Are you tired of fighting the scale and getting stuck on weight plateaus?
Do you want to feel great and be healthier but find yourself falling off that wagon?
Do you keep searching online hoping to come across the right answer but get nowhere?
If this is you, you are in the right place!
All that online noise creates so much confusion about food. One site tells you coconut oil is great for you while another tells you coconut oil is not as good as you may think.
All that overwhelm just makes you want to dig into that chocolate bar because it is easier!
It is frustrating, I get it!
It took me almost 15 years to finally find the balance and the right foods for my body.
Hi! I’m Lennis, a food and wellness coach and I help women find the right food and wellness strategies that work for them so they can feel energized, healthy and live the lifestyle they want.
Let me backtrack a bit and tell you my story.
At age 18 I was suffering from high cholesterol.
By 19, I was diagnosed with H. Pylori – a bacteria that affects your stomach and is known for causing stomach ulcers and could potentially lead to cancer if left unattended.
For the next decade after my diagnosis, I was trying to eat healthy, but will often fall off the wagon.
I saw a dietitian, who gave me a meal plan for a week. I would stick to it until I felt better, then went back to my old habits.
Little by little I realized that my health was getting too much in the way of my life.
Like you, I didn’t have the help I needed.
I had to figure it out on my own.
I had to learn so much about my body, about cooking, about what I liked and what I didn’t like to eat.
I wish I had someone to help me get into healthy habits, who would hold me accountable to make that lifestyle change and achieving the overall wellness I wanted.
This is why I created Cook Dance Love Live.
Through the years I created the habit of cooking and found that spending time in the kitchen actually settled my anxieties.
I also knew that being active was a big part of being healthy and feeling great, so dancing took center stage in my life for a few years.
After many years, I finally discovered the fire that drives me and learned to love myself.
I found the confidence that tells me I’m doing well and I am living the life of my dreams because I am here.
Now it’s your turn to find what good nutrition and wellness means to you. To invest in yourself.
And I am here to help so you don’t need to take the long way around.
Let’s do this together.

I’m sure by now you are now curious to learn more about me.
I’m a self-made home chef! And Arepas are my specialty.
Fun fact: I was born and raised in Venezuela and moved to the US when I was 17 years old.
I am actually a chemical engineer and graduated with my Masters in Engineering from Manhattan College. I came from an engineering family, so it made sense for me as a young teenager to follow that career path.
After a divorce and being laid-off I took some time off to invest it on myself. This was the time I finally made me a priority!
I dug deep and discovered my passions.
I love hiking on the weekends, visiting national parks and traveling whenever is possible. And when I travel, I love learning about different cultures, especially through food.
You can find many of my recipes through my YouTube channel.
Fun fact #2: I have videos on my channel in both English and Spanish and have been told that Spanish was not my first language because on some of the videos I was so nervous I actually have a strange Spanish accent!
Lastly, I am super happy you are here and look forward to connecting with you.
