Every fall Nature’s Pantry offers a cooking class and sampling meal that promotes cooking from scratch and using unprocessed foods from our bulk bins. This class has been a great success and this is the fourth year we have offered it. This is part of spreading our mission of helping our customers find and maintain vibrant health!
This class offers you an insight into a “Whole Plant Based Diet” comprised of eating foods in their fresh and unprocessed form. The mainstay of a Plant Foods Diet is whole grains, legumes (beans), nuts, seeds, and organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables..
The majority of Americans today are pushed for time and the result can be eating too many fast and processed foods. Many of these foods are high in trans fats, sodium, preservatives, food colorings or high fructose corn syrup. We see people every day that are looking for alternatives for eating healthier but don’t know how to cook with unprocessed foods that are not found in a box. Many customers have said they would eat better if they only knew how to cook with bulk foods and could taste them. This is your opportunity!.
This class will help teach you how to cook healthy meals, using simple ingredients, that are economical and quick to prepare. We will give you recipes, ideas on planning your meals, and teach you how to do some prep work ahead of time. Your meals will not only taste good but be more enjoyable, knowing that you did it all yourself with wholesome ingredients.
Some of the recipes will include foods such as: quinoa, black beans, chick peas, red beans, black caviar lentils, country wild rice, chia seeds, millet, cashews, fresh spices and herbs, coconut flour, almonds, pure maple syrup, and the list is too long to mention them all. It will be nutritious, delicious, fun and time well spent.
