A Beginner's Guide to the Art of Cooking

This is a new class designed to support those of you who are struggling with The Art of Cooking. We will be using a wonderful text called The No Recipe Cookbook by Susan Crowther. Here is what her description of the process includes: Crowther takes the intimidation factor out of cooking. Her creative approach to preparing meals focuses on the basics: philosophies, ingredients, and procedures. Without a single recipe, you’ll learn to make everything from soups, salads, sauces, baked goods, and nutritious meals, featuring whole foods and meat alternatives (“meetz”), like eggplant and mushrooms. Once armed with the basics, you’ll be free to experiment with confidence and have fun in your kitchen!

We will have the book in our store for pre-order. And Most exciting, Susan will be in the classroom with us. I have invited her to test drive our process of teaching. I love the book, I love her approach and I want all of you to get an introduction to what I think can be an incredible support to your success with the program.

Insulin resistance is a key component in gaining weight and being vulnerable to diabetes.
