Benefits of Grocery Tour and Cooking Class


What is a grocery tour I’m asked? The grocery tours I give are very detail oriented, they are 90 minutes. I spend at least 45 minutes in the produce section. Many people do not realize all the vegetables and fruits they are overlooking due to FEAR of the Unknown! Understanding when a fruit is ripe, how a vegetable looks that has been sitting around for a week in the store or on the truck, and what to do with the produce is part of the educational process, but that isn’t all. Knowing how long to cook your produce, when it should be cooked after purchasing? Are you able to distinguish the ripeness of a fruit? Do you know how to pick an avocado, when to use it, how to store it so it won’t turn black? The rest of the 45 minutes are in the other parts of the store. learning how to read those food labels, how to tell if fish is fresh, which cuts of meat are the leanest, which are tough? Understanding all the different herbs and which are appropriate for different dishes? Mastery of the different kinds of oils and fats that are offered, which are healthy and which are not. Gain new knowledge about how to shop and save money. Which stores have the best deals. These are some of the benefits of a grocery tour. It will leave you with confidence in shopping, you will shop much more expediently and save money in the process.

Combining a grocery tour with a three hour cooking class will you give the best of both worlds. You will be able to pick out the finest fruits, vegetables, fish and meats and return home and prepare at least 4 complete meals that will leave you read for the week. We can be spontaneous in picking out our selection based upon what looks the freshest, what you want to try, and price. The cooking classes come complete with recipes, tips, and lots of cooking techniques.

The combination is wonderful for those who are newly married or those who want to do something fun together, or with another couple. It is very productive for those with newly diagnosed conditions that need special dietary considerations such as Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, celiac, or other food sensitivity.

GMA this morning – Processed Meats NO!


Much to my pleasure, Good Morning America provided more documentation on the ills of eating processed meats: ham, turkey, salami, baloney, and roast beef. They said that it has been proven that eating more than 1 ounce a week for women and children, and 3 ounces for men can cause heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, and some cancers. They are especially concerned about children taking it for school lunches. Unfortunately for some they suggested that the best lunch for children is peanut butter and jelly on whole grain bread. That would leave the many children with peanut allergies with a BIG problem. I also understand that many school cafeterias are nut free! Some alternatives to the school lunch dilemma are: yogurt with fresh fruit, tomato, cucumber chicken on whole grain bread, tofu with salad, hard boiled eggs with fruit and hummus, cottage cheese and chopped vegetables. If your looking for more help with school or work lunches visit my website or call for a consultation. We can help.
