving energetic life.
What makes me crazy is all the confusion out there about what to eat! I want to bring some clarity and realness to your table. I’m a working mum, wife to Scott and a businesswoman. I know how hard it is to find the time to nourish ourselves and our families.

I am here to give you everything you need to make your own extraordinary everyday food, from scratch, using real ingredients.
I share this knowledge with humans all around the world. Real people. Real ingredients. Food as nature intended. Food is such a special gift, and I love its ability to bring people together and to nourish us on all levels – I love it!

I am a big supporter of women's health, gut health and well-being through the way I teach about cooking and eating (taking the bullshit out of eating really).
I work alongside Tyler Tolman in his health programs and retreats educating people on making epic dishes from plants that support their ultimate health and taste amazing.
Well, that's me.  I can't wait to meet you.
Chef Cynthia xx

BIOGRAPHY

Harvee’s first business was at 12-years-old, mowing neighbourhood lawns. Five years later, at age 17, Harvee had saved enough and bought his first investment property.

As a numbers person, Harvee believes that family is number one. His mission is to create a business that gives him the freedom to always put family first and to help others do the same. In doing this, his mission to make a difference in the world will be accomplished
