Gluten-Free Menu Planning with Sweet Roots NYC

Join us for a GF menu planning workshop hosted by Marisa Smith, founder of Sweet Roots NYC, that will give you the tools to kick packaged, processed foods to the curb and start eating fresh, whole foods with ease. Learn how embracing home cooking and a real food diet can make eating less treacherous and more joyful.

Marisa will share Sweet Roots NYC strategies for planning, shopping and prepping so that you can get healthy, home cooked meals on the table in 30 minutes or less. She'll cover the tactical - from planning turnkey menus to storing food for shelf-life - as well as the emotional.

You'll walk away knowing how to:

- Plug seasonal vegetables and alternative grains into 3 menu templates - Stock your refrigerator for maximum shelf-life

- Prep your meals to cut down cooking time

- Repurpose leftovers so that none of your kitchen time goes to waste

The workshop will be 45 minutes, followed by a Q & A. Sweet Roots NYC will provide healthy GF snacks!

    I thought the meeting was great and great attention was paid to our needs, questions and input. The meetup also has reminded me of the need to pay more attention to what I eat to limit or avoid gluten completely. The snack was also delicious and I was lucky to get the recipe. Everyone seemed pleased and shared information.
