Healthful Life MD Healthy Eating Series

Make Your Vegetables Sing!


girl-picking-vegetables-300x200by Dr. Abby L. Bleistein, and Chef Jamie Daugherty

March 11th, 2016 – 5:30-8:30 pm

Cost: $75/person or child over 10 with their grownup- $125/couple

In this class, as food for thought, Justin Ross, licensed clinical psychologist from MindBodyHealth, will discuss mindfulness and meditation for life-long wellness. The class will then explore the seasonality of vegetables–the nutritional and flavor benefits of eating vegetables in season. With hands-on instruction, we will create a bright, flavorful, anti-oxidant rich frittata, fast enough for breakfast every day of the week. We will learn to make a basic vinaigrette dressing and explore the versatility of the dressing as we develop exciting flavors with different vinegars and herbs. We will create a salad that is anything but boring, good for lunch or for an impressive meal with friends. We will learn a fail-proof method to roast vegetables to maximally enhance flavors. We will create a healthy lunch and dinner plate which will make getting your 5 servings of vegetables daily seem like an adventure rather than a chore. Our Chef instructors, from Johnston and Wales University, will be teaching proper knife skills in this course so you will be on your way to preparing healthy, tasteful meals quickly and easily to enjoy everyday!

Please bring to this class a cutting board, a chef’s knife, and a paring knife and be prepared to cook!
