Zainab (“Z”) Fisher, originally from Sierra Leone, West Africa. Zainab came to the United States as a young girl and lived in Boston where she met her husband Tom Fisher. Nearly 15 years ago, Tom was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. After Tom’s experience with stage IV cancer, it unexpectedly led both of them on a healing journey. In the beginning, it wasn’t easy, because they ate animal protein and their bodies went through a detox period. As a result, Zainab has seen firsthand, the healing and health effects of a plant based diet.
As a child, Zainab’s grandparents introduced her to the kitchen and how to cook. They made Lebanese and African food. This got her interested in food at an early age. Zainab used to work in hospitals, helping people, but she knew her passion was food and helping people with optimal nutrition for optimal health. Before she changed her diet, she was overweight, had digestive problems, skin issues, and had low energy. After adopting a plant based (vegan) diet her digestion improved greatly. The unneeded weight melted off her body. Her skin became clear and vibrant. Her energy became much more abundant.
“Affectionately known as “Chef Z,” has attended and served samples for many of our charity events, grand openings and special seminars in which patrons have asked over and over what channel is her show on!” “We are extremely selective on having someone attend these events and we always call on Chef Z not only because of her charm and pleasant personality, but because of the quality of healthy food selections that she creates.” ~ Adrienne Mazzone, President, TransMedia Group
