I started my whole food, plant-based lifestyle in 2010 by completing our community’s first Healthy Eating Adventure (HEA) at Mercersburg, PA. By modifying my eating habits and exercising regularly, several health issues have been resolved and one sidebar is that I lost weight! No more meds!! I have been able to easily maintain this lifestyle and related good health over these past five years. My philosophy is to make back-to-basics cooking FUN!
On this lifestyle journey I have worked with the HEA team as a coach, education coordinator and presenter. As a plant-based cook and food coach, I develop original recipes – they have taken me to the finalist competition in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Pennsylvania Vegetable Cook-Off. As a spin-off I have published an e-cookbook, On Target with COACH BJ, which emphasizes nutritional easy-to-make recipes. View coachbj.com for details.
Earlier careers include teaching college and owning e-commerce businesses. Today, when I’m not cooking, you can find me in my studio designing and stitching contemporary art quilts.
Join Coach BJ’s team and go for the green!
