My cup runneth over!
I listed my first vegan lifestyle class in Colorado Springs, Beyond Meatless Mondays: Dive Deeper into Plant-Based Living, with my local MeetUp and then Teresa Farney’s article Vegan Virtues, highlighting the March class, ran in The Gazette this week.
My March class is full and I have a waiting list!
Icing on the vegan cake? Today I’ll be a guest on Table Talk at noon MST on KVOR (AM740) in the Springs. I will be talking with Teresa about the class, which is now full, so I have added an April vegan lifestyle class (two sessions) to my teaching schedule! Based on the response to March class I encourage you to register ASAP.
Beyond Meatless Mondays with JL: Dive Deeper into Plant-Based Living April 10 and 17 in Colorado Springs!
Have you been trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet? Do you struggle with maintaining a plant-based diet at school or work or finding vegan meals at restaurants? Do you want to learn how to veganize your wardrobe, your household cleaning supplies and your health and beauty routine? JL Fields launched the vegan lifestyle class Beyond Meatless Mondays with JL: Dive Deeper into Plant-Based Living. The three-session class begins in the kitchen and extends to your work or other social setting, the grocery store and restaurants, and concludes in your closet and household cupboards. (A two-session class focuses on the kitchen, social settings, the grocery store and restaurants.)
A Colorado Springs-based vegan lifestyle coach and educator and co-author of the forthcoming Vegan For Her: The Women’s Guide to Being Health and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet, JL Fields holds a Master of Science degree in College Student Personnel Administration, has studied Adult Learning Theory at the advanced graduate level, and is currently completing a certificate in fitness nutrition. She served as adjunct faculty at Long Island University-CW Post in New York for five years.
A devoted culinary student and joyful vegan, JL Fields will provide a supportive, small group-learning environment (capacity 12). You will learn from your fellow classmates as your explore issues related to a plant-based diet and a vegan lifestyle. Over the course of the two sessions you will gain skills to cook and eat a balanced and interesting plant-based diet (including meal plan suggestions!) and you will develop strategies for maintaining your plant-based diet at work or school and out in the world.
The class meets on two Wednesdays in April, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., in a fabulous space in downtown Colorado Springs.
April 10: In the Kitchen and on the Plate: Vegan Transition and Cooking Basics
April 17: In the World: Staying Plant-Based at Work or School and in Social Situations
Light vegan, gluten-free refreshments will be served at each session. You can sign up for both sessions or a single session. Individual sessions are $15; take the entire 2-session course for only $25 and SAVE!
Advanced registration is required. Select both sessions or a single session.
