Nutrition and Cooking Classes
We offer free nutrition and cooking classes to high schools, colleges, churches, businesses and other civic and community groups. Classes usually include a presentation on the health benefits of a vegetarian diet, concern for the environment and animal welfare. Cooking classes are also available.
Free Vegetarian Classes
In these FREE classes you’ll learn why and how to give yourself the vegetarian advantage for preventing and reversing many common diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. Discover the vegetarian advantage for the environment, the world’s hungry and all the other living creatures who share the world with us. Learn how to make sustainable changes to your diet while enjoying the journey. This well-researched class gives you information you can rely on. Come and get answers to your questions!
The class also includes a delicious vegetarian cooking demonstration. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the food we eat and to sample delicious food all in one fun filled afternoon. Classes are based on our popular books The Vegetarian Solution, Say No to Meat! and The Veg-Feasting Cookbook.
Cooking with Amanda
Amanda Strombom, President of Vegetarians of Washington, gives regular cooking classes to support those interested in moving toward a plant-based diet and learning new ways of preparing food avoiding animal products. Each class focuses on a different aspect of going veggie, whether it’s on specific food groups, on a particular health topic, shopping or even holiday cooking. Plenty of samples to taste are always provided. See upcoming classes below.
Cooking classes are held at East Shore Unitarian Church, Bellevue, 7pm unless otherwise noted. A nominal charge of $5 per class helps us cover the cost of the ingredients and materials. Shopping tours are free.
Many opportunities to learn will be available at Vegfest on March 30 & 31, 2019 with doctors giving talks on nutrition and health, and chefs giving cooking demonstrations throughout the weekend. Learn More.
We will be scheduling more classes after Vegfest.
