Food for Life Instructor David Stroka

David Stroka has been a chef for over 25 years and vegan for nearly 20 years. He grew up spending time in his grandmother’s kitchen, which is where he found his passion for cooking. This passion for food, including fatty foods and meat, pushed David to balloon to 425 pounds. It was at that point that he decided to make some dietary changes. After reading John Robbin’s book, A Diet for a New America, David went vegan and never looked back. Since then, he has shaved the weight off and kept it off with very little effort.  He is excited to share his love of food, the importance of a plant based diet in overall health, and to show people vegans are vibrant, energetic, and fulfilled people. 

Why did you become a Food for Life instructor?

"As a chef, learning to cook a plant-based cuisine rekindled my thirst for cooking knowledge and improved my taste of food."

Here is what class attendees are saying…

“This class has made a huge difference in my overall well-being. I’ve lost 18 pounds in seven weeks. I feel better, sleep better, and am in an overall better mood. Even my skin and hair have improved.” 
    -Tiffany M., Providence Cancer Center, Anchorage, Alaska

"Everyone who is concerned about nutrition will benefit from this class — and enjoy it. For those of us challenged to survive cancer, it is a great inspiration!”
    -Brian C., St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, Conn.

"After five weeks on the program, my husband and I have both lost 10 pounds. My blood sugar has dropped 30 points. My doctor says I may get off all medications at the next visit. I am a breast cancer survivor and my husband has heart disease, so this is a must for us!”
    -Annie H., Roanoke Recreation Center, Roanoke, Texas
