What People Are Saying
“I am a touring recording artist and also a Vegan which can sometimes mean rice and veggies more than I want on the road.
I was in Columbus for a couple of days performing and a friend hooked me up with Rita (NuYu Nourish). She pre cooked 3 meals a day for me for the days I was in town and everything was absolutely delicious and healthy and SO convenient to have on the go!
I highly recommend her for any personal chef or catering needs you may have! She ROCKS!”

She is extremely talented and passionate about her cooking as well as helping people achieve their health goals through nutritious, delicious and cruelty-free meals.

I have come up with healthy and amazing menu items that I offer with our Personal Chef services & Group Classes.
“Beefy” Mushroom Bourguignon
If you’ve ever had this authentic French dish and thought after going plant-based that you’d never have it again, you are in for a big surprise! I have “veganized” this dish and it is packed with the traditional flavors. Sautéed then slow-cooked mushrooms, carrots, garlic, rosemary, thyme and even a bold dry red wine to finish the dish. (Alcohol cooks off). This is paired with a whole grain fusilli pasta. Not a traditional side but, plant-based “egg” noodles do not exist that I have found. This dish is completely oil free and a true labor of Love! (Can sub gluten free)
A traditional Indian dish featuring chick peas cooked to perfect tenderness with an incredible aroma of coriander and the tang of Amchoor (unripe dry mango powder). The dish is accompanied with roasted cubed potatoes.
