Nourish Recipe CardsA casual restaurant, Nourish™ is a center for wellness, that also happens to serve delicious, health conscious food.


Food and nutrition with intention

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Kirstin from Philadelphia who loved cheese steaks and Amoroso rolls….

Kirstin grew up to be a successful business owner and consultant, but something wasn’t quite right: She was living with constant migraines, terrible seasonal allergies, and digestive struggles, which she always thought were “normal.” After moving to Phoenix in 2007, Kirstin discovered she had food allergies and Celiac disease. With little help from the allopathic medical community, Kirstin turned to naturopathic medicine and nutrition and learned how to support her body to heal itself.

In 2010, Kirstin connected with Chef Dan who joined the journey and helped take Kirstin’s home cook recipes to the next level. With her life savings and money borrowed from her parents, Kirstin open the first Nourish cafe.

Kirstin is now a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Chef Dan is an herbalist and the two work together to bring food, nutrition, and education to The Valley.

The Nourish philosophy is that no one diet works for everyone, but the basis of wellness stems from intentional ingredients that are clean, whole, organic, and free from gluten, soy, peanuts, and nonsense.

Nourish is intentional in ingredients, vendors, employees, pricing, flavors, and purpose and supports the idea that when you give the body what it needs, the body, mind, and soul will heal itself.

Stay tuned for the next chapter in the Nourish story….

Kirstin CareyKirstin Carey

Kirstin Carey, Certified Holistic Nutritionist is the original “Freak at the Table.” She loves to enlighten people on the joys of food, health, and nutrition, and finding which foods work best for their bodies, their goals, and their lives!

After discovering she had food allergies and Celiac Disease, Kirstin’s threw everything she had into learning about true wellness through food and all her (seemingly) random health issues finally made sense! She closed her successful consulting company and opened Nourish™, a gluten-free soy-free restaurant that focuses on delicious dishes to help people optimize their mind, body, and soul.

This cheesesteak eating, native Philadelphian used to hide her veggies in her napkin and hated anything that came from the sea. Now she’s a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, restaurant owner, and nutritional consultant living in Scottsdale, and has never been more healthy and balanced.

With more than 20 years experience as a business owner, real estate investor, consultant, and professional speaker, Kirstin earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation in 2009 held by only 10% of people in the International Federation of Professional Speakers, and served for three years as a Director on the Board for the National Speakers Association.

When she’s not working with food, speaking to groups about holistic nutrition and health, or managing Nourish™, you can usually find Kirstin with her dogs Holly, Olive, and Roxy or with her husband Anthony, a vegan body builder, Certified Personal Trainer, and gym owner.
