Powered By Plants: Intro to Plant-Based Cooking with Chef LaDonna Johnson
What does it mean to eat a “plant-based diet?” And if protein doesn’t come from meat, where the heck will it come from? And will it taste good and satisfy? Whether you are vegan, doing the Meatless Mondays thing or you are interested in a complete change to cleaner eating, this powerhouse of a class will help you get there.
Chef LaDonna Johnson is an experienced plant-based cook, which makes her the perfect person to give you the information you need, not only about what it means to eat this way but how to make it happen.
Today, she’ll teach basics like how to prepare a weekly plant-based/vegan menu on a budget, and more. Chef LaDonna understands that the ingredients can be a little intimidating, that folks want to purchase them but don’t know where to start, and they don’t want to waste a lot of money on ingredients that they might not use again. She gets it and is eager to show you how it’s done.
Come soak in the knowledge as she shows you how to navigate through delicious plant-based dishes while exploring protein substitutes and other interesting swaps. The 'keeper' dishes you learn this morning are sure to change the way you feed yourself and your family, as you learn the basics and gain the confidence needed to cook for a plant-based lifestyle.
Bring your questions and prepare to take lots of notes in this informative, healthy-cooking class.
