Kit Wong-Khoo

Natural Foods Chef and Holistic Health Coach

Chef & facilitator of the Vegan(ish) Cooking Class & Dinner Party, May 19th, 2018 at Le Gourmet Kitchen in Englewood, NJ where she'll teach guests tocook dishes with seasonal, local, fresh and organic ingredients.

Advice: "Listen to your body and do your best to eat better, as we are not eating for the present, but we are eating for the future."

When Kit's daughter Kaitlyn was two years old, she was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma, which turned her family's lives upside down. After chemotherapy, Kaitlyn was left with many health conditions, including ADHD, learning disabilities, and epilepsy. Kit tried many traditional medicines, which left terrible side effects.

As a result of this experience, Kit became interested in doing what she could to help her daughter and enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to become a holistic health coach. 

Kit changed the way her family ate, which started to have a positive effect on Kaitlyn’s health, in combination with supplements and many alternative treatments.

"Kaitlyn’s epilepsy was another huge life-changing event for us. She was taking so many medications, seeing so many neurologists, and nothing was helping. Through myresearch I discovered the ketogenic diet, but was not getting support from the medical practitioners in terms of getting Kaitlynon this regimen. I decided to investigate NGI after my friend, another natural foods chef, told me about it. I wanted to become better informed and learn how to prepare the meals for the ketogenic diet myself, rather than use the prepackaged–and more processed–foods available on the market. Ultimately, my daughter was my reason and inspiration to attend NGI. I am continuously setting an example for her to follow: that we can be successful in every good decision in our life, as long as we work hard and with passion. We don’t “settle" for less."
