Wellness is Rooted in Community

Charlotte Christensen

Charlotte Christensen, MS, founder of RootedRVA, believes that true health starts with living soil and confidence in the kitchen. As a health-supportive home chef, budding farmer and functional nutrition expert, she thinks of food as medicine and believes that our bodies have a remarkable capability for self-healing.

      Christensen knows that eating whole foods grown in season and cooked with intention provides a powerful experience and lowers cellular inflammation, the underlying cause of many chronic diseases. Through RootedRVA, she helps her clients plug into their local food systems, streamline their meal-planning routine and feel empowered in the kitchen. Christensen works closely with Virginia farmers to help connect her clients with the most nutrient dense and flavorful food possible.

      With a master’s degree in functional nutrition from the National University of Naturopathic Medicine, in Portland, Oregon, to complement her background in biology, ecology and organic agriculture, Christensen returned to Richmond this year to help her community achieve their ultimate health goals through mindful, sustainable lifestyle choices. Her program is firmly rooted in cultivating a community that is engaged in functional nutrition, local food systems and culinary skills. RootedRVA is currently accepting new clients for its weekly meal prep service, Savor the Season, designed to stock your refrigerator each week with seasonally inspired, easy-to-assemble meals straight from local farms.
