There is more than one way to make a veggie burger – but there’s one thing that certain – a homemade burger is better than any processed product you will find! The great thing is that most veggie burgers freeze well, so you can make a big batch to freeze, adding the convenience factor to the taste and nutrition advantages! In this class we will make several different scratch veggies burgers – one using a nut base, one using a bean base, and one using a mushroom base, so that you can see how versatile and full of variety veggie burgers can be – and how easy it is to make a fresh, nutritious burger right at home. If you’re a veggie burger fan, but you are looking for a healthier option than your average meat burger/store-bought veggie burger, come check this class out!

LOCATION: Senior’s Centre Kitchen 6792 Cranberry Street

Greens are an incredibly important part of a healthy diet; they are the most nutrient dense foods we can eat, and they have the ability to prevent some of the most common chronic health issues we face in our society today. Are you getting a couple of cups of greens in your daily diet? In this class we will review the nutritional power of greens and why they are so important, as well as ideas for getting more of them into your day. Then we will make a few different recipes, including a smoothie/juice, and creative (and tasty) raw and cooked entrees, so you can see how easy it can be to boost your daily intake and meet that 2-cup quota.
