We all know a bowl of Doritos is anything but healthy, yet it’s hard to resist the temptation. Even though you might later regret munching on it, you will probably do it again next time. Even with information regarding the disastrous implications unhealthy food can have on our health, we’re inclined to think more with our buds and less with our brains. Cristina Curp is a nutritionist and magician chef who believes we can satisfy both.
She is a chef, author, military spouse, and a first-generation-American born in Miami grateful for living the American dream. Cristina believes it is her life’s purpose to help others, as her personal story is a manifestation of the love and support she garners from the people who have made her remarkable journey possible. Working in the food and wellness space for over 10 years she is passionate about bridging the gap between nutritional science and culinary execution.
A firm believer in food as medicine, Cristina dealt with the autoinflammatory skin condition, Hidradentisit Suppurativa, with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Her goal is to educate people on the connection between what we eat and how it impacts our health, especially autoimmune and autoinflammatory conditions. She has authored bestselling cookbooks, and the reception has encouraged her to continue writing as she plans her third book and the launch of the first of multiple condition-specific courses for Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS).
As an admired chef and author whose delicious recipes are helping people feel better, Cristina believes healing through food doesn’t have to come at the cost of compromising taste. The Castaway Kitchen is a growing online community where Cristina helps people with autoimmune disease and autoinflammatory skin condition Hidradenitis suppurativa feel nourished and supported via educational content and anti-inflammatory healing recipes.
In the wellness market, many people know a lot about food or nutrition, but you don’t often meet a health coach or nutritionist who is also a professional chef. Cristina is known to combine the why with a very delicious how. She is also a mother, so she understands how important it can be to ensure the food isn’t just healthy but makes you lick your fingers. In her own words, “All the nutrition information in the world is useless unless people can put it into practice, and that happens in the kitchen.”
