Join Sheila for a culinary trip to Greece where we will sample dishes that you will love!
Together we will make:
- Cucumber Dill Tzatziki
- Horiatiki (Greek Salad) with Beet Hummus
- Roasted Potatoes with Lemon and Oregano
Join in from your home kitchen for a vegetarian food adventure through the magic of Zoom. By the time you finish this cooking workshop, you will have lovingly prepared a meal for four people! Sheila will also provide you with a recipe in case you want to make for baklava for dessert!
Have you ever considered cooking as a mindfulness practice? Working with Sheila, you learn to maintain a presence of mind: doing your prep work in advance, laying your equipment and materials out to begin with, and moving calmly, cheerfully, with awareness through the cooking process. Mindful eating of your delicious results becomes a natural follow-through to your workshop experience.
Mindfulness practices can enhance your overall well-being. A healthy lifestyle that reinforces the physical health of the body with good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate sleep can support your immune system.
Sheila includes this list for your shopping convenience and suggests that you choose local and/or organic foods whenever available!
