So you want to learn how to cook healthy food, but you really don’t want to leave your home to do it? A prestigious Austin culinary school is making it easy for you. Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts is bringing their healthy cooking curriculum to you.
The distance learning program is specifically designed to help students find a convenient path to plant-based cooking skills and a better understanding of healthy eating. These days we all know that eating healthy is essential, but many people don’t know how to properly cook food that is both healthy and flavorful. It’s great to have a program that can teach you these skills from home, it doesn’t get more convenient than that.
“What sets us apart from other online cooking courses is our focus on technique and skills, as well as our non dogmatic health supportive approach to cooking,” Gretchen Upshaw, School Director for Natural Epicurean, said. “We want to teach people how to cook delicious healthy foods for themselves and the their loved ones, while giving them insight and information on the 5 healing modalities.”
In The Cooking For Wellness course, students can explore new and innovative ways to invigorate their health through food and nutrition. The four week course, which can be taken in the morning or evening, is guided by professional chef instructors and health coaches who introduce students to basic knife skills and the 5 Essential Healing Cuisines.
Since the course is taught live, students can directly interact with the professional chefs, in addition to their peers. After the course, students will have a better understanding of plant-based consumption, the body’s relationship to food, as well as how to properly plan healthy meals daily.
“We want to give them the tools and skills to not only make good decisions in regard to their health, but also in their community” Upshaw said.
Nina Seloff, a current Natural Epicurean student, says: “It’s always exciting to expand our knowledge with a group of professionals who are sensitive to student needs and their background. Bravo!”
