Are you interested in living a healthy lifestyle where you don’t have to give up the things that you love? Want to live healthy and still have a social life? Join Kristen Johnson Brogan, registered dietitian, superfood chef, and author of Target To Table: Healthy & Delicious Meals One Superfood at a Time, as she shares the secret to living a lifestyle where health and happiness feel effortless.

One of the biggest things we all have in common is we all eat. Food is our universal language. We all talk food but unfortunately we don’t all “talk food” the same. Many of us have different beliefs surrounding food, follow different diet plans, and are constantly hearing about new fads and trends on how and what to eat. Are you desperate to quiet the noise and find a belief that never changes?

This event is designed to connect people through shared meals, stimulating substantive dialogue about important issues, while building relationships, and transforming lives. Food is social and it’s meant to be shared in a dynamic and life-changing way.


Typically Kristen will present in a demonstration type style where she shows how to make each recipe in a fun and easy way, while blending in some nutrition tidbits that will blow the audience’s mind.

Culinary experience can be in a conference room, cooking space, restaurant, or in the comfort of your own home where Kristen comes to you. Kristen can work directly with the venue to organize logistics and items needed for the culinary experience.

  • Culinary Experience includes 20 minutes of PowerPoint presentation and 40 minutes of recipe demonstration
  • Culinary demonstration to include Black Bean Mango Salad and Fruilticious Upside Cake
  • Kristen to make one batch of each during the demonstration to serve for samples
  • Option to provide plated dinner for attendees
