"The Holistic Holiday at Sea™ cruise is a transforming experience. It's an opportunity to expand your knowledge and eat perfectly healthy foods while relaxing in the beautiful Caribbean. It wouldn't surprise me if you came back from your vacation a different person."
Neal Barnard, M.D., Washington, DC

Christina Pirello

In 1983, Christina Pirello, Emmy Award-winning host of the national public television series 'Christina Cooks,' was diagnosed with terminal cancer and fought her way back to robust good health through her zest for life and an alternative nutritional approach.

Having earned a Masters in nutrition, Christina set out on a mission to educate and inform about the impending and potentially catastrophic health crises facing our culture today. Christina’s mission has led her to teach and lecture in a variety of settings from natural food stores to corporate boardrooms; from inner-city high schools, elementary schools, and universities to hospitals, wellness and senior centers.

Her compelling ability to communicate her own passionate belief in the importance of food in our lives has proved both infectious and inspiring. Pirello unreservedly gives of herself to everyone she meets, instilling in them the motivation to change their own lives.

In an effort to bring her message to a wider audience, Christina’s national public television series 'Christina Cooks' was launched in 1997. Today, this motivational, educational and increasingly popular program airs nationally on more than 150 public television stations, regionally on CN8 The Comcast network, and internationally in as many as 50 countries, impacting the lives of more than seven million viewers each month.

Additionally, in 2008, Christina Pirello will expand her audience to a projected 25 million by launching 'Well...Well...Well...' an hour-long, weekly educational program on national public radio. Co-hosted by public health advocate, Dr. William Klevos, the show will be a forum for information, education, investigation and discussion about all aspects of health as it relates to food choices.

Pirello has written six educational and informative books on health and nutrition (published by Penguin Group, USA). Her newest book, This Crazy Vegan Life is a highly informational guidebook to our food culture. The book is a practical step-by-step guide to making informed decisions about what to buy, how to prepare it and how to enjoy the benefits of a truly balanced way of life.

Christina Pirello gives generously of her time to sit on the Boards of Directors of: the Farm Market Trust, the Philadelphia Green Council, the Green City Youth Council, and the Chefs’ Council of Chefs for Humanity. She is also on the faculty of Drexel University.
