Born and raised in Israel, I grew up on a Middle Eastern diet, which means a lot of fresh salads, hummus, rice and lentils with your meals. It all started when I was about 13 and I had the biggest crush on actor named River Phoenix who was a Vegan, so what does a silly teen girl do? She copies her idol and stops eating meat. I was a vegetarian for well over 20 years but I still had a big sweet tooth and couldn’t give up my craving for chocolate and sweets. I knew at a young age that I didn’t like to eat animal products but I didn’t know then how eating healthy, less processed food can change the way you look and feel so much. Struggling to maintain my fluctuating weight and having low energy and fatigue, I discovered that eliminating eggs, honey & dairy my diet completely allowed me to maintain and lose weight without restriction. Being the food lover that I am - I decided to help others on their own journey through healthy eating and cooking so I rolled up my sleeves, made a big fun mess in my kitchen and became a certified plant-based chef and vegan pastry chef with Rouxbe cooking school (yes, I still enjoy my sweets). I’m here to help guide and inspire you on your plant-based health journey. Whether you’re new to the vegan lifestyle or you are already a vegan who wishes to try new tasty foods, I am always happy to hear from you and share my tips and experience. I promise you it will taste so good - your family won’t even tell that it's vegan! I am also the organizer of the Lancaster Vegan Meetup Group, which is a great place for like-minded people to learn more about this lifestyle. I am available for group and private booking of cooking lessons and demos. Contact me for details and availability.  
Most importantly, I believe that no matter what your goals or obstacles, you have the power to change your life and change how you look and feel just by making better lifestyle choices.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website. I’m thrilled we’re connected and I’m excited to hear from you.

With all my love, XO, Gili
