    Brooke Ali

    Brooke is the author of Vegan20 and the Food as Medicine Five Day LIfestyle Plana vegan restauranteur, chef, certified nutritionist, educator, and Hashimoto's survivor. She cured her Hashimoto's disease with a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle.  She started out sharing amazing vegan food by hosting cooking parties with friends, which turned into cooking classes, then restaurant pop-ups, to eventually a vegan restaurant.

    Brooke is the co-founder of GreenSpark Market which is a community collective event featuring and supporting green, sustainable and/or vegan businesses.  

    She is the co-founder of the VIRTUAL Food As Medicine Summit & EXPO event which featured world-renowned nutrition experts, health & wellness exhibitors, and local wellness practitioners to share the state-of-the-science on health and nutrition and the practicalities and life-changing impacts of using food as medicine.

     

    Brooke has partnered with Dr. Patricia Thomson to create Wellness20 that focuses on a global approach to the power of healing foods. Brooke is now thrilled to share her experiences, nutritional expertise, recipes, and secret hacks from owning a restaurant, with people around the world.
