Work With Me
I’m thrilled that you’ve found me! If you are an individual, a restaurant, or a company looking to prepare or promote allergen-friendly recipes, meals, or products, let’s work together!
As a Culinary Nutrition Expert, I enjoy the challenge of transforming recipes into healthy dishes that will be perfect for you, your family, or your customers to enjoy.
Fresh is Real is a blog that promotes mostly plant-based cooking and all recipes are completely allergen-friendly.
I utilize many healthy, organic, GMO-free, fair trade, and gluten-free products in all my recipes.
- Fruits (fresh and dried)
- Seeds (chia, hemp, sunflower, pumpkin, etc.)
- Flour/grains (brown rice, millet, sorghum, teff, oat, etc.)
- Coconut (milk, water, chips, palm sugar)
- Natural sweeteners (maple syrup, honey)
- Chocolate (allergy-free, vegan, dark, raw cacao)
- Vanilla (beans, extract, powder)
- Tea and coffee substitutes
Do you a have a product to promote to the world of healthy eaters? Tell me about it! As long as it is natural, low sugar, and free of the top allergens, I would love to know more. Please note that I don’t cook with corn products, or legumes as they are also very problematic ingredients with people with living with food allergies and sensitivities.
Working with freshisreal.com would be an opportunity for your products to get included in many new recipes, shared on the blog, and promoted on various social media platforms.
Nothing is more frustrating than going to restaurants and having no safe options to eat.
With a phone, Facetime, or in-person consultation, I can help you by suggesting safe allergen-friendly options for your establishment.
There is a huge rise in allergies and food sensitivities. People will stop going to restaurants if they can’t find safe meal options.
Gain some new customers
Creating delicious and healthy dishes that everyone can enjoy could help your restaurant maintain and gain some new customers.
Wouldn’t it be great to promote menu options that are free of all top allergens, and experience the positive impacts it could have on your business?
Create easy-to-read allergy guides
As a professional graphic designer, I will help you create a document, poster, or handout that your customers can reference to help them choose safe meal options. This process can be time-consuming but worth the extra effort for any business that sells and prepares food.
Grocery Store Tours
If you are in the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area I would love to host a grocery tour, either one-on-one or for small groups.
Learning how to eat safely can be scary at first, but it’s easier than you think.
Ideally, you want to shop in only a few areas of your grocery store. The fresh produce section, the health aisle, and maybe just one or two more areas of your local store.
Avoiding processed foods is a must. Doing so will reduce your risk of consuming questionable ingredients. When in doubt, don’t eat it!
Are you a teacher and would love for me (Chantal) from Fresh is Real to visit your classroom to have a chat with your students about healthy eating?
Check out my Creative Workshop for Kids. For the teacher, parents, and students, professionally designed handouts were prepared to help spread the word about healthy eating.
For small groups of adults, I can organize customized workshops.
Classes on fermentation (how to make Kombucha, Cultured Vegetables, or Kimchi), gluten-free vegan bread baking, raw and vegan cooking, transforming recipes into healthier versions (without allergens), are some examples.
Healthy Eating and Cooking Coach
As a Culinary Nutrition Expert, I will help you decipher your health diagnosis (or lack thereof), with an actual healthy food plan and nutritious meal suggestions.
With my guidance, either by phone or in person (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area), I can answer your questions about food products, and suggest safe alternatives.
It is important to note that I am not a medical professional. I will never help diagnose anyone with health issues. I am a Culinary Nutrition Expert that can suggest what to eat, and how to improve symptoms with healing foods based on your doctor’s findings.
Let’s chat! I would love to hear from you!
