Growing up in a large Italian family in New Jersey, eating wasn’t just something we did—it was life, culture, family. Food was love and love was in food. We planned all week—my mother, aunts and me—clipping recipes from the NY Times, and getting fresh meats from our local butcher and produce from the market. We spent days planning and making meals that were thoughtful, beautiful, delicious AND nutritious.

I do the same thing today that I did then. Besides my family, my inamorato is the kitchen, the place I love to be. I took my culture’s love of food and spent my entire life training and seeking the education that would allow me to bring smart nutrition to your table. I learned to navigate the nutritional nonsense so you don’t have to! I trained under world-renowned integrative medical experts like Dr. Mehmet Oz, Mark Hyman and Deepak Chopra at the Institute of Integrative Health and Nutrition where I earned my certification as a Holistic Health Coach and became licensed through The American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
It is this love, heritage, and education that gave birth to Intelligent Gourmet. As a certified plant-based chef and health and nutrition coach, I’ve cleaned up the classic, feel-good foods we grew up with, and added some innovative creations of my own, to bring you a menu full of life, flavor, nutrition and LOVE! The ingredients are fresh, the sourcing is thoughtful and sustainable, and the food is precisely prepared to deliver goodness and quality nutrition in every bite.

As a mother, and busy entrepreneur, I understand how hard it can be to bring your family the best meal at the end of a long day. Whether it’s joining us at our table or bringing our nutritious, culinary creations home to yours—we have a plan that’s just right for you and your loved ones! From my family to yours—Intelligent Gourmet is here to give you what you need at the tip of your fingers. Whatever your health goals, whether it’s a detoxifying juice cleanse, a nutritious meal plan or wellness coaching for your family or office—Intelligent Gourmet is here for you!

Saluti! To your health,

Linda Baldwin
