Course Description

Whole grains and pseudo-grains, when prepared in the traditional way (as our ancestors did), offer to be healthful and delicious additions to your diet. They are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, that help maintain the health of your human ecology system! When you add meatless meals to your diet, you can help to protect and preserve some of the natural resources that are being destroyed by industrial meat production, and reduce the effects of climate change, according to United Nations and the University of Chicago. In this course module, I will show you how to prepare some of my favorite gourmet lunch and dinner recipes. See the list of savory recipes below, that I will demo for you!
