Christina Pirello of Christina Cooks! at Market on Saturday

Join Christina Pirello, nationally recognized TV host of Christina Cooks! on PBS, at the Wrightstown Farmers Market this Saturday, August 22, at 11am, for a cooking demo and discussion on healthy food choices for yourself and your family.

In addition to cooking up a delicious dish made with fresh, locally grown ingredients from some of our vendors, Christina Pirello will be talking about the issues surrounding genetically modified foods and crops, eating local and CSAs (community supported agriculture).

Christina Pirello, MFN, is one of America’s preeminent authorities on a healthier lifestyle utilizing natural and whole foods. This bright, free-spirited, vivacious redhead with a radiant personality delivers a much needed message to the world. She’s made it her purpose in life to show the world that everyone can look their best and feel great, too, by learning to correctly select the best ingredients available.

Christina’s love affair with food began at a young age when she spent many happy hours cooking with her mother, who centered the family life in her Italian kitchen. “My mom was happiest at family gatherings while she was cooking."

That joy prepared Christina to understand the healing power of food -- an understanding Christina would put to its test at age 26 when she was diagnosed with terminal leukemia. By the time her illness was identified, the cancer had already advanced to an acute stage. Her doctors gave her little chance of recovery, and her options with conventional medical therapies were limited. She was told she had only months to live and to prepare herself for the inevitable.

She was discouraged and uncertain. A chance meeting with Robert Pirello, now her husband, would change her life forever. Robert, a whole foods advocate, helped Christina change her lifestyle and to adopt a diet based on healthy eating incorporating whole and unprocessed foods. This change saved her life! Christina overcame the odds and in the process developed an expertise in cooking with whole, natural foods.

From that time, she was utterly convinced of the close relationship between diet and health. She found her life’s calling was to help others discover the importance of this relationship in their own lives. Christina studied and became an expert in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, acupuncture and macrobiotics and earned a Masters degree in Nutrition. She has authored seven cookbooks on the subject of healthy eating and natural living.

Today, almost 31 years after her illness, Christina is a glowing example and inspiration illustrating that food choices have an enormous impact on health and well-being.

Utilizing her internationally respected TV show “Christina Cooks" and her many books she is: “Changing the Health of the World One Meal at a Time.”
