Here are some frequently ask questions we get about our workshops and cooking classes for companies. Click on each question below to see the answers:
Company health starts in the kitchen and with a healthy diet and lifestyle. No matter where your employees are in life, it’s always good to get inspiration on how to live healthfully. Many people need a reminder to eat better and take care of themselves, and our workshops do just that. By offering these special events to your employees, you show that you care about their wellbeing, and get the benefit of healthy employees and higher productivity.
We have a standard 1 hour workshop that includes a short presentation and a cooking demo but we can tailor the workshop to your specific needs. If you prefer to have just the cooking demo, or would like a tailored presentation on a particular topic we can make that happen for you.
With our standard Healthy Living Workshop you get:
- 20 minute healthy living presentation
- 20 minute cooking demo showing how to make one easy recipe
- 20 minute Q&A and tasting of recipe we make
We also have presentations on meal planning, fitness, and more so we are happy to create the workshop that your employees want. Also keep in mind that we give discounts for a package of 4 workshops throughout the year all with different topics and recipes.
Team building is an effective tool that companies use to bring employees together for a fun activity outside of work. Usually, these events require them to work together in new ways to solve a problem or in this case to cook a meal together. Team building is used to improve performance, build stronger bonds and friendliness amongst employees that may not know much about each other, help find solutions to problems, and to help build trust within a team.
For our team-building cooking classes, you get up to 10 members of your team together to cook a meal together. This class is hands-on and everyone gets to participate. Get in touch to discuss your cooking class today.

Here are just a few testimonials from my clients!
“As a vegan of four years (vegetarian for 10 years before that), I was initially interested in Wellness Reboot to help with meal planning. I was in a rut and this became a chore as opposed to something fun. I knew my way around the kitchen pretty well. So I only anticipated picking up a pointer or two, but I learned so much more. I found myself getting excited about new cooking techniques like using a pressure cooker and learning to cook without oil. The pressure cooker helped me save time and money (hello dried beans, goodbye canned beans). And the new cooking methods helped me make lower-fat dishes that didn’t sacrifice on taste one bit. I was hoping to lose a pound or two, but didn’t expect much. Boy was I surprised. There was something about the synergistic approach of this program that propelled me into high-gear. I began eating even better and got excited about working out, probably from a mix of having more energy and using the fun, yet challenging workouts that were included. By the end of the program, not only did I find myself 12 pounds lighter and 2 inches of my waist, but I also found a new passion for healthy eating and even began weight training. Hey, I had to do something will all that extra energy!! Thank you so much, Christy, for laying it all out and making it so easy and fun to follow this program.” – Darin C. (August)
“Following Christy’s fitness and nutrition program was the first time in a while that I had visible results from my efforts. The recipes were delicious and easy and satisfying. The workouts were easy to follow and challenging, in a good way! They really pushed me to try harder. I’m really happy with what I learned from Christy!” – Nanette L.
“The Wellness Reboot has expanded my capacity for creativity in the kitchen and helped me recalibrate my habits – letting go of those that no longer serve me and embracing those that energize. I look forward to continuing to be a part of a growing community of individuals ready to commit to their holistic health. ” – Leah L. (January)
“The Wellness Reboot was amazing! Love the recipes and love the workouts. The program teaches you how to shop and cook efficiently to maintain a healthy, plant-based, and tasty diet.” – Melissa Y. (January)
“Christy, I can’t thank you enough for this program! I am only on day 3 but already feeling so good with all the extra veggies, consistent protein, lack of caffeine, etc…And I am loving the exercise routines. I can’t believe I am saying that! But they are really fun and I feel so energetic right after.” – Laurie (July)
“WR has me trying new recipes that I would have probably skipped over in the past. It also has me faster in the kitchen. Being more efficient has led to more cooking at home, which has led to a huge decrease in our ‘eating out’ budget. I am excited over the fact that my addiction to sweets has lessened significantly – something I *never* thought would happen! I am also excited that the program has me moving again, something I have needed after several surgeries last year. I wanted to start the year with positive changes and WR has been the perfect springboard for doing so and as an added bonus, I’ve also lost weight. The only downside is I am running out of clothes to wear (being forced to give my old clothes away since they are now way too baggy!).” – Danielle B (January)
“My story began 1.5 years ago when I was tired of being sick and tired. I was on 4 prescriptions and the doctor wanted to add a 5th. I sought out the holistic practices of an acupuncturist who introduced me to juicing and then I found Christy at a yoga retreat. Christy’s food was so delicious that I attended her weekend retreat of cooking classes, which was the best decision of my life! Christy’s classes have literally been a lifesaver! I am down 50 pounds and I am no longer on medications!” – Marlene T. (cooking class student)
“Chad Byers is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about health and fitness. I have been training with him for just over a year and have lost over 50 pounds of body fat while increasing my strength each week. The workouts are always varied and he pushes me to reach all of my goals. Chad is really supportive and I leave each session feeling strong and determined!” – Tricia K. (trained by Chad Byers)
Those who choose to follow a plant-based diet consume a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as grains, beans and the like. Also, there is a focus on the consumption of fresh and/or minimally processed plant foods with a decreased consumption of meat, egg and dairy products. Such lifestyles can be referred to as vegetarian, vegan, raw, macrobiotic or nutritarian.
Sort of. We like the word “reboot” because this program gives you a new start. The program is designed to help you get off addictive foods that aren’t serving your greater health and well-being, so in a way you will be cleansing and may experience a detox depending on your current diet. However, there is no deprivation on this program. You get to eat plenty of delicious foods while learning the tools needed for continued success.
A desire to work hard and succeed in reaching your health goals.
A computer with a high speed internet connection.
Adobe Reader, Acrobat, or some other kind of PDF reader.
Adobe Flash Player or some other video viewer.
You will learn how to cook plant-based meals, how to live healthy and specific exercise routines that can fit into your busy life. You will improve your health and will receive the information and support you need to continue benefiting throughout your lifetime.
Everyone will experience different things, but you can expect to see these things over time eating a plant-based diet:
* increased energy
* improved skin
* better sex drive
* prevention and reversal of disease
* improved immune system
* better and stable mood
The program is a one-time program. The content, meal plans, and videos do not change, so unfortunately it doesn’t make sense to do the program again. However, at some point in the near future, we will have a monthly membership program where you can get new recipes, weekly cooking videos and Q&A sessions with me, and access to a private Facebook group for continued support.
You can join our monthly membership program for continued support and access to a private Facebook group where you can ask questions and share information with others. You will get special discounts for one-on-one coaching with me and discounts for future online cooking classes.
I want to/ need to avoid nuts, soy, oil, wheat, gluten, [fill in the blank]. Will this program accomodate my specific needs?
The recipes in the 28-day program are whole food based and 100% vegan. Many of them are gluten-free and soy-free, but not all. If you are avoiding certain allergens we can switch out those recipes for others or I can make substitutions. Please feel free to contact me and we can work to make changes accordingly.
If you are over the age of 18 you are eligible to complete the program. It’s never too late to reboot your health! If you are under 18 years of age you must get your parents or guardian’s permission.
All the recipes are easy to follow and the cooking videos show many of the cooking techniques used in the recipes. All you need is to buy the ingredients and be able to follow the recipes’ instructions.
If you find that cooking all your meals is overwhelming or you don’t have time to cook everyday you are welcome to make extra of the recipes you like and eat leftovers. You can also batch cook many of the recipes on your day off and store them in the fridge for later eating (though I don’t suggest this with the smoothies).
I have worked hard to create this program for a specific purpose and I make sure each individual gets proper attention to benefit from the program. The program is proprietary information (see Term and Conditions) so no sharing with anyone is allowed, however we gladly accept referrals. If you know someone that would benefit from this program please share the website with them, but not any of the material in the password protected section of the website. If cost is an issue for them please email me to discuss scholarship possibilities.
If you have a history of medical problems, please consult your doctor before participating in any program that requires changes to diet and lifestyle. We are not liable for any health conditions you had before or may experience during the program.
Please consult your doctor regarding medications. I am not a doctor so I can not advise you but discuss your progress throughout the program with your doctor to see if your medication can be reduced or eliminated.
Will the program help to lower my cholesterol and cure my heart, diabetes and other health conditions?
This program is designed to “reboot” your system and help you feel healthier, as well as adapt a healthier lifestyle. There is no guarantee that it will do any of the above, however taking part in this program should improve your overall health and well-being. If you continue to eat a healthy, plant-based diet and use what you learn in the program you may in fact be able to do all of the above. It’s been known to happen!
If you are following the meal plan and not eating unhealthy foods while exercising regularly, there is a good chance you will lose weight. I highly recommend you take your measurements before and after the program. Many factors contribute to the number on the scale so do not get discouraged if your weight fluctuates during the program.
Many people lose weight even after the first week of the program.
If I feel I am not benefiting from the program will I receive a refund or will my enrollment fee be prorated?
No refunds will be given as that is the case with digital products of all nature. If you sign up for one month and can’t do the program or need more time to access the materials just let me know and I will give you another month. Please see the “Refund Policy” section on the Terms and Conditions page for more information.
