Monica Corrado, MA, CNC, is a traditional food chef, holistic Certified Nutritional Consultant, member of the Honorary Board of the Weston A. Price Foundation and professional member of the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. Monica’s primary intention is to inspire people to well-being. She does this both in her private practice and her Cooking for Well-Being classes. Monica is passionate about teaching people how to cook nourishing, traditional food as well as providing them with resources and tools to do so.  She has been on public television speaking on the issue of children and nutrition, is involved in the White House Chefs Move! to Schools initiative and was featured on the front page of the Washington Post Food Section in September 2010 for her fermentation classes in Fermentation: A Wild Way to Make Food Come to Life! as well as numerous other newspaper articles.  Monica has been involved in the sustainable and local food revolution for over a decade, and her organic catering company catered some of the first Wise Traditions conferences.  She taught the all day cooking seminar on traditional diets at Wise Traditions 2010 and 2011, and acted as liaison between the Weston A. Price Foundation and the chefs to coordinate the food preparation and meals for Wise Traditions 2011.  Monica is an adjunct professor teaching traditional foods preparation in the Masters of Science in Nutrition and Integrated Health at Tai Sophia in Columbia, MD.  Monica just published her first book, with Love from Grandmother’s Kitchen: Traditional Cooking Techniques for Well-Being.  She has taught hundreds of people how to cook nourishing, traditional food over the past 6 years.  Let Monica teach you, too!

In Monica’s private practice, she helps people come to balance and works with them to clear the cause of any symptoms or dis-ease in the body. It is her joy to help people see the connection between real food made well and good health. Monica loves to work with moms and parents and all those who work with children, to educate them on how to nourish and grow a healthy child. Much of her work is with children with AD/HD and Aspbergers, on the Autistic Spectrum, or with allergies and other health issues. She also works with those with fertility issues and “failure to thrive” diagnoses. Her intuitive insight often provides the missing piece on a client’s journey to well-being.
