Andrea Potter

Andrea Potter is a classically trained Chef and a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.

Her love of nutrition and organic, whole foods and healthy lifestyle brought her to Radha Yoga and Eatery; a culinary vegetarian hot spot in Vancouver, where she was the head chef for over 3 years. While at Radha she studied at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, graduating as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist in 2009. This is also where she started bringing her knowledge of nutrition and food to the public by teaching healthy cooking classes.

Through her business, Rooted Nutrition, Andrea teaches healthy cooking classes and offers one- on-one nutrition consultations, helping her clients to integrate healthy and delicious foods choices into their lives.

Her cooking classes pair sound nutrition information with whole foods- based, beautifully prepared recipes. Cutting the confusion about nutrition and food, these classes empower the students through education and practical culinary know-how to live well by eating well and by bringing creativity and joy into their home kitchens.

Interactive and fun; Andrea's classes convey her love of real food, community and culture.
