Cooking Lessons

Cooking real, whole foods is critical to a healthy, plantiful life.  For our health, we cannot rely on3766cea86d0158767b2ac6a1744ce716 companies to process our food, or else we find ourselves feasting on a food-like products, which are chuck full of artificial flavourings and colourings, added sugars, too much salt and the wrong kinds of fats and ‘added nutrients’.   We must become the processors, in control of the quality and quantity of ingredients we consume

A key goal for Plantiful Plates is to help people get into their kitchen and learn, or rediscover, how to cook using whole foods as the ingredients.  Plantiful Plates cooking classes include: 5 plant based recipes that will be created and enjoyed, the recipes to keep, a handout outlining the cooking tips and nutritional aspects discussed in the class and tips and tricks throughout that will help you prepare delicious plant-based food. The objective of each class is to provide you with hands on experience and instruction that will give you confidence and inspiration in the kitchen.
