Eating Clean for Busy People

pea soupValley’s Center for Integrative Medicine is now hosting cooking classes with a “clean” theme featuring internationally trained chef Carrie Weiss. What is eating “clean?” It’s eating with purpose and intention. Learn how food affects our overall well-being during two cooking series held in Valley’s teaching kitchen.

Eating “clean” fuels the body with high-quality foods such as fruits, raw and cooked vegetables, sustainable fish, lean grass-fed and organic animal proteins, healthy fats, nuts and seeds and certain complex carbohydrates. Additionally, eating healthy foods can help the body to function properly and increase immune system performance.

Carrie will teach Deliciously Clean Gourmet participants to make a 3-course meals served each course as it is prepared. Recipes will be created with the freshest, organic, sustainable, and wholesome ingredients possible. Carrie will provide tips and tricks and shortcuts, and answer questions about clean eating in a relaxing and entertaining environment. She will also discuss the philosophy that we should shop for our food and eat it with mindfulness and intention. All of the recipes are designed to fit into our busy lives and help establish new nutritious and nourishing eating habits.

Heavy sauces will be replaced with light emulsions made with herbs and vegetable purees.
Soups will be vegan based and still be creamy delicious.
Some recipes will only use 3 ingredients and no extra fats.

Carrie believes that we eat with our eyes first, so participants should be ready to experience food as a tasteful and colorful culinary art form!
