Happy almost Friday darlings!  I hope you’re having a lovely week, and staying warm if you live in the New York area like me!  I wanted to reach out and inform readers tonight about some exciting news for Fit Soul and Spice in 2015!

Starting this month (January 2015), I’ll be teaching some healthy alternative cooking courses at Hudson County Community College’s Culinary Arts Institute, in Jersey City, NJ.  Culinary course coordinators discovered Fit Soul and Spice, and were truly interested in working together towards educating people about the benefits and aspects of healthy, balanced, clean living!  If you live in the NYC/North Jersey area, and you’re interested in learning more about simple and delicious healthy cooking, what it means to eat “clean,” and living a long-term, sustainable healthy lifestyle, these courses may be the perfect opportunity for you to embark on your life changing healthy lifestyle journey

All of the recipes taught throughout these courses will be Fit Soul and Spice originals; some you can find here, and many you have not yet seen.  Students will be educated in what exactly defines “clean eating,” how to incorporate more whole foods into your healthy lifestyle, cooking with vegan/gluten free/raw foods, and how to use clean, healthy alternative ingredients in place of processed, unnatural, unhealthy options.  ***Bonus: Students will be able to take home leftovers, as well as a copy of all recipes made throughout that day’s course!  Bring healthy home with you…
