Learning to cook

Friday, March 03, 2017

I just started a 3 month vegan cooking course - today I'm working on knife skills. While I doubt that I'm ready to become 100% vegan, I'm hoping, by learning cooking and knife skills, I will learn how to make healthier food. I'm very excited to begin this journey!

    Learning new things in the kitchen for me is always enjoyable. I like to cook with fresh ingredients, and grow some of my own herbs to use in my cooking. I like to spend time reading cook books that are instructional in nature and talk about the science of cooking. Recently, I have picked up the Whole 30 cookbook....lots of great vegetarian recipes in there to try, and on my "to do" list during our Challenge.

    How are you liking your learning about vegetarian lifestyle and cooking?

    Barbara - I didn't quite understand Teresa's answer to your question, but I thought that 1/2 cup cooked veggies and 1 cup raw veggies was the rule of thumb. It is somewhere in SparkPeople.

    I have been vegetarian for 20 years and vegan for 18 of those. It is definitely a different mindset when you start. A little while after I became vegan I realized life was in danger of becoming one big endless stir-fry so I went looking for some vegan cookbooks. If you are interested in the names of some of my go to ones let me know. Have fun at your cooking class!
