Healthy Cooking Classes

Healthy cooking classes and healthy eating presentations are our specialty! The mission of Veg Appeal is to promote vibrant health. We want to empower you to make healthy food and lifestyle choices. Our specialty is classes and presentations for busy people.

Themes include:

  • Whole food, plant-based nutrition
  • Simple, everyday cooking
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Lean meals for a lean budget
  • Transitioning from processed to whole foods, and shopping techniques and kitchen organizing

Classes are designed to meet the needs of the particular audience and can be offered in homes, community centers, work places, gyms, schools, or health food stores. We encourage that you plan to take a series of classes highlighting different aspects of healthy eating and food preparation. One-time presentations are also available. Classes may include cooking demonstrations, and participants have the opportunity to taste the delicious food prepared.

Personal Nutritional Counseling

Health education is extremely important to motivate people to best care for their bodies . My profession as a registered nurse calls me to share my wealth of knowledge and experience with others to optimize their health. In the last several years working for our healthcare system, I have noticed a common theme of people being overfed but undernourished. As a nurse who has a previous degree in dietetics, I am passionate about teaching people how to make the right food choices to not only lower their cholesterol, but also prevent heart disease, lose weight, treat and prevent cancer and reduce diabetes. This being said, I want to empower you to make food choices that will lead to optimal health. I desire for you to live the best life you were created for! Many are struggling with chronic diseases and are confused as our society has so many "diet answers" for them. I want to set the record straight for you. Let’s do this together!
