Meal Prep Class 2019

Creating Ease Around Meal Prep - SOLD OUT

join Natural Chef, Nicole Larsen and Nutrition Consultant Laura Halpin

for a hands-on workshop

It's not easy to get nourishing food on the table (and packed for lunch). Between a culture that doesn't value the time it takes to nourish our bodies and the pressure to feed ourselves "healthfully," it's easy to get caught in a place of dread, avoidance and overwhelm.

Even if you love to cook, it is easy to get into a rut and avoidance.

Add in single-parenting, tight budgets, kids in sports or two full-time working parents, and the process can be even more unforgiving.

Feeding ourselves and our families is something most of us have never been taught, but at the same time feel we should be good at it.  The truth: there  are learnable skills involved in regular and reliable nourishment.

If you want to learn ways to set yourself up for more mealtime ease, this workshop is for you. This workshop is designed to help you break down the process of food and meal prep and make it more accessible and REAL for your circumstances.

We will explore tricks for decision making, time management, shopping, preparing, and storing foundation foods to set yourself up for a sane week ahead. Want to stay out of food ruts? We got you.

We will show you how we do it, while considering all the complexities of your obstacles. We will ask about what you already have in place that's working for you. During our time together, we will be cooking up a storm. You will sample some of our favorites and leave with recipes, inspiration and motivation.

Our time together does not include fancy meal plans, pre-printed shopping lists or perfectionism.

We would so love your company during this most practical, supportive and community building event. Please join us.
