It’s Picnic Time: Vegetarian/Vegan Cooking Workshop – LIVE ONLINE, Interactive with Sheila Wrede
May 16, 2021, @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm HST
It is always a challenge to envision a healthy menu for a holiday gathering. In this workshop before Memorial Day, Sheila will show you how to prepare:
Tempeh Burgers with optional cheese
Vegan Potato Salad
Join Sheila 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 4 people!
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 supports the physical health of the body with good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate sleep can support your immune system in the era of this pandemic that we are all experiencing.
How to Prepare
Come with your curiosity, a cutting board and your favorite knife and spoon for stirring, and let the fun begin. You will need a sauté pan for the Tempeh Burgers as well as a baking pan baking them in the oven. You will also need a pot for boiling the potatoes.
How to Present
When was the last time you used cloth napkins? This is a great opportunity to pick up a new set with your color and style preferences. Jars and water bottles work well for beverages and other liquidy foods, and glass or tin present top alternatives to plastic or throw away containers. It feels so much better to the touch, and can be a significant and easy way to reduce waste.
For a sustainable picnic, find bamboo or other reusable tableware, a blanket you like to use for the outdoors, and some glass jars and/or reusable containers for the food. With these simple items you can have a sustainable picnic that feels great and looks so visually appealing!
