I am so excited to speaking at the LDS Holistic Conference this year!! I am excited to just go too! I hope I can squeeze in some classes- there are lots I want to go to!

Here are the classes I am teaching:

Get excited about cooking healthy and tasty meals! Learn how to incorporate healthier foods into your diet and actually want to eat them! I will share 10 things you CAN start doing right now and the knowledge behind WHY you want to start doing these things. The are easy and doable changes for anyone!! There will be some blending/grinding demonstrations. You will leave loaded with tons of tips and I will email you some handouts and recipes to help with your change!

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:

  • Know the importance of whole foods in your diet and the benefits from them
  • Know how to make better choice with what you have
  • Know how preparation and goal making assist in changes you want to make
  • Know how to get the most out of your smoothies
  • Know how to and what to sneak into your diet and why
This class is everything and anything you wanted to know about Grains and psuedocereals... What? Many of these are actually pseudocereals which means they are not a true grain which means they are HEALTHIER.

We will get into wheat, spelt, quinoa, buckwheat , millet, amaranth, oats, rice and barley- and some seeds- flax, chia, sesame etc. For those wanting to learn more about healthy grains this is a great class for you AND for those intolerant of gluten this is a great way to learn about all the other yummy things you can have!!! I will teach you everything I can about them!! Nutritional content and how to prepare and grind them. Also I will show you how to SPROUT them and how to grow your own Wheat Grass! Wheat grass is wonderfully healthy to drink or for cuts- YES cuts!! Wheat grass has lots of uses and is a GREAT addition to any food storage. You want to know how to use this!!!

I think you may be a little surprised what you can do with all of these and how yummy they can be!! I will also email you lots of handouts and a great little cookbook of some favorite dishes with all kinds of grains.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:

  • Explain why white flour is not a healthy choice
