Mrs. Pleasant Teaches Healthy Cooking And Wellness

By S. Mathur

Food is medicine, says Emily Amarnick, Holistic Health Coach and Personal Chef, aka Mrs. Pleasant.

She came to her calling as a holistic health coach in stages, beginning with a happy childhood in Philadelphia. Her family nickname was Mrs. Pleasant, and she chose it for her lifestyle brand that helps turn the kitchen from a place of anxiety and frustration to one of health and healing. Amarnick learned healthy cooking by way of The Moosewood Cookbook and the world of raw vegan food in Brooklyn. After earning her certification as a holistic wellness coach at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, she moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and decided to share her love of healthy eating, connection and teaching cooking classes.

Mrs. Pleasant offers both personal and group cooking classes. Amarnick goes above and beyond cooking instructions to advise clients on clearing the clutter in their kitchens and lives.

"I customize my cooking classes for each student," she said. "Some students want to focus on quick healthy meals, others want more involved dinner ideas. No matter what they're looking for, they leave each class with one or two new healthy energizing recipes they can incorporate into their daily or weekly schedule."

Clients can choose three or six month wellness coaching packages, which come with an initial in person or zoom consultation, one cooking class per month, a Customized Action Plan, unlimited email and text support, and a grocery store tour for those in the Albuquerque area. The six month program includes a kitchen revamp session and two follow up consultations as well. Plant Based 101 teaches clients how to incorporate more plant based meals in their diet in just four lessons. Classes can be in person or online.

As a bonus, the food is delicious as well as healthy, appealing even to children who refused to eat vegetables before. Clients love the fact that they can cook delicious and nutritious meals for themselves and their families and friends.

"I love the look on my clients face when they create that first meal, after thinking they could never cook," she said. "I also love getting to know my clients and guiding them to a more healthy vibrant life. Small steps make a big difference over time."
