good witch kitchen is run by me, Kristen Ciccolini, and I help busy women incorporate healthier habits into their everyday cooking for optimal physical and emotional wellness.
I focus on a whole-foods, plant-based diet in my personal life and with clients. This does not necessarily mean I avoid all animal products or think you should either – I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all regimen; veganism works for some bodies, not always for others. The bottom line for everyone, I do believe, is plenty of plants in the diet and to eat high-quality, organic foods when practical and possible.
Why should you trust me?
I understand the struggle. Most women have had a strained relationship with food at some point in their life, and I have been through all the calorie counting apps, measuring every last ingredient, restricting my meals, being unhappy with my weight, shape, and habits as far back as middle school. Through my own personal battles I’ve developed coping mechanisms and learned how to improve my relationship with food and fitness using a holistic approach. Our environment matters, and I want to help those dealing with the same issues to lead a happier, healthier life in mind, body, and spirit. I am also a certified Culinary Nutrition Expert!
What’s with the name?
Witches are healers, and that’s what I’m here to do – provide health-supportive guidance for you to feel better in your body.
Since I made the decision to lead a healthier lifestyle, I’ve learned so much about health and wellness, nutrition, and our food industry in my CNE training and beyond that I want to share with you through articles, recipes, meal plans, cooking classes, workshops, and more. Education is imperative to living a truly healthy life, and I have experienced first-hand how easy it can be to incorporate what you learn into your everyday routine; I hope good witch kitchen will give you the tools you need to make positive changes in your lives and in those around you.
