Karen Rylander, Certified Nutrition Consultant
Karen earned a B.A. in anthropology from University of Colorado-Boulder in 2000. After adopting a primal-type diet in 2009 and finding great health improvements, she attended BAUMAN COLLEGE IN BOULDER, CO to receive her certification as a nutrition consultant in 2011. She has been working with clients since then, helping them learn what foods to eat, how to cook them, and how to find greater health and vitality. “I am passionate about real food and its power to heal. I believe that our health is the most precious gift. We need to support our body so we can enjoy life, pursue our passions, and have fun.”
She studied at COOK STREET COOKING SCHOOL in Denver, CO and received her professional food and wine certification in 2007. Karen started her own Paleo food delivery service at FRCF called, The Primal Kitchen. After that venture, she worked as a Paleo personal chef in Denver. Most recently, Karen worked with PALEO ON THE GO as their head chef and nutrition consultant. She still consults with them.
Fan of Crazy Socks
Karen grew up playing soccer and field hockey in Houston, TX and always loved being active. As an adult, she never found anything to replace that fun, group feeling she had as a kid playing sports until she stumbled on CrossFit in 2008. She’s been CrossFitting ever since. Beyond the gym, she enjoys walking, skiing, hiking, and leisurely biking. Anything other than running!
