Next to fruits and vegetables, legumes, including all beans, are the healthiest, most nutrient-dense, healing, protective, and weight-friendly foods. Sadly, statistics show that most people are not eating enough beans or including them regularly in their diet. An optimally healthy diet, however, needs to contain legumes on a daily basis. The challenge for many people, then, is how to eat those beans in easy, practical, and enjoyable ways. In this class, you will learn tips and ideas for how to prepare, cook, and use beans in your meals in a way that provides unlimited variety and satisfaction.
Whole plant foods are the most nutrient-dense and provide us with the most healing and protection benefits for our health. However, what we do to those foods and how we cook them greatly impacts their health potential. In our society, it has become common to routinely cook with oil and add oils to nearly all foods, which introduces us to all kinds of health risks and weight problems. In this class, you will learn that it is not only possible to cook all whole plant foods without oil, but also that it is the most desirable thing to do for optimal health and weight. A quick overview will be provided to know why oils are not ideal additions to an optimally healthy diet and how to tackle cooking grains, beans, vegetables, as well as mushrooms, without any oils.
Green smoothies can make one of the quickest and healthiest snacks or meals for us when they are made with the right ingredients. As green smoothies continue to gain in popularity, however, all kinds of ingredients are being used to make them that should not be part of green smoothies because they diminish their health potential and introduce various health risks. In this class, you will learn how to keep your green smoothies optimally healthy and delicious by learning what ingredients should not be used to make green smoothies.
