This started with a simple desire...

I wanted to teach others how to maximize savoriness so healthy living could be sustainable and truly joyful.

Yet as I dove deep into the scientific literature, I learned that too much umami could cause chronic disease, as a result of excessive glutamate. (I'm so grateful I have a bachelor's degree in human biology and a master's in nutrition so that I could digest the science and connect the dots.)

As if the universe knew I needed to feel the pain personally, during this time, the excess glutamate I had built up led to anxiety, depression, and a total decline in health.

The setback fueled my passion for fully uncovering the power of umami...the good and the bad. As I learned more, I saw this wasn't my first time healing from neurotoxicity and was recognizing it frequently in others. Millions are affected by excess glutamate, but most people don't realize it, and those who do feel hopeless with no escape.

Fortunately, I found delicious solutions. Today I feel more vibrant than ever and I'm thrilled to share what I've learned through the Magic of Umami course.

Healing is not only possible—it's a journey back to your best self!

Past Students Loving the Results

I wanted to make this lifestyle change, but I didn’t know where to begin. By learning how to prepare savory plant-based dishes, I had no trouble transitioning because I discovered how flavorful and satisfying eating this way was. I am well on my way to reversing my diabetes and I have lost weight and look and feel better than I have in decades. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I've been WFPB for over 10 years. But I've eaten protein bars, and recently added hemp protein powder. The last 6 months my blood sugar has been creeping up, and I've been mystified as to the cause. After learning about refined glutamate, I stopped the protein powder. The next morning I had to check my blood sugar again and again...It was 92!! And it's remained in the low 90’s since.

- Susan Woodward

Your umami techniques are savory masterpieces that trick the carnivore into choosing WFPB nutrition—food as medicine, medicine as food. It is thrilling to learn how easily salt, sugar, and oil are healthily replaced—and never missed! My immense gratitude grows daily as I continue to learn how to easily throw together savory and scrumptious WFPB dishes that keep my community coming back for more.
