Cookbook author, culinary nutritionist and wellness coach, Melissa Costello, founder of Karma Chow has always had a passion for healthy, delicious food and nutrition. When she became a vegetarian at age 19 she began experimenting with healthier versions of everyday recipes, which led her to her passion for plant-based cooking. She is the creator of the 30-Day Vital Life Cleanse, which teaches people how to change their lifestyle and their relationship to food through food-based cleansing.
As personal chef to celebrity fitness guru, Tony Horton, creator of the highly popular workout system, P90X & P90X2, Melissa is constantly finding creative ways to keep Tony and her other high-profile clients happy, fit and healthy through a whole foods way of life.
Her mission is to educate the planet about healthy, whole food eating as well as how to keep our planet “green” for generations to come through vegetarianism and eco-conscious solutions. She travels throughout the US leading nutritional lectures, leads monthly classes at Whole Foods Market and brings her 3-month wellness program into corporations to teach others how to implement a healthy way of life.
