My Veggie Chef

About Kristie:
Kristie Holdren's passion for vegan cooking began in 2006 when she discovered a recipe for vegan cheese dip that was better than the real thing. From that moment on, Kristie began to transform meat-centric dishes from her childhood into delicious vegan masterpieces that would fool even the most devoted carnivore.

Kristie started My Veggie Chef, a vegan meal delivery service, in order to share her healthy, vegan creations with the community. Kristie is a strong supporter of local businesses and designs her menus around seasonal produce as much as possible. When she's not cooking, Kristie enjoys growing her own veggies, reading vegan cookbooks (she owns no less than 88 at last count), writing about food and taking pictures of her creations. She also enjoys hiking and spending as much time as possible in nature.

Kristie and her husband Matthew reside in East Nashville, Tennessee with their beloved Shih-Tzu rescue, Brody. She is a 1999 graduate of Belmont University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health. She is also a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
About Mark:
