Elaine Jumes

Food for Life Instructor

Elaine Jumes

Concerned with the alarming rise in diet-related health issues in Sheboygan County, Ms. Jumes promotes healthy eating by offering nutrition education and cooking demonstrations to her community. Her classes are based on the latest evidence-based scientific research. Per Sheboygan County’s 2020 Community Health Survey, nearly 75% of adults are overweight or obese, and diagnosed diabetes has increased from 5% to 14% in less than 2 decades. It doesn’t have to be this way. Most of these chronic diseases are preventable and, in some cases, reversible through diet and lifestyle. As a licensed Food for Life Instructor from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), she is constantly rewarded by her clients’ results, seeing first-hand how they reduce their diet-related chronic diseases through diet and lifestyle changes.

The originator of KINDCooking, her cooking classes exude the meaning behind KIND, making cooking Kind-hearted, Inviting, Nutritious, and Doable! Ms. Jumes brings her plant-based prowess to Sheboygan County’s community as the owner and creator of Farsighted Foodie LLC. Elaine has been plant-based for over 20 years and knows, first-hand, how the food we eat today will affect our physical, mental, and emotional future.

In addition to being a Licensed Food for Life Instructor with PCRM, this “Farsighted Foodie” is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach with a Plant-Based Nutrition Certification from the Center for Nutrition Studies (CNS) at eCornell. She also holds eCornell certifications in Wellness Counseling and Food & Sustainability.

Elaine enjoys bringing people together for group seminars and/or one-on-one consultations. Her PCRM Food for Life classes include practical cooking tips, delicious and healthy recipes that can easily be made at home, and specific information about how certain foods work to promote or discourage disease.

Just as passionate about life as she is about her food, when she's not hiking the Wisconsin farmland with Greta Garbo, her dog, she enjoys yoga, cooking (of course), and reading John Sanford and Lee Child novels.

Serving cities and surrounding areas of Southeastern and Central Wisconsin.
