Transform Your Holiday Cooking with Whole Foods the Easy Way

175 Real Food Recipes, 30 Holiday Menus, 30 Instructional Cooking Videos, 10 Workshops

Sugar cookies, gingerbread, pumpkin pie, sweet potato casserole …  Seems like an awful lot of sugar, doesn’t it?  As each holiday season rolls around, it seems that white flour, white sugar and other  foods creep their ways into our kitchens, into our kids’ lunchboxes, as we begin to pack on the pounds only to make empty resolutions to “eat better” once New Years rolls around.

Never mind the pressure that accompanies cooking for the holidays: trying to figure out what to bring to the school Christmas party for your grain-free/sugar-free kid or how to serve healthy food that guests to your holiday parties will actually enjoy.


Cooking for the Holidays Used to Fill Me with Dread: the pressure, the stress, the sugar’s true.  While other mothers looked forward to the holiday season.  It used to fill me with dread – I hated them.  I tried countless “healthy” recipes in an effort to avoid the onslaught of sugar over the holidays and they all tasted like cardboard.  It wasn’t until I found the real and traditional foods movement  – devoting myself to its study for the past 6 years – that I found that holiday cooking didn’t have to be stressful.  It was then, after testing recipe after recipe, and developing simple, but healthy and delicious menus that I began to look forward to the holiday season.

I realized it doesn’t have to be stressful – with healthy foods, good techniques and advanced planning – you can take the stress out of holiday cooking and begin serving fresh, real food throughout the holiday season.  I begin to slow-roast my free-range turkeys so they were tender, instead of tough.  I made traditional fermented relishes of cranberries or beets and apples.  I made my kid’s favorite cookies: but with sprouted grains or almond flour and honey.  It got better.

Over the course of those 7 years, I’ve focused my work on the traditional foods movement – both in developing Nourished Kitchen and working as a farmers market manager and cooking instructor.  During that time, I’ve taught thousands of students how to cook real food – and Real Food for the Holidays in another aspect of that work – bringing traditional, whole foods to the forefront of your kitchen this holiday season while also making cooking for the holidays easier and simpler.  Everything’s planned for you. The focus is entirely on healthy, whole foods – traditionally prepared to maximize nutrition.

Made the Best Turkey Ever

I wasn’t sure what I might get out of an online cooking class, but I’m so happy I tried it!  I watched the video on making the turkey and made the best Thanksgiving turkey ever.  I couldn’t believe how tender it was.  My husband loved it and wants me to make it again for Christmas. – Julie S. 

Grain-free, Sugar-free Cookies Kids Love

I send my daughter to school, but I hate that all the school parties seem to serve sugar on top of sugar.  At the same time, I don’t want her to feel singled out or deprived, so I was excited to see your workshop on cookie swaps.  I tried the grain-free, honey-sweetened gingerbread and it came out so good!  I sent the cookies to school with her and all the kids loved them.   – Krista N.

Techniques That Will Be with You for a Long Time

I just want to let you know that I tried this class on a bit of whim.  I thought it might give me some good ideas for Christmas and Thanksgiving.  What I didn’t expect was that I learned so many new techniques, that I still use the cooking videos even though Christmas was months ago.  – Christine H.

Real Food for the Holidays Made the Holidays Easier

I was really unsure whether or not your class was going to work for me. With work and everything, I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen, and was worried that the class was going to be just one more load on my shoulders.  I ended up buying it because I was really stuck for what to make for Christmas Eve Dinner.  The class just made the holidays easier for me. Everything was already done: menu, shopping list, etc.  I ended up using it a lot more than I thought.  – Jenn M.

My Kids Didn’t Feel Deprived

I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your holiday cooking class. First, the menus, shopping lists and recipes made things a lot easier for me.  But what was even more important is that my kids who have multiple food sensitivities and cannot enjoy sugary foods like the rest of their friends finally got to enjoy some healthy holiday treats.  My kids didn’t feel deprived for the first Christmas in a long time.  Thank you for that.  – Amber D.
