It’s time to take control of your health

Doctors want us to be well, but they don’t always know what’s best for us. The USDA and pharmaceutical companies certainly don’t know what our bodies need. Our food supply has completely changed in the last few decades and we’ve never been more unhealthy. It’s time we rediscover the power of Real Food to nourish our bodies so we can live full, active, pain-free lives.

We don’t have to live with these tragedies:

  • Autism, learning disabilities, hyperactivity or ADHD
  • Food allergies
  • Being unable to climb steps or get out of a chair
  • Expensive prescription medications with a long list of side effects
  • No energy or sex drive
  • Infertility
  • Depression
  • Childhood obesity & diabetes
  • Expensive dental and orthodontic bills

Your family deserves excellent health.

Real Food is the Answer

We have the power to turn this around with traditional foods that have nourished families for centuries, before degenerative diseases were the norm. I can help you go back to Real Food and change your family’s future.

What are people saying?

Amanda from OhAmanda.com: “I love your blog — it’s like my encyclopedia for real food!!”

Jimmy Moore from the Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb blog: “If you have not seen the KellytheKitchenKop.com blog then you are missing out on one of the premiere bloggers on healthy cooking, traditional foods and really all things related to nutrition and health.”

Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife: “I can’t recommend this class highly enough. Of all the “real food” blogs I read, Kelly’s is by far the most down to earth and relatable. If you’ve been wanting to take a class like this, but you’re not sure you’re ready to jump into real food with both feet, or you’re not sure you have the time to commit, this is the one I would recommend. I took it the first time around, and I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of information she shares.

Kelly does extensive research, she takes things one step at a time, and she’s always great with feedback when you have questions. Believe me, I’ve asked her so many questions over the past year, I’m surprised she hasn’t blocked my email address! But instead, I always get a thoughtful, informed reply within 24 hours. I don’t know when she sleeps.”

Comments & reviews about the Real Food for Rookies class:

“Since I’m not completely new to real food, a lot was info I am familiar with, but there was just as much I hadn’t heard because I’m not fully immersed in WAPF yet. I found it all wonderful and a great refresher! It supplied tools, too, to share with my sister, SIL, and daughters. As I skimmed over the lesson I thought maybe I’ll take a little today, then the rest tomorrow. But I was hooked, couldn’t stop! Thank you, Kelly!!!”

“I just spent about 2 1/2 hrs on the first class info, videos, and audio..and can I say, I have hit the WOW factor! So many things said and written have been what I have been searching for for months now. I have a friend who is on track with all this great stuff and where she is in her life and food style to me just seemed unreachable! But now thanks to her and YOU KELLY, I see I can someday be where I want to be!! THANK YOU!!!”

“I am loving the class. I am a registered dietitian practicing in Los Angeles and this is far more helpful/useful than many of my undergrad courses. In fact, it makes me a little upset that I learned many “nutritional concepts” that were so backward over the last 10 years!”

“I just wanted to say that your course has been more helpful than you can ever imagine. Having all the information in one place makes everything so much easier, especially as a busy new mom.”

“I’m already looking forward to next week’s class!”

“This is like a dream come true. We are all eating better, loving what we eat and everyone, for the most part, stays full between meals. I am spending less but getting more in terms of nutrition, and I can’t believe I am losing weight! The more good stuff I eat the less I want the yucky stuff I used to eat, so I’m losing weight even eating butter and frying foods occasionally. THANK YOU KELLY for sharing this with us!”

“I just have to say thank you Kelly for this marvelous class!!! It has been so inspiring and helpful… beyond words truly. Also, I so enjoyed all your videos – doorbell and phone ringing, and all!!! It made it REAL, as well as entertaining! LOL!”

“Just wanted to tell you how much I really enjoyed your class and I learned so much!! I have been studying nutrition for the past couple years and really found a lot of interesting sites and info to share from your wisdom! Thank you! I love all your recipes, they have been a big hit with my friends and family, and I am losing that last little baby bump fat with no effort! I will definitely pass it around, it has been such a blessing to my life!”

“Real Food For Rookies has been foundational in my journey toward nourishing food. Not only does Kelly educate with facts, articles, videos, etc., but she also brings very practical application to that knowledge. I was able to make immediate changes to our weekly food shopping, school lunches, dinner recipes and much more. Kelly was also extremely helpful answering more detailed questions that I sent her. I would recommend this class for anyone who cooks, anyone who feeds a family or for anyone who just wants to get more nourishing Real Foods into their life. Thank you, Kelly! It has been a pleasure.”

“One of the best things about your class was the fact that I didn’t have to be there at a certain time. I never would have been able to complete it if I hadn’t had the freedom to stop and research things and tend to family needs before picking up again a week or so later. I think the course shows you put a lot of work into developing it. The scientific data is really what sells the whole idea (at least for me), so that was probably the most important aspect of the course in terms of influencing us to make changes. Thanks again for taking the time to put all this together for folks like me who have been muddling through w/o a lot of facts or solid scientific basis for dietary decisions. I think you’ve done a very good job of breaking this huge topic down into doable steps for someone just beginning on this path. I really appreciate your efforts and the impact it’s made on my family. Thank you for the encouragement that we might be able to undo the damage already done.”

“Kelly gives the best customer service EVAH. Not only was she EARLY with each teaching class, she also personally answered questions on her blog. She provided us with great information but wasn’t intimated by people who may know more than she did, in fact many times I saw her pick their brain to the bone. Kelly’s pride was never in the forefront; getting us the best, more current information was her #1 priority each and every time. She also provided us with many resources, which was especially helpful to a newbie who doesn’t live in an area where sprouted grains, etc. etc. are common items. I know I will be referring back to these courses for the next couple of years, they are packed with that much information! SO WORTH the money!”

“I took this class and learned so much! I couldn’t believe some of the things I thought were healthy were really toxic (skim milk, low-fat dressing, cereal) and a waste of money. Kelly covered everything, and there are links if you want to dig further on a topic. Honestly, this was the best money I’ve spent in a very long time. Good health is priceless, and the Real Food class was the start of that good health.”

The first few FAQs here are actual emails I’ve received along with my replies, after those I’ve included questions that I thought might be helpful to cover…

Q:  I’m interested in your class “Real Food for Rookies”, however, I’m due with my 2nd child soon and don’t see how I will have the time. 

A:  You can watch/read/listen whenever you can make it work, it’s on your own schedule!

Q:  I wanted to know when the classes are and how long they will last?  Do I have to be there live to watch them or can I watch anytime?

A:  They’re all recorded ahead of time so you don’t have to be there to see them or listen live.  🙂  You can click in to watch/listen/download/read the materials whenever it works for you.  Hope that helps!

Q:  I’m afraid to ask this question, but here goes…  I am considering taking the rookie class. Here’s the deal….I’m a terrible cook! I wish I wasn’t but I am.  I want to feed my family healthy foods but I’m even terrible at the yucky American diet – I’m not even good at the junk, much less healthy stuff.  Is this class helpful to people who are terrible cooks? I mean I need 4th grade girl basic!  Also, we live in a rural country area and the only local grocery store is Wal-Mart. We have a few farmer’s markets, but I don’t think any are organic. It is about a 60 to 90 mile drive to get to a city with a variety of grocery store options. Will this class still benefit me with only a Wal-Mart?

A:  Wow, you are so cool for being so honest and open!!! I would LOVE to help you!!! Here’s the deal, if you take this class I would ask you to email and ask ANY question that you need help with! I will answer your questions because I want this class to be helpful for the super beginners! If I forget something very basic in a lesson, I hope you’ll ask so I can cover it all!  Sometimes when I’ve been doing something so long, I forget how it was for the beginner, but I’m REALLY going to try not to do this.  As far as your Wal-mart question – my main concern is meat, but if you can make the drive to a good farm every so often and stock up, then you’ll be good!  And farmer’s markets have great local produce so that’s still better than any organic stuff you’ll find at Wal-mart.  I don’t want to overwhelm you, that’s the whole point of this class, so I hope you’ll sign up so I can help you with anything you need to be able to wrap your brain around all this – you’re a great Mom for wanting to do the best for your kids and I know you can do it! I’m a flop at a lot of things, too, so you’re in good company. 🙂

Q:  My daughter has severe allergies to all dairy, all grains (except rice) and peanuts/nuts.  Also allergic to several other things, coconut for one.  Can I still benefit from the cooking class with so many “handicaps” in the kitchen?

A:  Wow, that must be so difficult feeding your daughter with so many allergies!  As a side question, have you ever tried the GAPS Diet for her?  (Here’s a good starting point to read more:  Gaps Diet for Rookies.)  Many have been healed of their food allergies with this diet.

Anyway, only part of my class includes actual recipes, most of the class is about how to find Real Food, what that means for our health, how to figure out what to believe, how to read ingredient labels, what to ask at the farm, and other stuff like that.  For the recipes, I’ll mention substitutions, plus you may already know which substitutions work for your family.  So yes, I think this class would still be great to help you learn all the basics, even if the bread and dairy class may be hit and miss a little as far as what you can use there.

Q:  What if I’m not a rookie?

A:  You could still benefit because we can all learn something new by watching how someone else does things in their kitchen.  Also, it can help you get out of a cooking rut that we all get into at times.  OR, you could use the class to learn more so you’ll know how to help someone along in their real food journey.  Lastly, sometimes we have been doing something for so long that we forget why. This would be the perfect refresher.  🙂

Q:  Do I need any special equipment or ingredients?

A:  This class is meant to teach you the basics and how you can incorporate these Real Food principles into your life.  I don’t want you to stress about any of it.  Watch, read, learn, and ask questions when needed, and then make your plan as far as how you’ll go forward from there.  You don’t need to buy anything ahead of time.

Q:  What kind of time commitment will this class require?

A:  Each class will vary from 45 minutes to 90 minutes or so to get through all the materials.  (Some classes have more audios or videos than others in the interest of keeping the content organized and where it flows the best.)  Keep in mind though, that you can watch/read/listen to everything in the class whenever works best for you!

Q:  What if I have more specific questions?

A:  You can ask me anything, anytime, and I’ll respond as soon as I’m able.  If I don’t know the answer to your question, I often post it on Facebook, so others can help us figure things out!
