Shelley Alexander has enjoyed a lifelong love of delicious, locally grown, seasonal foods. She received her formal chef’s training at The Los Angeles Culinary Institute. She is a certified healing foods specialist, holistic chef, and owner of the holistic health company, A Harmony Healing, in Los Angeles.
Shelley believes that one needs to eat in a holistic, natural way that nourishes, strengthens, energizes, and helps heal your body while working for your individual lifestyle and health goals. What this way of eating should consist of is an abundance of fresh, seasonal, nutrient-rich, sustainable, local, organic whole foods that are a great pleasure for you to eat. These foods should be produced in a way that supports your health and the environment. She claims that once you begin to eat in this holistic way, constant hunger, overeating, and intense cravings will no longer be an issue, as your body receives all the nourishment and nutrients it needs to feel completely satisfied. You will no longer want to buy or eat highly processed foods that have chemicals, artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, genetically modified ingredients, unnatural fillers, high heat extracted, hydrogenated, or chemically processed vegetable oils, artificial and refined sweeteners, refined grains, and factory-farm-raised animals that have been treated poorly and fed unnatural diets. When you eat these unnatural types of foods, you will not provide the nutritional foundation you need to achieve and maintain vibrant health.
