I’m so thankful that I decided to work with you last winter. A lot of what we discussed and the ideas you gave me really took hold. I’m cooking more, and I have easily doubled our intake of vegetables on a weekly basis. I don’t throw away the kale any longer! I go through a bag or two each week. Chickpeas are on a weekly rotation, and I’ve ventured into quinoa and farro. Sometimes for breakfast. My energy, digestive system – even my skin tone – have all improved. All good and so illuminating! It’s not “perfect” (what is?) but I am certainly no longer “failing at food” and that feels great.

I love the cooking classes! There is a great mix of learning, demonstration, discussion, and tasting. I always come away with fresh information, new cooking skills, and tried, tested healthy recipes that I put right into the rotation. Heather’s enthusiasm is contagious – I am enjoying cooking more!
