Hi There! Welcome to Cleverly Nourished!
My name is Chef Michaela and I am a Hollandaise Sauce enthusiast, Nutritionist, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Grad, and Tahoe Native. I love to be in the kitchen spreading my love for cooking and foods that nourish the body and soul.
Even as Nutritionist I truly believe that a “Cleverly Nourished” life can still involve life’s pleasures, including chocolate lava cakes. Life is too short to deprive ourselves OR feel guilty about enjoying ourselves. Life truly is about balance, which can be achieved with quality ingredients and a focus on the foods that best serve us.
At Cleverly Nourished, we love to work with kids, adults, companies, and families! Along my culinary journey I was honored to mentor a young determined girl who went on to compete on Chopped Juniors on Food Network and Won! I have taught farm to table cooking classes for kids and families and developed nutrition and healthy lifestyle education programs for newly migrated mothers in low socioeconomic areas. I have also organized and executed corporate team building events for Fortune 500 companies including Oracle, Facebook, Abbott Laboratories, Visa, and Netflix. Who ever you are or what ever your experience is, we would love for you to be our next student in the kitchen!
I also had the opportunity to film a local cooking show with one of our chefs at Cleverly Nourished, Chef Lionel! The show can be seen on Channels 28 & 30 on MCTV! Check it out here!
Thank you so much for visiting Cleverly Nourished and we look forward to the opportunity of bringing beautiful nourishing and delicious foods into your life!
