    Picture of Plant based food prep-copyright N. TravisA whole food plant-based diet is a proven health winner!  Sometimes the barrier for people to adopt this way of eating can be figuring out how to prepare simple yet delicious, healthy meals without spending the day in the kitchen. Chef Nancy Travis will teach you that meal prep, kitchen organization and careful shopping is the answer. There is no “one way for everyone” approach as each household has its own requirements for space, preparation time and the amount of food needed. Join plant-based chef Nancy Travis as she gives you her best tips for creating an individualized plan for quick, simple, everyday, whole food plant based meals that work for your family's needs.

    Please Note:  Foods will be determined by Nancy the day of the second class (depending what she needs to prep for her family) but recipes and resources list will be emailed after the class to all who attend. 

    Session 1: 
    In this first session (
    no cooking) you’ll go through Nancy’s kitchen (virtually) where she will show you her fridge and kitchen storage and discuss ways to set up your own kitchen for success. This includes information about kitchen essentials like appliances, equipment, pantry staples, containers, and tips for saving time.  Nancy also offers ideas for food storage for your veggies, grains and beans, with an emphasis on keeping things fresh and ready to go!  Nancy will go over different ways to prep meals depending on your family size and available time, and, how to think about creating meals in the most healthful way. Conversation will also include eating for weight loss and weight maintenance (usually fairly easy once on a plant based diet!).  

    Session 2 (note this session starts at a different time than first session): 
    The second session will be cooking and prepping demonstration where Nancy will put together a variety of foods to be used for meals or meal components.  You’ll gain ideas for easy ways to put together prepped foods to create delicious meals for your family.  Learn healthy cooking techniques such as no oil sauteing, and roasting and a demonstration of both.  Nancy also teaches you the benefits of and about instant pot cooking and air frying.  

    Foods will be determined by Nancy the day of the class (depending what she needs to prep for her family) but recipes and resources list will be emailed after the class to all who attend. 

    During class there will be time for questions and discussion about meal prep as well as how to maintain a healthy whole food plant based diet.

    Picture of Plated Kimchi with Soft boiled egg on topFusion foods are found in every corner of our lives today, even the old standby of Fish & Chips was developed as a fusion food, combining Jewish, French, and Belgian cuisine. When Shibaguyz first tried Kimchi Fried Rice with Kalua Pork they had no idea it would be something so special that they learned how to make it themselves just so they could have it whenever they were overtaken by the craving to have it! Just think of it… the tart bite of the kimchi mixed with the rich, salty/smokey, savory flavor of the slow roasted pork. All mixed up together with a savory sauce over perfectly fried rice then finished with a topper of a soft poached egg that breaks and drizzles its yolk-y richness throughout the dish as you take your first bite. 

    If this  makes you wish you had your own big bowl of Kimchi Fried Rice with Kalua Pork, join the Shibaguyz on Zoom LIVE from their home  kitchen and they will  take you through the steps of making this craveable perfect fusion of flavors for yourself… or your family if you are willing to share!

    This is a live, virtual hands-on cooking class from the comfort of your own kitchen. The Shibaguyz will make cooking fun, interactive, as well as hands on. Follow along, ask questions, interact with others just like you would if you were in the BARN Kitchen.
