Introducing our newest cooking series we know you’ll get a lot out of – Quick Easy Healthy Meals: Plant-Based Cooking with Jessica Jarmer.
You’ve all heard the buzz and many of you have already tried it – plant-based diets are gaining a lot of attention, and for good reason. Documentaries and books like Forks Over Knives, The China Study and The Engine 2 Diet have made it abundantly clear: what we eat greatly affects our health and well-being and a plant-based diet is being proven by many to be optimal. Furthermore, studies suggest that a plant-based diet may actually reverse certain health conditions. If you’d like to know more, there is plenty out there to read up on, tons – here’s a link to Oprah with your choice of great and informative articles on plant-based diets to check out.
Now, don’t be intimidated by the words “plant-based diet” by thinking it’s in any way boring or difficult – Jessica will show you it’s anything but. And as a busy Mom, she also understands how important it is for family meals to be quick and easy yet hearty and satisfying. For her first class, she’ll be cooking her own Vegan Mac & Cheese (who doesn’t love mac & cheese??) and Tempeh with Kale. I for one have never cooked with tempeh and am VERY interested to see how it’s done.
The classes are free but we appreciate pre-registration so she knows how much food to prepare and so WE know how many seats to put out. Register by signing up in-store or calling the store of your choice. See you there!
