Learn that health-promoting foods, recipes, and meals can be easy, convenient and tastes great!  Each 90 minute class INCLUDES: LIVE, in-class food demos and hands-on cooking with Stefanie's in-depth food prep knowledge, Q&A, recipes, educational materials all in a supportive group setting.  Enjoy heavy samples and the opportunity to taste healthful, plant-based dishes. Recipes are designed to work for people on a budget who may also have minimal time or access to equipment. More importantly, each ingredient supports a low-fat,  plant-based diet plan that has been proven to prevent, manage, and in some cases reverse chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune disease, and even some forms of cancer. 


This event is hosted by Pantspiration and taught by Stefanie Ignoffo, a licensed Food For Life instructor with the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine. 


Food for Life is an award-winning nutrition education and cooking class program that provides an innovative and evidence based approach to diet-related chronic diseases. Designed by physicians, nurses, and registered dietitians, Food for Life promotes healthful eating based on the latest scientific research.
