I’m Barb Kemp, creator of the course. I’m a food educator with over 15 years of experience teaching everyday home cooks, and an enthusiastic home cook. I get very excited talking and teaching about all things food, healthy eating and cooking.
One of the biggest lessons I've learned is that many home cooks, want to menu plan, get organized with their daily cooking so they can prepare healthier meals for their families in less time and with less stress. However, they’re unsure where to start and lack motivation.
Which is why I've created these online courses. To motivate and inspire parents to cook, and have success in their own kitchens. To teach how to get organized and cook healthy meals so you can have the healthiest family possible.
My love of food and cooking began in my twenties when I was told to become vegetarian for health reasons. The problem was I liked meat and potatoes and didn’t really know how to cook. I ate whatever I wanted, including takeout foods filled with sugar, salt, and fat. Embracing the challenge, I learned to cook. Then I started to add veggies and whole grains into my diet and discovered a whole new positive lifestyle change.
Later, when I became a mom, one of our children developed a food allergy and all meals had to be made from scratch. I struggled at first, but once again welcomed the change and learned to menu plan. It was a game changer.
Eventually, I switched careers and started writing a Newsletter, blog and teaching about healthy home cooking, meal planning and fresh whole foods to everyday home cooks.
