Christine Altounian

Food for Life Instructor

Christine Altounian works to break down common misconceptions that vegetables are bland or boring. As a certified natural foods chef and Food for Life instructor, she is dedicated to preparing fresh, organic foods to satisfy all palates. Christine teaches people how to easily incorporate more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables into their diets and make small, but lasting, lifestyle changes to increase energy, control weight, improve digestion, and reduce risk for disease and chronic illness. In 2011, Christine experienced health issues of her own when she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Not wanting to depend on medication to merely mask her symptoms, she has managed to control her illness through a low-fat, plant-based diet and healthful lifestyle choices. Realizing the true power of food to hurt or heal, and how your relationship to food can be shifted in an instant, Christine is dedicated to teaching others how to take their health in their own hands.
