Galen Foulois is the founder of RestoreFood. At an early age, Galen was impacted by the importance of making healthy nutrition decisions and how they can impact a healthy lifestyle while his mother was battling breast cancer. That experience awakened Galen to digging deeper into how food is grown, produced and prepared and recognizing that every bite we take impacts our overall well-being. After a business career in media technology, Galen turned his focus directly to food. He attended the Natural Gourmet Institute's Health Chef Training in New York City. Galen is currently working with private clients, in conjunction with other wellness professionals, to develop comprehensive nutrition and lifestyle plans to help clients overcome particular health conditions, or to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent illness. Galen is also working to influence food as medicine policies and awareness, through public and private action.

Line a cookie sheet with Parchment paper and spray with olive oil. Lay Tempeh out on parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes. Turn Tempeh over, and bake for another 10 minutes, until golden brown on both sides. Cover bottom of a 9” x 13” baking dish with BBQ sauce and lay out Tempeh in a single layer. Cover the top of the Tempeh with BBQ sauce and repeat, until all of the Tempeh is covered with BBQ sauce. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
