Meet the Author

Christina Pirello, MFN, is one of America’s preeminent authorities on a healthier lifestyle utilizing natural and whole foods. The long-time award-winning host of her own public television show, Christina Cooks!, she is the author of several books including Cooking the Whole Foods Way, Christina Cooks!, Glow, Cook Your Way to the Life You Want, This Crazy Vegan Life, and I’m Mad as Hell and I’m Not Going to Eat It Any More.

 

At age 26, Christina was diagnosed with acute stage leukemia. The doctors gave her little chance of recovery -- and her options with conventional medical therapies were limited. But a chance meeting with her now husband Robert Pirello, a whole foods advocate, helped Christina change her lifestyle and diet based on healthy eating incorporating whole and unprocessed foods. Christina overcame the odds and in the process developed an expertise in cooking with whole foods.

 

Christina, who holds a bachelor and master’s degrees in fine arts and a master’s degree in nutrition, has studied traditional Chinese edicine, Ayruvedic medicine, and acupuncture. Since 1988, she has been teaching whole foods cooking classes and leading healthy lifestyle seminars in the U.S. and internationally. She is also a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and The Examiner and featured columnist for VegNewsNew Visions, First for Women, Natural Health, and Vegetarian Times magazines.

 

In 2008, Christina founded The Christina Pirello Health Education Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to changing America’s relationship with food, through community outreach and the media.  She works closely with the city of Philadelphia on various school and farm market programs.

 

Christina holds a faculty position at The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, where she lectures as a professor of culinary arts. She also serves on the board of The Farm Market Trust, The Green Council of Philadelphia, The Green City Youth Council of Philadelphia, and Chefs for Humanity Chef’s Council. She is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals and Women Chefs and Restaurateurs.
