Join Us for An Exciting
Event and Tasty Food 


Now that summer is winding down and the kids are back in school, please join Caroline Graettinger and I for the second in a series of cooking demonstrations and food samplings.  Our goal is to help you to improve your health and how you feel by changing what you put on your plate.  We will provide you with practical suggestions of how to begin to make changes and then show you how to prepare a selection of simple but delicious plant-based meals.  You'll take home with you an action plan and these recipes from the evening's tasting:

  • Hearty Whole Grain Pumpkin Pancakes
  • Tim's All-Star Red White and Blue Stick-to-your-Ribs Freedom Oats!
  • Minute-Strone Soup
  • Sloppy Joes
  • Potato and Corn Chowder
  • Mac N Cheeze
  • Chocolate Date Nut Pudding

Whether you are a seasoned vegan looking for some new ideas, are new to the lifestyle and not sure what to make, or just looking to enjoy plant-based meals once or twice a week, this event is for you!

Surviving the Holidays...Plant-Based Style

Back by popular demand, Jason Withers and I will be teaming up again for our second cooking demonstration and food sampling at Atria's Peters Township.

In order to provide Jason with enough room to fully demonstrate his plant-based cooking techniques, we will have to reduce the number of people able to attend the event so register early to guarantee that you and your friends will be able to attend!

Whether you will be entertaining this holiday season or attending holiday parties, we will show you how to enjoy this time of year without compromising your new lifestyle and how good you feel as a result.

Our goal is to keep you on track so that one of your New Year's Resolutions doesn't have to be to climb back on the wellness wagon!

Cheesy Cauliflower Sauce
From Susan Voisin

Susan has asked that her recipes not be re-posted.  The following link will take you right to it:


This is a lighter sauce than those made with cashews and can be used in place of a dairy-based cheese sauce such as drizzled over vegetables and baked potatoes or mixed with pasta.

It is delicious, easy to prepare, and a hit with kids!
