Take a look at what my past cooks had to say!

Inspired to try beet greens and mix beans with veggies.  Also stock.

I like how she talked to us – rather than over-rely on PowerPoint.  I wasn’t distracted.  She smiled and was really positive.  Does she teach anything else?

Presenter was great with pointers about introducing new items to the diet.  Very energetic.  Thanks so much : )

Inspired to shop the perimeter of the store and search coupons.

Engaging, lively, interesting!  Thank you!


Before the program, I wondered, “Could this really help?”  And ‘Yes, it did.’  Libby is funny, but serious.  She and her program, Life Strategies to Total Wellness made me feel like I can conquer the world.

Libby’s material is both dynamic and original. She’s a real human firecracker! To say I got my money’s worth from Libby’s presentation is an understatement. I came away from her speaking engagement with a valuable understanding of how to lead a more healthy lifestyle.

I got a boost from Life Strategies to Total Wellness.  I felt tension before the program but left at ease with a plan of attack.  Libby created the urgency to look at wellness today.  I liked the excellent participation Libby stimulated from the group.

Good basic practical information.  I liked Libby’s ‘peasant cooking “ attitude and her honest ‘no bull’ communication.”  The recipes were wonderful and the organization was impeccable.

Libby’s program helped me realize it’s not worth going through life eating unhealthy, wasting money and energy on [high-fat foods] adding pounds by the year.  Her program was very entertaining and interesting.  I liked the visuals of Crisco showing the amount of fat in fast food.

“Great use of props.” “Easy to understand.”  “Makes it look easy.”

Very well done. I liked the fact you answered all our questions.  Very personable and spoke very well.  Understands her subject and the joys in sharing fun experiences.  When are you going to be on PBS?  You are a perfect fit!
