Cooking Classes

Learn Healthy Cooking from a Certified Professional Chef & Certified Culinary Educator

Get WEll, Be Well,

 

Learning to cook can be a lot of fun. Cooking your own food puts you in control of what and when you eat.

Additionally, you know what is in your food.

Knowing what is in your food is key to a successful diet program. If you want to go on a Ketogenic, Paleo or other low carb diet, the success of your diet is in jeopardy every time you eat out. The amount of hidden sugar in restaurant food in alarming.

If your doctor has told you to limit sodium, fat sugar or any other prescribed diet, to be successful in reaching the desired outcome, you need support and guidance. Cooking classes become part of the success formula: Learn what to eat, how to cook it and how to plan meals – from what to buy and when to eat it.

Our classes cover a wide range of healthy cooking. No matter what diet theory you subscribe to, we can create meal plans and classes for you. 

A new diet isn’t a sentence, it is an opportunity to explore what you CAN eat. Learn new recipes and cooking methods that put you in charge of your food. It is easy, once you know how.
