Perceptions in Healthy Cooking Cookbook by Valerie Wilson review
Perceptions in Healthy Cooking is a whole foods and vegetarian cookbook resulting from over 5 years experience creating and perfecting these dishes.
This cookbook has many tasty dishes in six sections: Whole Grains, Beans, Tofu & Tempeh, Vegetables, Soups & Salads, Breakfast & Beverages and Desserts. Each section has an introduction on that category of foods with tips, facts and ideas.
There are 125 mouth-watering recipes offered in this healthy cookbook. Some of the recipes you will find include: Stuffed Peaches, Delicata Bisque, Cinnamon Raisin French Toast, Pasta With Peanut Sauce and Mixed Greens Stir-Fry to name a few.
You will not find just recipes here. There are some of Valerie Wilson's own poetry included along with pages of information on whole foods, tips, suggestions and an index. This is an educational book for anyone interested in healthy cooking. Ms. Wilson expresses deep convictions in whole foods and backs it up with comments on her research findings.
Macro-Val's Healthy Cooking is the name of the cooking classes offered by Valerie Wilson in Westland Michigan and also on VHS or DVD. Each class includes:
Hands-on experience - you participate in preparation of food
Learn cutting techniques like matchstix, dicing, and more.
Nutritional information on the ingredients used
At the end of the class you get to enjoy the food you helped to make!
They are held in a home for a more home like atmosphere.
While you are on the site look around at the other things she offers such as one on one counseling where you sit down with her and together you plan a nutritional approach to a healthier you taking into account present health issues and including other tools such as relaxation and more. This is a unique opportunity and I would definitely take advantage of that if I were in the area. She also has personal chef opportunities, events listings and is presently working toward a tv show which I am looking forward to hearing about in the near future so if you or anyone you know would like to look into that I'm sure she would be happy to tell you more.
