Tracey Bennett (aka The Reckless Foodie!)

Tracey Bennett is Jason’s business partner and wife of 25 years, mother of their four children, grandmother to that little cute thing and a well-respected plant-based wholefood chef. She personally created over 300 recipes for the online programmes that she and Jason ran over the last decade. Over many years, she has perfected the art of feeding a hungry family with solely plant-based meals, while keeping them strong healthy and asking for more of her delicious, fresh creations!

Tracey is passionate about teaching people how to create simple, tasty plant-based food that can be prepared easily – and is affordable. For Tracey, cooking is both therapy and art; she gets into her flow when in the kitchen and infuses all her food with loads of aroha. She adores connecting with others and talking plant-based food! These days you will often find her either teaching a cooking workshop, catering for an event, workshop or retreat, or co-leading a fasting retreat with Jason. Email Tracey direct here with any questions you may have. She is currently working on her first cookbook; which Jason believes is gonna be the best cookbook ever.

Plant-Based Cooking Workshops & Retreats

One of Tracey’s passions is teaching half day and one day cooking classes from her home kitchen out West. They are super fun, super relaxed and the feel and vibe of the day is sharing, learning feasting and laughter. Her topics range from main meals, decadent desserts, sensational salads, delicious raw treats and more. See our events page for Tracey’s upcoming offerings or email her here personally with any questions.

“Confession – I’m addicted to Tracey's fabulous plant-based workshops! I’ve now been to three and feel very confident in cooking these easy plant-based recipes, as does my husband who attended two of them with me. It's such a fun day with Tracey and like-minded people; cooking, eating and taking in all the awesome information that Tracey has to share. On a couple of occasions Tracey's hubby Jason (well know author/health researcher/speaker) has popped in and talked with us all about health and living your best life! The workshops are relaxed and fun, and for a non-cook gal like myself, new to a plant-based diet this was very appealing. Can’t wait for the next one!!” -Monique, 2020.

Plant-Based One-On-Ones

Tracey teaches in a very personal way as well – either meeting with you one on one to discuss your specific situation, and how you want to shift and change it, or coming to your home and giving your pantry a total makeover with you! Contact Tracey here.

Woo hoo - awesome

I want to come to the next one!!!!

Today’s harvest.... eating what is in season and naturally falling off the trees in your neighbourhood is gold! These grapefruit and lemon are off beautiful old trees on our generous neighbours land - they are literally tumbling off the trees. Grapefruit are an absolute superfood containing disease preventing lumioids - eat them! Peel them and cut them up leaving as much pith on as you can... no slicing them in half and sprinkling sugar on top...! #blastfromthepast ... See MoreSee Less
