Personal Chef Lindsay Rice

Chef Lindsay Rice is the creator of Nourishing Spirits.

We are are an evolving and cooperating species, striving to live in harmony with the Earth, and we have so many choices available to us. Nourishing Spirits chooses to cook foods that are healthful, energizing and more sustainable for the Earth; therefore, limiting the amount of dairy products and excluding the use of red meat and poultry. Foods rich in protein, vitamins and minerals are used, including soy products, fish and medicinal ingredients that promote health and help you learn to appreciate subtle flavor and good nutrition.


"Lindsay is a treasure and anyone who has the honor of having her cook for them is blessed. Lindsay is an excellent chef and she paid careful attention to our particular needs and preferences." - J. Wager, Berkeley, CA

"Nourishing Spirit has opened my mind and palate to an alternative, healthier cuisine and taken the pressure off preparing good meals every day for my family. The menu choices are creative and surprisingly delicious." - K. McClung, Berkeley, CA

"I find Nourishing Spirit's socially and environmentally conscious vision refreshing. It's a spiritual practice of nourishing life and appreciating abundance. Each mouthful has been a intimate reminder that my life is interconnected with all others." - J. Wittrup, Santa Fe, NM

Lindsay's personable attitude with those involved at East West has been refreshing, and extremely appreciated.
