Cooking Class Highlights
This was the first time that I had several ladies over to the house and in my kitchen showing them how to prepare and eat plant-based meals that are gluten-free and HEALTHY for you. I had 6 women sign up and attend. It was so much fun and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. This was a very interactive class with everyone asking lots of questions and making comments – I LOVED it! They were so open and receptive to learning more. The best kind.
Ann Barnes from Mum’s Original was super gracious to offer some of her products for the recipes and to also offer several products for giveaways during the class. Thank you, beautiful ANN! :) Much appreciate your generosity.
I was busy with the food preparation and Scott was busy technical recording of the class. One of the attendees, Darcey, is one of my beautiful friends who is very talented with photography. She brought her quality camera and took pictures throughout the class and of course, the gorgeous food. Thank you, Darcey! You are a talented woman and the pictures were wonderful. So, thanks to Darcey, I am able to share with you all parts of the class. I hope you enjoy!

This green smoothie consisted of water, banana, organic apple, goji berries, chia seeds, organic spinach and NuNaturals Vanilla stevia. Full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, Omega 3′s and super alkaline for the body. Gorgeous!!
Ready to serve and drink! Everyone was OOHHING and AAAWWING over this smoothie. I wanted to start the class off with showing something healthy, simple and fast = green smoothie.
Getting ready to make a kale salad for everyone and talking my LOVE for this leafy green to them. It’s a beautiful bouquet and you can eat it.
“Massaging” the kale into a soft, easily digestible salad and talking about the energy of your emotions when preparing food.
The magic ingredient to the kale salad – chipotle pepper.
Ready to eat. Everyone cleaned their bowls and loved it.
My handsome technical and sous-chef assistant. Scott with the video taping setup in the back of kitchen.
Stuffed roasted peppers with veggies and quinoa topped with avocado chunks. This dish was a huge HIT and surprise to many. They couldn’t believe that there was no meat in it and it tasted fantastic and so filling. SCORE!!
Linda won the Mum’s Original Organic Quinoa giveaway!
Making non-dairy, nut-free ice cream. YUM!
Vanilla ice cream made with a few ingredients in just minutes in the Vitamix.
My beautiful yoga classmate and friend, Sheena, won the Mum’s Original Cacao nibs.
Raw cacao truffles in the works.
Everyone put on gloves and got to roll their own truffles and dip into the different toppings: macaroon coconut flakes, chia seeds, cacao powder/cayenne mix. What wasn’t eaten, I split up and ladies got to take home.
Raw cacao truffles! Need I say more.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. The WHOLE class and time was a highlight to me. I feel so grateful and blessed that there are people who want to learn more to improve their quality of life through diet and graced me with their time and presence to show them what I know, have learned and how Scott and I eat daily. I plan on doing more of these classes – once a month or maybe more if the demand is there. I have tons to teach and share. I already have the next meal recipes planned out for the next class. It is going to be amazing! Let me know if you want to attend these classes and I will reserve you a seat in the kitchen.
