Clean in '15: Go! Boosting Energy

  • The Chopping Block Merchandise Mart The Merchandise Mart Plaza, Suite 107 Chicago, IL 60654 (map)

The Clean in '15 holistic nutrition cooking series focuses on cooking techniques, ingredients and nutrition to help build a vibrant, whole foods-based diet. Each class features realistic weekday recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack and more.

What couldn't you do with more energy? Unfortunately many of our go-to energy boosts--caffeine, sugar, even protein shakes--can actually deplete our energy by spiking and lowering our blood sugar too rapidly. In this class, we'll go through the basics of how to eat for vibrant, long-lasting energy

Students will learn which "healthy" foods might be slowing them down and how to construct a meal or snack so that it provides sustaining energy. No food comas here! Chef Alia will highlight some new superstars in your pantry that have been hiding at the grocery store and will help you master new techniques like making noodles from vegetables. 

Recipes include:

  • Blueberry Maca Morning Smoothie 
  • Kale Salad with Roasted Squash and Maple Pepitas;
  • Pad Thai with Zucchini Noodles
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Energy Bars 
  • Dandelion Root Latte

The Clean in '15 classes can all be taken individually, but participants are encourage to sign up for the whole series with a 10% discount!
