VEGAN COOKING CLASS: HEALTHFUL RESOLUTIONS: LOW-CAL, LOW-FAT, HIGH-FLAVOR
A low-fat vegetarian diet is associated not only with weight loss but also with disease prevention and reversal, including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Though healthful vegetarian diets are naturally lower in calories and higher in fiber than meat- and dairy-based diets, our January class focuses on those delicious dishes that are exceptionally low in fat and calories but high on flavor. We feature mostly local, in-season, organic ingredients.
Join us as we cook up:
*Homemade Hummus Wraps with Roasted Red Peppers

*Fast & Fabulous Fajitas
*German Apple Cake
TASTE TEST: Various types of rice, such as wehani, basmati, forbidden, and more.
