LINDSAY KEACH, MS, HC
Lindsay developed a love of cooking and eating fresh, local whole foods at an early age, cooking with her mother and grandmothers on the Kentucky Farm where she was raised. When she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2001, this passion developed into a tool for healing. Lindsay discovered first-hand the powerful nourishing and regenerating potential of diet and lifestyle: truly putting into practice Hippocrates maxim “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. She believes that what you eat can change your life. Lindsay is committed to helping others find out what true nourishment means for them, both on and off the plate, and wants to improve the health of Americans from all walks of life.
After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from Stanford and spending many years as a designer and Art Director in corporate America for companies like the Gap and Wired Magazine, Lindsay developed an intimate understanding of the challenges that passionate, busy people face, and specializes in helping them to cultivate work/life balance and find time to integrate healthy food and lifestyle choices into their hectic schedules. She is also committed to providing holistic and nutritional support for a variety of gastrointestinal and autoimmune conditions and food allergies.
Lindsay has a Masters of Science in Nutrition from Bastyr University and is a certified holistic health coach through a joint program with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Teacher’s College of Columbia University. She is a member of Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine workgroup. Also an avid yogi, Lindsay completed an advanced yoga teacher training with Karl Erb in 2006 and a Bhakti Flow teacher training with Rusty Wells in 2008.
She volunteers for and has served on the leadership advisory board of NextCourse, a non-profit organization that aims to improve the health of youth and disenfranchised populations through educational programs that inspire people to cook and eat healthier, sustainable foods.
In her free time, Lindsay can be found traveling, studying, meditating, practicing yoga, biking around town, ogling produce at the farmers market, connecting with kindred spirits, hugging her kitties, reading in the sunshine, writing, or rocking out while testing out new recipes on her sweet (and patient) husband.
Lindsay’s enthusiasm for delicious, seasonal, healthy food is both boundless and contagious. She is absolutely in love with her job and with joyful, balanced cooking and living. She bows deeply to her teachers, without whom this would not be possible.
