Hi, my name is Dorit Palvanov,
a wife and a mother of two young girls (4 & 6 years old), a registered holistic nutritionist specializing in pediatrics and family nutrition. I’m also known in my community as “The Ingredient Lady”, now you know why
For the past five years I’ve been immersed in the world of nutrition and healthy eating and coached countless families on the topic of family nutrition and kids’ nutrition. I noticed over and over again that most families are feeling confused and overwhelmed with regards to specific products they purchase for their families, cooking with healthier ingredients and the cost of healthy living.
To clear some of this overwhelm I started inviting moms into my own kitchen and showing them first hand how I do it, how I set up my kitchen, which ingredients I use and which are my most trusted brands. And this is how I was turned into “The Ingredient Lady” as people started asking me questions regarding specific products, ingredients and brands and more and more moms insisted on seeing how I do it in my own home.
Prior to meeting with me, some moms were anxious, irritated, confused and deflated. For whatever reason they had a picture in their minds that eating healthy is hard and very expensive, and basically will never happen to them. They were certain that kids won’t eat the “healthier foods” and that without support they cannot do the change. However, after seeing how another mom does it, all of a sudden they felt like it is not so hard - It is actually possible and it doesn’t look hard at all!
I’ve designed a 6 weeks transformative program which is designed to take you from having no clue about healthy eating to replacing the unhealthy ingredients, to then incorporating the higher quality products in recipes and your daily life.
I have an understanding of what certain food do for our body and I purchase much more of those healthy foods. I read labels to see the ingredients contained in the food.
I buy many more vegetables and fruits and have them pre-cut or washed so they are available to eat.
I purchase more natural foods (ie. raw honey) and make many more foods at home now myself instead of store bought!Mandy Greenspan
I completely changed my whole outlook on food and nutrition. I have learned the difference between “real” food Vs “plastic” (processed) food. I have stopped buying anything processed and only buy natural non-processed foods now. I have no issue with my kids going into my pantry since all of my snacks are nutritious and do not have processed sugars, salt, preservatives or dyes in it. My house does not have any pop, chips or sweets and kids know they can only have these things occasionally when we go to birthdays or events and therefore rarely ask for it at home. My son, who was very hyper, is now much calmer and performs better at school and home. My husband and myself feel much less bloated and healthier.Irit G
I liked that the information and tips that you provide are never pushed or meant to scare. You understand that family life is hard and try to present easy, simple steps to making healthier choices.Jacky Nissanov
The program’s length is six weeks and it is designed to take you from the very beginning all the way to a fully stocked up and functioning kitchen which you can use to create wholesome meals which will nourish you and your family. My main goal is to educate and coach you so that you feel empowered each time you go shopping. I want you to know exactly what to choose and what is the reasoning behind this particular choice.
Here’s a detailed breakdown of the program:
A year and a half ago I had a consultation with Dorit Palvanov about how to stop my son and I from getting sick, how to establish healthy habits for both of us, and how to transform what I thought was healthy cooking into truly healthy cooking. I stuck with all her recommendations and the results are amazing! As I get to know her, I continue to be inspired by her dedication to being a healthy mom who is raising a healthy family. The most important job a mom has is being a mom, which means taking care both of yourself and your kids. Everything else is secondary.Julia Pronin
So How much does the Kitchen Makeover Program cost?
An initial consultation with a nutritionist is usually between $65-95 per hour, and after that they will put you through a coaching program that might cost between $600 to $1000, depending on the length of it.
For my private coaching programs I also charge similar amounts and the reason for this is the time I spend with each client individually.
I wanted to create something different for you.
A program you can do on your own pace, on your own time, while cooking or driving in the car and learning along the way. In this way you will save a lot of money and can achieve the same results!
That’s why I charge only $97 for the entire six weeks and you have an access to the program for a full year!
I remember myself about six years ago stepping into the health food store with a long shopping list, excited to replace all the crap I had at home with better quality ingredients. I was pumped! Really excited!
But, in the end I spent six hours familiarizing myself with the new and weird products, a full cart and a HUGE bill! I actually had to put some stuff away just so that I could pay for all of this. Thinking back this was a very silly idea, as I didn’t take into account the cost and was mostly emotional and irrational in my reasoning.
But don’t worry this will not happen to you!
I’ve built the program in a progressive way that will help you manage the new costs. Each week you will have an action task following the classes which will require you to shop for the better quality kitchen item. That way you will not have to pay for everything all at once.
