What sets our food apart from the rest.
Good Earth blossomed out of the real life experiences of two women who realized they had to take their health, and the health of their families into their own hands. When Marcia and Rose started exploring the impact of nutrition, their paths led them both to become certified Health Coaches.
Their education and experience working as health coach through their platform called Detox Chef, not only transformed their lifestyles, and healed their own families, but impacted the families of their clients. By implementing clean eating and witnessing real lasting results, Marcia and Rose saw the true need for healthy food in their community. This inspired their next endeavor, Good Earth Restaurant.
They now provide healing food, sourcing seasonal produce from local farms, such as Verrill Farm and Ferjulian Farm, when possible. They have been offering food their community can trust for the past seven years, empowering their customers with the knowledge and resources to be nourished and thrive.
Meet Marcia and Rose, the people behind our food and learn what makes our food here at Good Earth Holistic Kitchen so special.
Health Coach and Founder
Marcia Ouellet has years of experience in the health, nutrition and culinary arena, most recently as the founder and former owner of BusyMomChef.com. BMC provided custom designed and prepared meals, assisting families in caring for their children with food allergies, ADHD, cancer, gout, diabetes, obesity and fibromyalgia.
Marcia has studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. Her teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, Leader in the field of Mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willet, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
Her approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create a list of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, she works with her clients to create happy, healthy lives in a way that is flexible, fun, rewarding, and produces lasting results
Health Coach and Co-Founder
Since Rose Santos was a child, she has dealt with a constipation disorder. As a young adult, her doctor warned her against bad diet habits, however she ignored his recommendations and continued her diet of high carbs and sugars.
As Rose got older, the health issues inevitably only worsened, not only for herself but for her husband, who has battled type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.
Their daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia, which they responded to with the traditional route of medication. This led to a disruption in their daughter’s hormones and contributed to depression and anxiety.
Rose realized she needed to seriously reevaluate her family’s lifestyle.
This inspired Rose to pursue an education at Hippocrates Institute where she studied the Eat to Thrive Program, and was certified as a Health Coach. Her passion in this area has transformed her family’s life. They now eat clean, mostly organic, and gluten-free. They’ve also decreased their animal protein intake, and eat raw.
As a result, they are now all cured from their health issues, and medication free.
