Go vegan with The Vegan Chef

She's got your health in mind

GUILFORD – Chef Mary Lawrence, of Well on Wheels, will hold a vegan cooking class called “Healthy Eating for the New Year” beginning at 7 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Guilford Senior Center.
The class is intended to teach participants how to make "delicious whole foods meals that will be enjoyed by everyone," from one diner to an entire family, Lawrence said.
The session will include a cooking demonstration, meal planning ideas, kitchen shortcuts, and shopping tips.
At the end of the evening, attendees will enjoy a quick and easy recipe prepared by the instructor.
“The meals are just incredible – so delicious, beautiful to look at and a pleasure to put in my body,” said student Jean Vogel. “I am aware of feeling better, physically, after eating them… my appreciation for her artistry just keeps growing.”
Lawrence said she works with clients to adjust their diet by cooking foods that are organic, unrefined, plant-based and free from common allergens. "Many people want to improve their health through dietary changes but they don’t know where to begin," she said.
But the class, she said, will help people be more healthful, and "how to get started on the path to wellness.”

You know, being vegan isn't much different than being vegetarian. You just have to read more labels and adjust your recipes a little bit.
