About Sally 

Meet Sally Lipsky


In 2008, while still in treatment for late-stage cancer, I began educating myself about the power of food to heal and protect from disease.


In my quest to learn more and more about whole, plant-based eating, I completed a Certificate in Plant-based Nutrition (T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies), Food for Life Program Training (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine), Farms to Forks Weekend Immersion (Forks Over Knives & Engine 2 Diet), and Culinary Rx Plant-based Wellness Course (Rouxbe Online Cooking School & The Plantrician Project).

Currently, I put my knowledge and zeal into educating others about how to use food in their journeys toward long-term health.


I provide presentations, classes, and workshops on many aspects of whole food, plant-based nutrition. (American Vegan Society Speaker's Bureau)

Topics include:
  • Basics of Plant-Based Eating: what it is, why it's important, how to incorporate into your daily routine

  • Healthy Plant-Based Meals: shopping, cooking, and dining out

  • One-Pot Meals that are easy, tasty, and nutritious!

  • Meat-Free Holiday Meals    

  • Reading Food Packaging Labels

  • Dealing with Allergies and Food Sensitivities

  • Using Food to Fight Cancer and Chronic Diseases

  • The Science Behind Plant-Based Eating

  • Building a Community of Health: home, work, and socially

  • Managing Stress through Healthy Food Choices

  • Plant-Based Eating on a Budget

  • Sustaining Plant-Based Eating: Navigating Holidays and Social Situations
