What’s our number one piece of advice for better sleep, better weight loss, better hormone balance, better moods (and the list is truly endless)? It all comes down to the same tip … cooking real food at home. While many think of cooking as a hobby, it’s really a life-skill that takes practice. If you’re daunted by the “practice” required, fear not. We know that healthy homemade food is often easier said than done, which is why we created our first-ever virtual cooking class covering a variety of topics!
Each class is designed to help you build confidence in the kitchen and take control of your health. Classes are all $25 and are offered virtually a handful of times a month. Pick a topic (or topics!) that interest your style of cooking and get inspired! Classes are held demonstration style, so come with your glass of water or mug of tea and sit back, bring your questions, and be ready to have some fun and get inspired!
Here’s the rundown on the upcoming classes, to enroll click on each title and scroll down to your preferred class.
We all love comfort food, but it can have a bad reputation for being an unhealthy option. Join us for this virtual cooking demonstration to learn tips and tricks for creating healthy versions of your favorites that are still delicious and comforting. You’ll be inspired with new dishes, combining the coziness of comfort food while still getting critical nutrients needed for your health.
