Welcome to the first of four meet-ups. Tonight’s topic: How do I live without dairy? Are you lactose intolerant? Most people are. We lose the ability to process lactose after childhood. Lactose intolerance can be contingent on race and ethnicity too leaving some people with zero ability to digest lactose! For example, did you know Sweden has one of the world’s highest percentages of lactose intolerant people? So, how do you enjoy all those creamy delicious dishes and treats you remember as a kid? I’ll show you. Demos to include making your own almond milk, cashew-based nacho cheese, béchamel and sour cream, a nut-based and a banana-based ice cream. Come early and enjoy our Prepared Foods Department’s Engine 2 plant-strong® hot bar and salad bar before class. Spcae is very limited. Reserve your spot HERE!

Our second meet-up to support our new healthier lifestyle and tonight’s topic: How do I live without meat? Not everyone wants to give up their steaks and that’s okay—No food police here. But reducing your consumption of animal proteins while increasing your plant intake might be just what your body needs. We’re going to make some mock meats but without the sodium and soy of packaged meat substitutes. Demos to include: homemade seitan Italian Sausage, garbanzo bean ‘tuna’ and cauliflower ‘egg’ salad. We’ll also try some of Engine 2’s ready-made burgers that are made from whole grains and beans. Come early and enjoy Prepared Foods Department’s Engine 2 plant-strong® hot bar and salad bar before class. Class size is very limited. Reserve your spot HERE!

It’s the halfway mark with our 3rd Meet-up. Tonight’s topic: How do I live without oil? Yes, fat is important in our diet, but we don’t need to add processed and extracted oils at 120 calories of pure fat per tablespoon and no nutrients. There are whole fats like avocados, nuts, and seeds and, if you do include animal proteins like fish to the list, you certainly don’t need that tablespoon or two of oil. As Dr. McDougall of the Starch Solution says “the fat you eat is the fat you wear”.  Tonight, we will show you how to caramelize onions without oil and make some delicious oil-free dressings like avocado ranch. I’ll have some Organic Girl salads to try and you will get coupons for that product too. Come early and enjoy Prepared Foods Department’s Engine 2 plant-strong® hot bar and salad bar before class. Class size is limited. Reserve your spot HERE!

Going out to dinner with your new-found appreciation for all of the delicious plants and fruits to dine on can be challenging but not for our classroom turned café! You will be served a 5 course meal including dessert—All E2 friendly and Plant-strong®. We will start you off with an appetizer of homemade seasoned kale chips, then Cole’s Cauliflower soup and a lovely spinach salad with a sesame seed dressing, the main course: Gingered Mushrooms, bok choy and carrots with soba noodles and we’ll finish off with sliced strawberries with chocolate sauce. Delicious, nutritious and served on china plates! This is a dinner and not an observation demo. You will receive the recipes and can ask questions about products and preparation, but the object is to sit and enjoy a meal that you know is the perfect meal for your body! Please sign up and pay online to reserve your spot as classroom space is limited. Reserve your spot HERE!
