COOKING DEMO: Do It Yourself Detox Cooking Class

If our bodies are equipped with their own detoxing mechanics, why do I feel so tired, sluggish, foggy
and bloated not to mention looking a bit dull and rough around the edges? It’s true, our bodies do
detox on their own. But we can overload our bodies, especially during the holidays when dancing
gingerbread and drunken eggnog are running rampant!

Everything we eat and drink goes through our digestion system and processed foods, sugar, alcohol
and general overindulgence ultimately take their toll. Going through a detox or cleanse is a great way
to give our bodies a boost, lighten up, defog, sleep better, gain energy, clear up our skin and
jump-start our path to getting healthier. Cleanses are a process and they aren’t about perfection;
rather think of it as taking a conscious break from everyday indulgences to give your digestion system
a rest.

The great news is that detoxes & cleanses are not just limited to green juices! The process can be a
delicious whole food experience. This class will take you through:
● ways our bodies detox
● raw vs cooked food
● foods that soothe and heal digestion
● juicing vs smoothies
● alkaline vs acid-forming foods
● the power of fermented foods
● anti-inflammatory foods
● 7-day sample menu plan
● designing your detox
● best nutritious detox recipes
● most important supplements and super foods to spend your money on (and where to get

On the menu:
● Kabocha Squash, Ginger & Coconut Bisque
● Cleansing Spiced Carrot Salad with Lemon, Mint and Toasted Almonds
● Braised Red Cabbage with Apples, Celery and Caraway
● Lentil ‘tacos’
● Maca Maple Chia Pudding

Classes led by Culinary Nutrition Expert and Integrative Health Coach Monique Costello are based on
whole, clean food with a focus on anti-inflammatory ingredients. Being Healthy is Finally Delicious!
