Whole Foods Market Value Tour

At Whole Foods we believe everyone should be able to afford to eat quality food. Some think higher quality means higher price, but think again! We have secrets to share! The first step toward eating better on a budget is spending your money on actual food so you get the most nutrition for your buck. Cheap food is usually made from cheap ingredients, often including synthetic preservatives and dyes. We offer real food, free of artificial ingredients and hydrogenated fats at the best price possible, especially when you know where to look. Join us for our “value” tour. You'll discover you can afford to shop Whole Foods on a budget.

Value Meals

Immediately following the Value Tour Chef Chris Chisholm will be demonstrating recipes that you can use to create delicious, healthy and inexpensive meals at home. Using these shopping methods and recipes Chris fed his family for only $200 a month. Samples will be served.

Lecture and knowledge class – All Ages

Dark green vegetables are, calorie for calorie, probably the most concentrated source of nutrition of any food. Green foods are necessary to support most bodily functions such as energy production and eliminating toxins we take in through unhealthy food, tap water, medications, candida, and more -  which can weaken our tissues and lead to disease. Maybe you’ve had plenty of spinach, romaine and spring mix to last you a lifetime. Well, it’s time to branch out! This class will empower you to put together easy, fast, and tasty recipes as well as help you  understand The Power of Green Foods! 

On the Menu:

Power Breakfast  Smoothie

Fresh Almond Milk

Spinach and Apple Soup

Zucchini Pasta with Pesto

Burdock Salad

This presentation will show you how important and simple it is to incorporate whole, unprocessed plant food into the typical, wildly busy, modern lifestyle for optimal individual health, and also to create real healthcare reform, which is keeping people well in the first place and reversing chronic diseases (heart disease, diabetes, obesity, etc.) with proven plant-based approaches. Kirk will give a short presentation where you can see the obvious “6” dietary pattern changes over the last 100 years in the United States which have set the stage for our healthcare crisis and some basic diet principles of good nutrition emphasizing a micronutrient dense diet. Then he will quickly prepare his plant-based staples. These include “.Kirk’s Super Morning Smoothie”; “Super Salad as a Main Meal”; his “Super Smooth, Low Fat, Low Glycemic White Bean Hummus”; and his “15 Minute Hardy Vegetable, Bean and Rice Soup!” After the class Kirk will be available for Q & A and all those who come will get a free signed copy of his book, “Staying Healthy in the Fast Lane.”
