Real Cooking to Teach at Wild Oats

August 1, 2005

Santa Monica, CA – Real Cooking is pleased to announce that it has been invited to teach an ongoing, monthly cooking class at Wild Oats in Santa Monica.

"It's a perfect match. You could even say that our business has its roots at Wild Oats," says Victoria Bloch, co-founder of Real Cooking and local chapter leader of the Weston A. Price Foundation. "After all, we've had chapter meetings here for years, and it was our involvement with the Foundation that inspired Hollie and me to start Real Cooking."

Hollie Greenwood, Bloch's partner, agrees. "This is a great opportunity to take our message to a larger audience. People who shop at Wild Oats already have a commitment to their health, and we can assist them in taking that commitment to the next level."

Classes will be held one evening a month in the store's community room. While initial classes will be limited to cold items, Jim Price, the store's enthusiastic marketing manager, will be enhancing the room in the months to come, enabling more complex food preparation. For Real Cooking's creative duo, this doesn't seem to present a problem.

"We actually regard it as an exciting challenge," says Greenwood. "After all, we teach our clients how to cook in their own kitchens, and they're not always the best equipped! This is an opportunity to show people how much can be done, even with limited equipment."

Bloch agrees, and adds, "Since it's summer, our first class will feature some wonderful chilled soups. We'll then follow it up the next month with salad dressings and baking with alternative grains. The new cooktop should arrive just in time for some wonderful fall soups and stews. It's going to be a lot of fun for us, for Wild Oats, and for the people who attend our classes!"

Real Cooking, a multi-faceted nutritional coaching business, serves individuals and families who believe that a wholesome, balanced diet is an essential component of health and well-being. With a full range of complementary services, the company offers one-stop shopping for the individual or family wanting to bring balance to their eating habits.

Real Cooking Opens for Business

January 2, 2005

Santa Monica, CA – Victoria Bloch and Hollie Greenwood are delighted to announce that they have launched Real Cooking, a multi-faceted nutritional coaching business, serving individuals and families who believe that a wholesome, balanced diet is an essential component of health and well-being. With a full range of complementary services, the company offers one-stop shopping for the individual or family wanting to bring balance to their eating habits.

"While nearly everyone says they would like to eat better, very few people know how to take that first step," says Greenwood. "Real Cooking was created to help people make the transition to a whole foods way of shopping, cooking and eating significantly easier."

The partners plan to work with clients in a variety of practical ways to help them get past any obstacles that might stand between them and healthy eating. According to Greenwood, "We'll clean out their pantry, take them shopping, provide nutritional coaching, teach them how to cook, create meal plans and shopping lists, and strategize ways to get fresh food on their table even when schedules are hectic. And if they need to have food provided while they're in transition, we'll cook for them, too!"

Bloch concurs. "If Hollie and I can eat three delicious, nourishing meals a day, with our busy lives, anyone can! We want to bring common sense back to cooking and eating. Let's face it, there are so many diets on the market, each claiming to be healthiest, it's no wonder people get confused. What I love about our approach to nutrition is that it's not based on theory, it's based on the way healthy people actually ate, and thrived, for centuries. Eating fresh, whole, unprocessed foods is the most natural, delicious way to maintain your energy, your weight, and your health."

In addition to her partnership in Real Cooking, Bloch is also a chapter leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism (www.westonaprice.org). She speaks regularly on topics related to health and nutrition, and is furthering her knowledge of nutrition through ongoing studies at Hawthorn Health and Nutrition Institute.

"We've both seen the positive changes that resulted from following the Weston Price guidelines in our own lives," says Greenwood. "And we've seen the same kinds of changes for others as well, that's why we're so inspired to take this message to our clients and their families."
