After graduating from Cook Street School Of Fine Cooking in Denver, Colorado, I spent time working in restaurants and catering trying to figure out my place in the culinary world. In 2008, Dan, a regular customer at my previous restaurant, introduced me to Crossfit and I’ve been working out with Front Range Crossfit here in Denver ever since.
The new focus on fitness and nutrition I gained from Crossfit rippled down into my work life. I felt inspired to meld my passion for food with my new interest in fitness and nutrition. Thus, I began planning a personal chef service, The Primal Kitchen, where I could help Crossfitters looking to maximize their training and anyone else interested in eating naturally and healthfully. I wanted to learn even more about nutrition, so I went back to school and received my certification as a nutrition consultant: Holistic Nutrition Consultant (Certification)
With my new focus on nutrition, The Primal Kitchen evolved into Primal Nutrition by Karen, a holistic nutrition consulting business. I see clients for one-on-one nutrition counseling. I also am the Nutrition Coach at Front Range Crossfit and nutrition consultant with Paleo On The Go. Update: I now have a brand new website and name! GO PRIMAL by KAREN.
I am passionate about food and its critical role in our health and happiness. Please contact me for more information or if you have any questions. Thanks!
