Tara Carpenter, NC.

Nutritional guidance for people on The Body Ecology Diet

I no longer offer a cooking service. Please consider hiring me to create a customized meal plan (recipes included) to follow or have someone prepare for you. 

Since 1996, I have been a Therapeutic Chef hired to prepare food that meets the dietary/health needs of each person I cook for. I love to set a table where everyone can enjoy a meal despite any difference in eating. 

Best of all, her dishes don’t leave me bloated like a lot of food. ~ L.F., Stowe, VT.

We each come “into” illness or a medical diagnosis or want to prevent a health relapse in our own unique way. I am here to listen and attune myself to what you need from a nutritional health perspective. My aim is to help you feel nourished from the inside out. If you have a terminal end-of-life prognosis, I cook more medicinally and can help administer ginger compresses and/or home colonics.

You are in good hands with Tara. ~ J.S., Worcester, VT.

Whole food is medicinal in nature and can bring minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, etc. into our human body. We all have a desire to feel good in our body in order to move through life with less effort and better health. Over the years I have come to see the body as a self-healing organism that can find a balanced state (homeostasis) when given the necessary tools..

My service is one tool to use as a holistic approach to seeking better health. Most people I cook for rely on food more than prescribed drugs which can come with side effects. This is not always possible.

Tara individualizes nutritional needs to the dot; without a doubt I recommend her as you convert to a healthy lifestyle while leading a busy life. ~ K.B., Montpelier, VT
