Healthy Shopping Workshop Tuesday, April 19 6:00-9:00pm $45.00
Holly’s popular class will give you the education you’ve been longing for.
Grass fed, pastured, organic, free-range, natural- it all gets very confusing.
Join Holly for this informative 2 hour seminar about how to shop for the healthiest ingredients, how to read labels, how to store your chosen ingredients, how to plan your menus to prevent waste, which oils are the healthiest to cook with and so much more. With plenty of time to have your questions answered, you will leave this class with a packet of information sure to help you on your next trip to the grocery store or farmers market. Cooking is great but before you go to your kitchen to prepare your meals, you have to shop and it can be down right confusing! Join Holly and you will feel relieved and demystified. She will give you some recipes to take home as well.
