Chef Carly Paige – Making a Difference in People’s Lives with Holistic Cooking!

Meet Chef Carly Paige, a health coach, a cook book author, and someone who is passionate about wellness and bringing people together around the kitchen table! Whether teaching “one-on-one” in workshops, or “reaching the masses” through online cooking classes, her main focus is to teach people how they can make better, healthier choices through simple changes in the ingredients they use in their own food preparation.
