Team Member Highlight - Chef Dee Iraca
Chef Dee Iraca

Dee Iraca is the founder of Eat Well Chef, and a culinary nutritionist who's passionate about healthy food.  She's a "fooditionist" ~ A foodie at heart with an obsession for making healthy and delicious food.


We pride ourselves in making nearly everything from scratch using as much organic, local and sustainable ingredients as possible.  We're proud to be partnering with several Colorado suppliers.  We design our menus based on what's fresh and seasonal, so you get the most incredible, flavorful food.  

A message from Dee:

I have been honored to cook for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard team at the 2018 Olympics in Seoul, Korea! This is an incredible career opportunity, but it's also an extraordinary personal opportunity, since I was born in Seoul and adopted as a baby (with my twin sis).  I haven't been back to Korea, and have dreamed of this my whole life!  

Why are you passionate about helping people with weight issues?

My father, who has passed away, experienced almost every health issue there is: he had Congestive Heart Failure and Type II Diabetes which caused all kinds of other issues and ultimately resulted in him losing his life.

That is partly what prompted me to get a degree in Culinary Nutrition. My father needed to eat better and take care of his body due to these illnesses he had.  I was helping my mother with his care, and I started looking into healthy food and cooking and how to make food that is healthy appear heavier and delicious to appeal to everyone, especially my father.

How do you stay healthy and fit?

I enjoy cooking meals for myself and my husband.  We love to eat out and try new foods, but mostly, I cooks for us at home.   I keep up on trends with regards to foods and products in the marketplace and does research to make sure they are really healthy and not just a "trend".  I like to run, do yoga, strength training and practices mindfulness.   It is important to me to promote and live a healthy lifestyle with everything I do.

Watch for emails on our Healthful Life MD 5 Part Cooking Series starting next month on March 13th!

You can contact us here at Healthful Life MD if you would like in-home personalized instruction including pantry clean out and cooking classes with Dee.

Am I Overweight? An Action Plan for Men to Reclaim an Active Lifestyle
“I used to play golf and cycle and fish 3 times all in the same weekend and now I can’t even do one of those things without feeling exhausted.”

The men I see in my medical weight loss practice most often come to me because of a combination of family obligations, change in work life with increased travel or increased desk time, and less time to spend being active. They find themselves either having difficulty or unable to do the things they enjoy to the level they enjoy them. In addition, these men are starting to have health complications that their doctors have attributed to their weight, their nutrition, or their activity level.
