Deliciously Healthy Cooking Class + Guest Speakers

In our next class we will be mixing things up a bit!

We'll be cooking for sure, but we will also be roasting java beans and listening to a short lecture from an amazing Exercise Physiologist!

As per usual, we'll have tasters and I'll be serving one of my favorite dishes at the beginning of the class: "Chicken" Alfredo!

The cooking part:

Gluten-free berry pancakes - a family favorite!

No-Tuna Salad 

Mustard Greens a la Naas 

Garlic Broccoli 

Chocolate Chia Seed pudding

The Coffee Beans part:

Ryan Rogers, an Army Band Officer and personal friend, is going to demonstrate for us how easy it is to roast your own coffee and how you can support some wonderful humanitarian causes at the same time. Ryan is a hoot, so be ready to be entertained!

The Exercise Physiologist part:

Sharon McDowell-Larsen, PhD works as an Exercise Physiologist and Global Fitness Manager at the Center for Creative Leadership. This wonderful lady is going to share with us the facts about soy consumption! The information you are going to learn will really surprise you, so come ready to learn a lot in a very short time!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Health and blessings!

    These classes are something I so look forward to! Thanks heaps to Naas, Sharon, and Ryan for all of the wonderful information they shared, as well as to the magic team of kitchen elves for their behind-the-scenes contributions. :)

    I greatly appreciated the information on carrageenan as I wasn't aware of it until I took this class and it turns out that it is an ingredient in the plant-based milk that I use. Also, thanks for inviting Sharon to speak to the group about beans and soy. You've delivered an outstanding class once again, Naask! Thank you!

    Bummer we can't make it. We are stuck in Denver and won't be able to be back to the Springs in time.
