Official Forks Over Knives Community Program
The inspirational, life-changing documentary, Forks Over Knives has propelled many to shake up their lifestyles and adopt a plant-based diet to improve their health. Sometimes that is challenging to do when a support system is not in place. In this Forks Over Knives approved official 6-week program, we will explore the aspects of a whole food, plant-based diet, how to talk with friends and family, how to re-structure your kitchen, how to go out and eat and remain social without adding stress to you and those around you and so much more. This program runs a few times a year in the St. Louis area, please contact me via the Contact Form for more information.
The most effective way to learn anything is by just doing it. I will arrive at your home with a menu specifically written for you and your guests. You'll make everything from appetizer to dessert and I will offer tips, tricks and culinary inspiration as you cook. Afterward, you'll sit down with your party and enjoy the fruits of your labor. It's great education and entertainment with your favorite people! This makes for a great Girls Night Out, neighbor get-together, or any reason you just want to learn how to cook a really healthy plant-based meal in the comfort of your own kitchen. Available in the metro St. Louis area.
