Here's how we'll do it!
When you register,you'll get a shopping list and prep video, along with recipes and handouts, so you'll be ready to cook with the group during the morning session.
Then, join me live from your kitchen on April 23rd, and together, we'll make all the fixings for nutrient dense salads that you can easily whip up into endless variations. You'll get to stock your fridge, so it doesn't look like a congested freeway with no passage, but an inviting path to deliciousness.
Here are a few of the things we'll do:
Marinated & Spiced - Lentils - These little gems hold up great in the fridge, are teaming with flavor, and make a perfect protein for any salad, especially when they're cooked just right!
Chickpeas - Nutrient dense, protein rich, and paired to perfection.
Onions - We'll also make quick marinated onions that you'll want to add to... well, pretty much everything.
Hard boiled eggs - Yes, it's simple, but I never veer from my dad's recipe.
Blanched Veggies - When you get these right, you have fresh, vibrant veggies that digest more easily and pair well with literally anything.
Umami Sprinkle - You're welcome! This sprinkle - with nuts, seeds, and nutritional yeast - is worthy of topping most any savory meal, or even being eaten by itself!
Greens - Prepped greens are a game changer. If you struggle with eating the veggies you buy or effortlessly adding vibrant greens to each meal, this prep strategy will help you think differently and get those greens onto your plate.
Sweet & Sour Add Ons - No salad is complete without all the flavors, so we'll set you up to have an easy burst of sweet and acid at your fingertips!
After the lunch break, grab a cup of tea and learn more: Deep Nutrition Lecture with Q&A We’ll take an in-depth look at the nutrients your body needs to truly manage blood sugar, why it's important to nourish and protect your pancreas, and how to best support your cells if they're insulin resistant.
