Shi LaChef is the fun and playful 13-year-old youth Chef, CEO, and TV personality committed to transforming the lives of her peers through healthy eating and thinking. She started her first company, S.N.A.C. it up! (Shi’s Natural Approach to Cooking), in 2012 after getting off to a rocky start at home. Shi LaChef began speaking positive affirmations over herself, and found that this not only improved her home life, but also made it super easy to choose healthy foods and positive thoughts. Her passion for eating healthy translated into a desire for all children to be healthy while enjoying food that tastes great. Shi LaChef knows her way around the kitchen, and is dedicated to providing kids with healthy food choices that they will love!

Shi LaChef has created a platform to educate children on the benefits of eating healthy and thinking good thoughts, while encouraging them to take charge of their lives at a young age. Shi has authored the first S.N.A.C. it up! Cookbook, co-wrote her 8 episode DVD entitled "S.N.A.C. it up! with "Shi," and recorded a life changing positive affirmation CD for impressionable young minds. These items are available for purchase NOW! The best part about what Shi LaChef does is that it is FOR KIDS BY A KID!

Shi LaChef has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX, has worked with top executive chefs, and has been featured in some of Atlanta’s upscale restaurants. As a part of her growing brand, she regularly conducts a series of workshops entitled “Think Inside the Lunchbox,” “S.H.A.R.E.W.I.T.H.,” “Sweet Life on S.N.A.C,” and “Toby’s War on S.N.A.C.!” These all include “Shi LaChef's” uniquely presented positive thoughts component.
