Are you in a dinner rut? Bored with the same old meals?
You know you should eat more vegetables, but are you?
You're thinking it would be fun to connect with others?
Let's do it together in recorded cooking classes!

From beginner cooks to seasoned ones, I help people break out of boring food with craveable meals.

As an award-winning registered dietitian, with a master’s degree in food science and human nutrition, I get it! You don’t need another meatloaf recipe; you want more plant-forward foods to feel lighter. Meals you can confidently bring to the table with peace of mind that you've got your back! I serve recipes with more fiber, lean protein, whole grains, and vegetables that also pass the taste test. The same recipes that are published in top magazines, such as Prevention, Reader's Digest, NBCNews, and TheHealthy!

Using everyday ingredients to take your food from DRAB to FAB and enjoy wholesome, nourishing meals, this dinner refresh boosts your kitchen confidence without having to leave home. Completely online, in real time – it’s a virtual cooking class!

What's for dinner?

If that question gives you a sinking feeling, then you need this class.

I'm Judy, a culinary dietitian. I love helping people eat delicious food, but I got tired of seeing people get stuck in a dinner rut and struggle with foods that made them feel guilty. So I created online cooking classes so that they feel more confident and make empowering food choices.

I provide doable weekly meals that take the stress and guesswork out of dinner planning, grocery shopping, and ingredient prep in the safety and convenience of your own home.

From comfort foods and lighter, healthful fare to one-pot meals and globally inspired dishes, you’ll enjoy a range of flavors, cuisine types, and cooking methods.

You’ll get complete access to the four-week course which includes:

  • We cook together

    Whether you're a novice or a ninja, we cook together in real time.

    In our own kitchens (I’m in mine, you’re in yours) making new, yummy recipes to boost our health and have fun.

You’re not buying one-time results; you’re feeding your soul and nourishing your body so that you can live your best life to do the things you truly want to do. For. The. Rest. Of. Your. Life.

How do the virtual classes work?

  • At your convenience

    Classes are delivered weekly so you can cook along with me at your convenience.

  • Fresh recipes

    Recipes that feed your brain and heart, deliciously. You’ll receive the recipe and equipment list each week, but no cooking ahead, we do that in class.

The classes are recorded, so if you’re traveling or have a conflict one week, no problem, you can catch up later. Simple as that!

Here’s the menu

Sweet Potato Nachos on baking sheet


This week a plant-forward meal! We practice knife skills, talk healthier ingredients, seasonings, cooking methods, and fun flavors with Sweet Potato Nachos.


There’s more to tacos than meat and cheese! Fold your tortilla around some delish and nutrish ingredients like…fish tacos with pickled onions, cabbage, and yogurt chipotle crema.

3 Fish Tacos
a bowl of spaghetti with spinach, blistered tomatoes and pine nuts


You’re probably cooking pasta every week, but by the end of this class, you’ll twirl pasta around a power-packed fork! Like spinach & blistered tomato pasta. Healthy fats, fiber, and so good, you may want to lick the bowl.


By the end of class, you have perfected a Mediterranean Power Bowl. PLUS, you’ll know the “who, what, where, when, and why” to make nutrient-rich meals AND have a lot more answers to “what’s for dinner?”

Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl
Take a peek inside a class. They're casual and fun!

Students love the class!

Are you ready to refresh dinner?

  • “Ms. LiveBest, Judy Barbe, shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with her students. Her classes are fun and helpful. We’ve taken classes around the world, but hers are the recipes that we’re making again and again. We look forward to more classes.”


  • “Thank you for a great class! It was fun and tasted wonderful! I will definitely fix that again. My husband also really liked it!”


  • “Thanks for adding such fun and nutrition to our lives! I look forward to more fun classes with you!”

    -Mary Anne

  • “I felt lighter after the CRUSH Dinner Bootcamp. The meals were satisfying and I just felt better!”


  • “We are making your recipes again and again! We have taken classes with such complicated recipes that I have not made them since.”


You do NOT need:

  • great cooking skills.
  • high-end equipment,
  • special ingredients, or
  • to spend all day in the kitchen.

I've looked at other programs. Some have your health in mind, but the food just doesn't inspire. Others use too much sugar and butter. I do it with your health and tastebuds in mind.

Truly, this is where the fun stuff happens!
