Event Description

Can you eat a healthy, well-balanced, diet without meat protein? The Nutritious Delicious Cooking Seminar shows how!

This Nutritious Delicious cooking seminar will focus on the topic of Vegetarian & Vegan: Healthy Ways to Eat a Plant-based Diet.
It is part of a series of various seminars covering both very basic and easy advanced culinary skills - from wild game to beans and grains.

Held roughly every other month on a topic related to the season, these sessions are designed to assist those interested in eating with the freshness of the season -- which is especially helpful when the food budget gets a little low.

This workshop will educate participants on how to eat a well-balanced diet consisting of only vegetarian or vegan fare. It will emphasize the nutritional needs of this population necessary to thrive. Various concepts and approaches to vegetarianism will be discussed, including raw diets, macrobiotic precepts and more.

Workshop presenters Paula Youmell and Rajiv Narula will share cooking tips and various techniques as well as the health benefits of eating "low on the food chain," as might best be illustrated by the original USDA Food Pyramid. Local author, health educator and Counselor, Paula Youmell (RN, MS, CHC) states: "Healthy eating and healthy lifestyle choices are positive, preventive medicine. Knowledge of nutritional information is key to your choices."

Due to limited space, it is necessary to RSVP for the location of this workshop. Email to (preferred) or call (315) 347-4223. A suggested donation of $15 is requested from attendees who are able, $5 student, scholarships available upon request.
