Paleo Cooking Class 101-April 19th

Spring has sprung, the grass has ris, I wonder where the…mammoths is?  The Paleo/Primal/Ancestral Health lifestyle has been gaining momentum and popularity since its modern reintroduction, and for bountiful reasons!  Join us to explore just what this movement’s all about, and why those who have drank the honey-sweetened “Paleo Kool-Aid” are coming back for more!

In this demo-cooking class, long-time herbalist and budding Paleo-nutritionist Amy Bousman-Johnson will dispel the many myths surrounding the Paleo diet, how to start and complete a pantry purge, share personal health triumphs (such as putting two autoimmune diseases into remission and losing 35 pounds of inflammation weight within the first four months on the diet!) as well as give useful tips for getting started on this health-altering lifestyle.

We will prepare, cook and joyfully devour a nutrient-dense, Paleo-inspired meal together, utilizing locally-grown, organic goods.  Class will end with time for questions and an opportunity to peruse Amy’s favorite Paleo cookbooks.  Class includes a take-home packet of info including Amy’s favorite Paleo blogs, websites, and a delicious, week-long meal plan to help get you started at home!
