About Us

Tracy has been a vegan for decades, thriving in this conscious, compassionate, mindful lifestyle and whole-food plant-based way of eating. But she still remembers making the transition and the steps taken to get there! She is an expert in plant-based nutrition and food preparation and is a certified Nutritional Consultant. She specializes in helping others make food and diet choices for weight loss, disease prevention and control, and finds it truly rewarding to share her knowledge and love of food, building community, empowering others to achieve and maintain their health goals through healthier lifestyle choices.

A former Software Engineer with a Master’s degree in Computer Science, Tracy has always had a tremendous passion for sharing healthy and delicious food. Over the years, people have invariably commented that she should sell her amazing kitchen creations. She co-founded Veg Appeal and has taught Dr. Neal Barnard’s Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) Food for Life course for cancer prevention and survival since 2005, helping scores of San Diegans with her teaching. She contributed over 100 recipes to David Kater’s Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness and is co-founder of local nonprofit support group (since 2015), PlantDiego.

In March of 2020, when the Covid-19 Pandemic put a stop to her in-person group classes, Tracy, along with Steven Sarnoff, her husband of over 30 years, took a leap and launched Tracy’s REAL Foods. Having raised two healthy and wonderful children into amazing independent adults, Tracy’s REAL Foods is truly a Mom and Pop operation!
