Dietary & Lifestyle Consulting
Erik Walnum holds degrees in Hotel Management and Culinary Arts. He began his career in hotels and fine restaurants in Boston, MA. He was quickly noticed and invited to work as a private chef and has since travelled extensively while cooking for his clients.
Over the years Erik has gained an appreciation of the deep connection between food, nutrition, and healthy living that sets him apart from other chefs. He studies and continues to learn about this important connection, and he has earned a certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell’s Center for Nutrition Studies. Erik spent over three years mastering the Orthodox Kosher kitchen and then reinventing it from his non-traditional perspective.
Every meal Erik prepares radiates with vibrant, positive, energy that aims at healthy outcomes. And he works with local dietitians, nutritionists and physicians to build custom meal plans, menus, and lifestyle plans to address specific needs.
