Legumes!!! Cooking with Beans Workshop

Beans are one of those things that can make a huge difference in your health and well-being just by adding them to your weekly eating plan. And we'll go over a bunch of different ways to integrate them into your every day life easily. This workshop will lead to better overall health. Beans have been missing from the typical American diet and people have strange opinions of them, but they are delicious, easy to digest when prepared properly, and nourishing on many, many levels. We'll do a selection of fabulous bean dips, refreshing bean salads (great for packing for work or school lunches), and a big variety of other recipes which will integrate beans in easy and tasty ways!

Dressing Your Salad - Creating Dressings Workshop

Friday, September 12th 2014, 11 am - 1 pm

This time of year, especially in a nice cool summer like this one has been, we harvest lots of great salad greens and sometimes need some new ideas and flavors in our dressings for spicing them up! Bottled salad dressing is one of the biggest wastes of money - they are overpriced and usually full of corn syrup, cheap oils, and chemical preservatives, not to mention that most of them are sold in dangerous plastic bottles. It is SO EASY and QUICK to make your own dynamic and health-promoting salad dressings and that what we'll do together in this workshop. You'll go home with a new set of recipes and the skills for designing your own new recipes. I believe the dressing should add nutrition and balance to the greens - the fats and proteins help the nutrients and minerals in the greens get fully absorbed and metabolized by the body. Workshop is hands on and tasting is encouraged - Cost is $36 ($39.50 online)| Registration closes 9/9/14

Featured in the NY Times! Check out the article here! And we were just featured in Orange Magazine! (Page 53) Check it out online here!

Healthier, Economical, Delicious. Either as a supplementary meal or as your pets' regular diet, homemade food is better, safer, and easy to make. We will mix up a batch of balanced food using raw chicken as a base. We'll go over tons of options in food bases - raw vs cooked, various nutritional additions, dogs vs cats, special needs pets, and discuss the wide range of commercial diets and brands. You'll take home recipes, a clearer knowledge of the commercial pet food available, and resources for suppliers. We'll also make up a wonderful whole foods supplement that you can add to a commercial diet using higher quality ingredients and for a lot less money than the fancy brand names.
