Recap from Healthy 101 Seminar

Last night’s Healthy 101 seminar was great, we had a fun crowd that battled through the terrible storm and traffic to stand around this awesome catering kitchen island and eat fresh food!

this got messy fast!

Everyone was supplied with a cutting board, knife, vegetables, forks, and even some wine as we began our hands on creating, education, and tasting.

What we made & tasted the different flavors of Kale 3 ways.

  • Raw Kale Salad from The Get Real Diet (we learned how tenderizing the kale actually changes the cellular structure of the bitter tough green into a smooth, sweet easy to eat salad).
  • Steamed Kale with Mediterranean dressing.
  • Baked Kale chips for that crunchy fix.

We prepped for success using the following 3 rules:

  1. Choose organic if you can for the dirty dozen.
  2. Shop for 3-4 days of meals rather than trying to prep for a full week and end up with a fridge full of bad produce and no interest in eating it!
  3. Know what you are going to use your veggies for, omelette, salad, roasting, dipping, or blending, then cut & store them appropriately.  Ready to pull out and whip up!

    most of the vegetables for the night, washed and ready!

Everyone left with a pint of Chuice for the next day and a couple of containers full of carrots, zucchini, peppers, and apples for a successful healthy end of the week.

The August seminar will be focused on portion sizes!!  I will have several food items measured out to show what a real portion size looks like and even venture into alcohol!!

Follow me here on this blog to find out when the next one will be.   There will be a donation yoga class prior to the seminar held by Yoga Love so it will be a perfect healthy night.
