Steps to a Healthier Family
Cooking Classes

I REALLY want to help you and your family get healthier this year!  In order to do this, we need to take things one step at a time. I have decided this time around I would teach one class a month, offered several times throughout the month on a new skill or change you can implement in your families diet.  Each change you decide to make monthly from our class will need to become a habit before you will be able to make the next change, so you will have the time to work on it.  Because I will offer the class several times throughout the month, you can pick which day and time works best for you.  If you attend every class throughout our school year, I promise you and your family will be feeling and looking better by next summer! You will be able to grocery shop and cook with confidence! If you can't join us every month, just pay one month at a time, but if you sign up for all eight classes, you will receive one class free ($25 value).

October: What is a Whole Foods Diet?  We will go over my philosophy of eating a whole foods diet and why.  I believe that healthy food should taste good and we should enjoy what we eat.  I will show you how to incorporate some twists on good classics to make them healthier.  We will also go over cooking large batches and how to freeze things well, so on those busy nights you can be ready for dinner in a flash!

November:  What are we drinking?  In this class we will go over the truth behind all of the drinks on the market available to us today (which we all know that we have hundreds of options). We will talk about all types of water, sports drinks, soda, and milks, and which ones are best.  We will also be doing lots of delicious smoothies!  They are a great way to start the day and to curb our sweet cravings.  I never believed that my sweet tooth would go away, but drinking smoothies has changed my life and my cravings!  This should be a fun class you won't want to miss!

December:  Pantry Makeover: Oils, Nuts, Salts, Spices & Sugars  To start cooking healthy, we really need to start with the basics in our pantry.  We will go over all of the oils, nuts, salts, spices, and sugars so that you can know which ones to buy when you are at the grocery store.  You will feel confident when you leave the store because you will know the truth behind each of these products.  We will also be using these great products to make some delicious food!!

January: How do I cook with whole grains? There are so many grains out there that most of us haven't even heard of, namely Amaranth, Kamut, Spelt, Quinoa, etc..  I have been cooking with whole grains for about five years and I absolutely love them all!  There are so many nutritious benefits to cooking with whole grains and I will show you how!  From bread to pancakes to salads!!

February: Great ways to get in more veggies!  Most of us don't get in all the vegetables we need, so I will show you some great ways to get them into your diet!  We will cover some great prepping tips to making our veggies more accessible and even some ways to hide them from your kids :)  This will be a class you don't want to miss!

March: What does your protein look like?  There is so much talk about high protein diets and vegetarian diets. It can be so confusing with all of the information out there.  We will talk about what a whole protein is and how we can get it from sources other than meat, as well as which meat options are the healthiest.  I do still eat meat, but very sparingly, and I will show you some great low-fat, healthy options!  After I cut back on my meat, I started to lose weight and feel better too, so I am excited to share with you what I have learned and how I do it!

April: Curb those sweet cravings: Fruit & healthy snacks!  In this class we will talk about all the benefits of eating a variety of fruits and how to make some fun healthy snacks.  We will also learn how to make low-sugar freezer jam that you will absolutely love!  We all needs snacks throughout our day, so let's explore some fun options of what we can buy at the store as well as make in our own homes that are the healthiest options.

May: Year review & food party!!  After a year of making changes one month at a time, we will review what we have done and what has been successful in each of our families.  After many requests, this last class will cover quick dinners, summer snacks, & how to make your own sprouts!  It will be a great way to end a good year!

Class Fees:  One class $25.  All eight classes $175 ($25 savings)  Held at my home in Mountain Green, UT

I hope you can join me for a year of fun & good food.  It will be a perfect girl's night/day out! It's always nice to have a buddy to be accountable to and to challenge each other. It's also a great gift for a new bride or birthday gift.  So call your sisters, friends, or co-workers and come join us!

  1. I'm so sad I'm not local anymore! I would totally attend if possible. Would ever consider hosting online classes? No pressure :-)

    Very cool idea! I hope they have been successful so far!
