Hi, I’m Lisa

Let’s cook real food! When did it become okay to feed our kids chemicals? Yes, your kids will eat real food, they show me in class after class that they LOVE REAL FOOD. And they don’t want to eat food dyes! It might surprise you, but after these kids learn about food dyes and the alternative to use “super-food-coloring” they say no to chemicals in their food!

I’m Lisa Jendza, and in my years of speaking and teaching to highly educated audiences, the confusion remains over what is healthy. For the record, I do not endorse (or believe) in one “diet” – as there is no “one-size-fits-all” diet.

I use yogic principles and an elimination protocol when I coach my clients to guide them back to their innate wisdom; the wisdom of their body. There is far more confusion when one is relying on “experts” outside of themselves .My teachings of holistic health and nutrition follow yogic principles, starting with ahimsa, or “non-harming.” Similar to the Hippocratic Oath taken by physicians to “first, do no harm.”

It seems so simple, yet somehow we forgot. Regardless of how we got here, it is time to course-correct. Change starts in the kitchen!

The philosophy that this program is built on is that with courage, confidence and creativity, kids will learn not only how to cook, but how to take care of themselves, and learn to critically think!

It takes courage to get in the kitchen and try new things. With practice comes confidence. And creativity is the ability to “think outside the box” (quite, literally, in this case)

Freedom Kitchen is a place to gather, to nourish and to love. And this kids’ cooking program was created with all my heart, from my kitchen to yours.
