Grain-Free Goodies! - A Health Starts Here Cooking Class
Monday, December 2nd
7:00 PM
In our Lifestyle Center, FREE

Whole grains are fiber- and nutrient-rich foods that certainly have a place in a healthful diet. But we don't need to load up on grains with every meal. Camille will demonstrate three plant-based, grain-free meal ideas - breakfast, lunch and dinner - to help you keep variety in your healthy diet. A Cashew Tofu and Red Pepper Scramble with Sweet Potato Hash will keep you going strong all morning. Try some Healthy Lunch Wraps that skip the traditional tortilla in favor of nutrient-dense chard and collard leaves. And finish off with a bowl of Spaghetti Squash "Pasta" with a hearty Lentil-Primavera Sauce.

All Healthy Eating events are meant for guests age 16 and above unless otherwise indicated. Space is limited. To pre-register, please visit Customer Service or call 305-421-9421.

Hearty Holidays - A Health Starts Here Cooking Class
Monday, December 9th
7:00 PM
In our Lifestyle Center, FREE

Even here in sunny South Florida, the winter months make us crave dishes we can really sink our teeth into. In this Health Starts Here class, Camille will show you how to make satisfying plant-strong dishes that will help carry you through those "chilly" 70-degree winter days. Try a whole grain sandwich, stuffed with veggies and plant-protein rich tempeh, smothered in a date-sweetened Health Starts Here-approved barbeque sauce. Feel nourished and energized with an Indian-spiced bowl of chili. And for dessert, we'll dig into a hot slice of oil, egg and dairy-free apple pie - much lighter than its "normal" counterpart, and super delicious!
