Meet Dani

Hawaii girl turned Iowa woman. Wife. Mom of five and triathlete turned healthy cooking coach. Dani loves teaching others how to prepare tasty real food on a daily basis. Her relaxed approach to cooking helps set others at ease and encourages them to jump in and have fun.  Dani’s mission is to gather people around the table, first to show them how delicious real food can be and then to provide a space for genuine connection with others. 


Great atmosphere.  Liked the way she asked questions and everyone had a chance to answer.  It wasn’t just her giving the answers.  Everyone’s input was very helpful.  She had great experience as a stay-at-home mom who looked for a healthy path for her and her family.  I like how she went about it.  She’s taken nutrition classes and is now sharing her knowledge with us.
