Founder of Karma Chow Melissa Costello has always had a passion for healthy, delicious food and nutrition. As a child, Melissa would spend hours in the kitchen with her Italian father making homemade tomato sauce and pasta. When she became a vegetarian at age 19 she began experimenting with healthier versions of everyday recipes, which led her to her passion for vegetarian cooking. Her collection of simple yet delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes and desserts, has become popular among many top names in the film & music industry.
Melissa's dedication to health, nutrition & wellness naturally led her to study nutrition at N.H.I. in San Diego as well as become a Certified Wellness Coach through the Spencer Institute. Melissa has been coaching clients one on one, and in groups for the last 4 years, on how to live a healthier and happier life through nutrition, exercise and a whole foods diet.
As personal chef to celebrity fitness guru Tony Horton, creator of the highly popular workout system P90X, Melissa is constantly finding creative ways to keep Tony and her other clients happy, fit, and healthy through a whole-foods way of life.
Her mission is to help educate the planet on healthy, whole food eating while working to keep our planet 'green' for generations to come through vegetarianism and eco-conscious solutions. She travels throughout the US with Tony leading nutritional lectures at his fitness camps. She also brings her wellness program into corporations to teach others how to implement a healthy way of life and hosts hands-on cooking classes at local Whole Foods stores in Los Angeles, in private homes, and across the US.
