You Are What You Eat

You are what you eat was the theme of a two-part cooking class held at Five Falls Christian School in Great Falls, Mont. Dana Wallace, graduate of the Natural Gourmet Cookery School in New York City, and her mother, Connie Melashenko, gave cooking classes on plant-based cuisine. Wallace talked about eating a natural diet and the connection between our modern refined foods diet and diseases, raising awareness of health and lifestyle choices.

Since eating breakfast is the most important food decision you can make each day for good health, part one of the cooking class dealt with quick-to-prepare, plant-based breakfast foods.

Dinner and dessert were the topic of the second cooking class with tips on seasoning, cooking vegetables and preparing desserts using fruit and grains. Wallace discussed food products that are tasty and good for you that could be stocked in every pantry.

Recipes and cooking tips were shared with participants.
