In spite of all the fad diets, all studies indicate that the Mediterranean Diet is the most healthy, you have just found the Italian Grandmother you've been looking for! A well balanced diet is easily maintained once you learn the basics of what is good2eat4U.
Let’s begin with Italian parents and grandparents that grew their own food and passed on a love of real, organic, foods that was part of the culture before industrialized food started to make us sick. Knowing how to choose your ingredients is the first step.
Being born allergic to dairy (we’re all lactose intolerant once we have teeth), and having to learn what foods best serve your body for it to serve you is second.
Being a single mom and career woman with limited time is third.
Getting hired as a Private Chef for focus group taste-tests and meals for major food company clients, came next. Cooking in a break room with only portable burners was part of the challenge.
Introducing gluten free dishes on the clients buffet table, and those being the most often requested for recipes resulted in my writing down the recipes. “What is gluten and why do we have to be free?” was followed by their own GF produce lines within months.
Developing over 600 recipes that were gluten, dairy, sugar and salt free for actor/producer/director Bradley Cooper came next.
Studying nutrition, with the latest scientific information regarding macro and micro nutrients and getting Certified with Distinction led me to being the Nutritional Advisor and Chef of a luxury rehab center.
Being Certified as a Trainer for ServSafe and a restaurant consultant evolved into Inspector Good working with Gordon Ramsey to safely donate food to charities and as a witness for Guinness World Records.
Working as a Lead with the staff and children and their families at The American Girl Café, conducting events and being the Allergy Expert on staff came next.
Being a healthy food advocate; nutritional advisor; recipe developer and cookbook author; cooking instructor ties right in to the passion my parents and grandparents instilled in me and that I, in turn, share as much as possible.
HERBLENDS make you a great and confident cook with the wave of your hand.

My first hands on wellness workshop with Elaine was awesome! I cannot believe how much ground we covered and I already feel more accomplished in the kitchen and moving into a healthy lifestyle. l am going to make a chicken today -- and visit the local Middle Eastern market to get inexpensive flours for my gluten free diet.
In just a few hours, I learned so much about
• making food more flavorful
• great shortcuts that I am already using
• measuring dry ingredients with my hand -- so that I can be one of those cooks who nonchalantly tosses ingredients into the pot
• flavor profiles
• best places to buy organic food at the lowest price
• nutritional needs
• strategies for weight loss
I cannot wait until our next lesson!
Elaine is the best! Oh -- and she is loads of fun to boot!"
Joining the good2eat4U program with Elaine has changed the way I think and feel about food and the effects it has on me.
Since starting the program with Elaine 4 months ago, I have lost 25 lbs and gained so much understanding and knowledge about food and how my body reacts to it. Elaine educated me on foods that are good for my body and gives me the education along with it so whenever I want to eat something I am conscious of how my body will react to it and how good it is for me.
I never feel deprived of any foods. I feel energized and more confident and walk more proudly because I feel so much better.
Elaine is so encouraging and helpful and my lifestyle has improved tremendously since starting this diet and way of life with Elaine. I look forward to keep excelling with the help of Elaine and feeling better every single day.
I have tried other diets but was never able to stick to it In the past when I cheated it would take me months before I get back into diet mode but with Elaine it never feels like I’m doing something wrong by eating anything. Elaine also has amazing recipes which includes all the foods and drinks I love. I am so grateful I met her.
Elaine has changed my life so far and it only keeps getting better. Every visit we go through my food intake, she adds things I may like and enjoy and is very encouraging. With Elaine it’s not really dieting it’s a way of life!!!! Looking forward to posting my new update in a few months from now.
Update: I have lost 45 lbs and I continue to feel better and better. Her text messages and our face to face time have kept me on track, although I'm 3,000 miles away.
You are the go-to person for everything involving gluten, sugar, and dairy free eating. You were a godsend when you cooked multiple meals for me for three months while I was recovering from surgery. I found your knowledge in the area of nutrition and gluten, sugar, and dairy free eating unparalleled and your food delectable. It was always a treat to discover what enticing meal you made me. The variety was amazing, and I'm certain eating your meals helped me recover faster. You have positively affected my eating habits. I look forward to trying more of your recipes which are so well thought out and easy to follow. I can't tell you how grateful I am to you.
