Dolev LLC Food Coach was founded by Yael Dolev.
Yael has a BSc in Agronomy (Agriculture and Food Science), an MSc in Botany, and a Ph.D. ABD in Ecology from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Yael thus brings to her coaching a new multidisciplinary approach about the connection between the body that we need to sustain, the food that we eat, and the environment in which our food grows.
Yael has over twenty five years of work experience in agriculture and conservation. She was part of a team that developed tomato species, worked in projects in the Department of Herb and Spices, was a field guide in a research institute, an editor of a professional Food and Hospitality magazine, and wrote about food packaging, herbs and spices and food additives, as well as articles about produce and recipes. During all these years Yael trained and educated adults and children.
Yael owns a farm and has hands-on experience growing avocado, oranges, pecan nuts, cotton, and olives.
Yael follows a Mediterranean diet and keeps wholesome food habits as a second nature. She loves eating well and enjoys a good meal, yet prefers to spend limited time shopping and cooking. She is a creative chef who invents easy-to-make tasty recipes. Yael has lived in four different countries and travelled the world, familiarizing herself with worldwide eating habits and varieties of food.
Carefully following the eating habits of children and adults, and based on her experience, Yael has developed special programs that help the young and adults, individuals and groups meet their eating challenges
Yael lives by her motto of “Enjoy Eating And Never Diet Again”.
