The three-week 90/10 reset program was a game-changer for me regarding nutrition, energy, weight, and lifestyle. Ellen held me accountable for accomplishing my goal of rehabilitating a sugar and carb addict. The vegetarian recipes were delicious and filling. Ellen was a great nutritional coach during the 21-day program checking in weekly via cell phone, generating recipes, and sharing motivational antidotes a few times a week via email or cell phone. I finally started cooking for Darcy instead of Team Paul/Darcy. Highly recommend Ellen and 21 Day Reset 90/10™.
I was bloated and had gas issues. I also couldn't sleep at night without taking a sleep aid. I decided to try ChefEllen's RESET 9/10 program. I learned which foods to eat and when to eat them for good gut health and found it worked. I completed the three-week program and feel great! I highly recommend giving her program a try.
Working with Ellen has been a tremendous experience for me, and in turn, I can bring this knowledge to my family. Not only have I learned how to cook great meals, I have absorbed the progress of shopping and prepping for maximum efficiency. This, in itself, was extremely valuable for me. I've often felt overwhelmed with walking into a supermarket, Ellen made this much more comfortable and less daunting. Her methods and overall navigation of supermarket aisles result in the most productive time spent. From the supermarket, we brought our purchases into my kitchen and prepared nutritious food for several days. Learning trade secrets from a professional chef has changed the way I view, shop, prep, and cook meals. Her efforts are exceptional. Ellen brings informative results in enjoyable ways.

About me

My major focus is on optimal gut health. When our intestinal cells aren't healthy, the imbalance opens the door to many common issues such as sugar cravings, skin issues, malabsorption of nutrients, hormonal problems, stress, migraines, exhaustion, and auto-immune disease. If you are feeding this bad bacteria with the wrong foods and not eating in a more relaxed state, inflammation takes over, elevates these issues, and opens the door to more disease.

It is built into our DNA to heal. Our immune and brain health starts in the gut. Our gut is the epicenter and understanding the impact undigested foods will have on your overall health is vital. www.gottagetgut.com www.chefellen.com

My Philosophy of Care

My own health issues, the importance of becoming my own advocate, self-care, and understanding the mind-body connection.
My reputation as a healthy private chef has led me on a unique path to explore many dietary theories. I am not one to believe in the one size fits all mentality. After 20 years in the food industry helping clients eat better, I decided to take my education a step further and focus on the individual as such. Who knew my first real client would be myself?

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Your health history is our first step, and vital for me to support you on this journey. Questions and answers from this short personal history will give me vital information on our first steps together. From here, the healing begins. I will hold you accountable for your goals, but I need your dedication and commitment.

My Inspiration

Self-care not only requires food, water, and exercise. I learned this the hard way. I thought I had it all figured out with food and exercise but my health took a turn. It's not just about the food on our plates. A well-rounded human being needs quality time spent aligning their overall spirit, eliminating stress, finding joy, and holding onto happiness.

Working with Ellen was a definite eye-opener. Her knowledge and passion regarding gut health is evident after just one conversation. She really takes the time to get to know her clients and introduces many options to fit the ever changing schedules that exist. You will quickly fall in love with her calm demeanor, constant reassurance and encouragement. I really appreciated how Ellen always took the time to explain the science behind 90/10. You never feel alone in this process as she schedules weekly calls to discuss how the week went as well as setting goals for the week ahead.
Thank you for my 21-day journey to reset “me”...so grateful for your organized plan, healthy samples, and positive approach...more than an understanding of plant-based...eating to nurture me and to rid myself of the unhealthy cravings...turning discomfort into growth...a gift everyone should give themselves.
I have suffered from horrible migraines for the past twelve years, and I have taken a ton of medicine and supplements. Unfortunately, non of this has proved to alleviate the pain. I think the biggest thing I learned from Ellen is to listen to my body; it has the answers. I am the only one who truly knows when I eat something, how it makes me feel. This knowledge carries over into all parts of my life, not just my food. Ellen has helped me look at food in a new way. It's not just filling me up, so I'm not hungry, It's a source of nutrition, and it's my own body's medicine. I've learned food can be a tool used to starve harmful bacteria, such as Epstein Barre. I now look for food that is not processed but made with whole ingredients. I HATE to cook, and Ellen gave me easy options, a food list, and the best brands to buy. That was a huge help. I now read all food labels and google what I don't know. Ellen kept the program exciting throughout the three weeks; she was regularly sending me information and recipes to keep me excited about feeding my body good food. I am so grateful for Ellen's knowledge and passion for helping me feel my best.
I have known Ellen for years as a friend and client. From her extensive background in cooking and nutrition, I developed an interest in her program RESET 90/10™. Her youthful mindset, dedication to her lifestyle, and knowledge of working with the whole-body mentality piqued an interest. I wanted in. The word “diet” was not something I wanted in my life. In the last several years, chronic stomach bloating, gas, irritability, anxiety, sleepless nights, and inflammation controlled how the day would unfold. As the lifelong dream of mine started to unfold and a fitness center I partnered with was about to open, the opportunity to work with Ellen presented itself at the perfect time. Ellen helped with keeping goals manageable. She brought a new awareness of the benefits of plant-based foods for me, specifically. This journey started five weeks ago, and I never looked back. Ellen has been there every step of the way with weekly meetings, quick tips if needed, email support, valuable information, and amazing recipes. Since completing the RESET 90/10 program, this newly attainable lifestyle is here to stay. The bloating, gas, irritability, and sleepless nights are in the past. The anxiety is also completely gone, as is the inflammation. Workouts have become smooth and effortless as the joint pain that held me back, no longer exists. I am grateful for this new way of life Ellen has introduced. I am also confident that these changes will assist in living my best life. Robyn (PURE IMPACT fitness)
Ellen worked with my family for many years. She was such a joy to have around. Her meals were always very healthy while still remaining delicious. She is very passionate and she takes great pride in her work. I believe Ellen has a gift. Not only is she an amazing chef but she is also an amazing person. I am so grateful for the time she spent with my children, introducing them to healthy foods and better snacking options. Ellen is someone that I will always call on when I need any catering done for small dinners or large parties. She always has great ideas, takes the initiative, and gets it done.
The three week reset 90/10 program was so helpful to me. I lost the bloated feeling I always have had. It made me realize foods that truly effect me, especially dairy and gluten. I thought I would miss certain foods and at first and it was really an adjustment for me. After two weeks something clicks in your head it really is a reset. Now that I am on maintenance I have incorporated some foods back into my diet but I would say I still only eat plant based foods 5 times a week. I feel better, have more energy, my skin is clearer. Ellen's recipes are delicious, healthy and filling. I really have enjoyed making them since I do love to cook. She is extremely knowledgeable about health and nutrition. I enjoyed speaking with her weekly and the articles she would send me were so helpful and interesting. I am grateful to have been through her program it really has changed the way I eat. She has been a wonderful health coach. Can't wait to do more courses with you! Trish C
Thank YOU for organizing and developing RESET 90/10™. I'm sure when you see/hear results, this is your inspiration to keep educating others. I can't tell you how much I love my mornings and look forward to the new routine. It's interesting how your body adapts/changes within the first week, and I didn't feel like I was sacrificing or depriving myself of what I used to love. After 21 days, it was as if my body was saying, "Ah, thank you, I'm happy now." I now understand that excuses aren't an option! Much of what I used to eat constantly will now be in moderation, and I pay better attention to my body's responses to what nourishes me. I can never thank you enough time for your coaching, education, support, emails, phone calls, positiveness, recipes, and instruction on being aware of my body signals. You've developed a unique and inspiring life-changing program that, I have no doubt, will spread rapidly!! The Maintenance Program is also outstanding. I am embracing the transition, delicious recipes, and all my new lifestyle changes. Thank you for continuing to inspire me. I am forever grateful. XOXO
As someone who has struggled with digestive issues for most of my adult life, working with Chef Ellen helped me manage my issues better. Her tasty recipes never left me feeling like I was missing out on yummy foods or tasty treats. She also offers such incredible support. Her knowledge and laser-sharp focus with me personally had me confident that she genuinely cared. I highly recommend Chef Ellen and can see anyone benefiting from the 90/10 reset and maintenance program to refocus your relationship with food and nourishing your body. Food can heal us!
