HER Kitchen: A Plant-based Cooking Class + Wellness Series

Healthy eating is not just for vegetarians, it’s for anyone looking to do their bodies good. Living an enhanced lifestyle boils down to incorporating a bevy of healthy components into our daily routines, including eating properly. But eating food, while balancing a healthier lifestyle, can be challenging for some people – especially those who are constantly on the run. That’s why Her Sanctuary has come up with a new plant-based cooking class and wellness series called HER Kitchen.

The new cooking class is thanks to four leading ladies coming together to create the collective offering – Sally Gower of Eat Well Buffalo, Sue + Ciara Morreale of Her Sanctuary, and Sarah Nasca of Ashker’s Juice Bar + Café. All three plant-powered lifestyle coaches have spent a lifetime learning the tricks of the trade, which they are now hoping to pass along to others. 

Each session includes a partial hands-on cooking demonstration of two plant-based recipes and a sit-down meal.

“Not only will it harmonize your body at a cellular level, but it will empower you to take charge of your own health, and live your best life.” – HER Kitchen

HER Kitchen is just another example of an offshoot from Her Sanctuary – an entity that is in place to create wellness initiatives for WNYers looking to get a positive boost in life.

  • Do you want to learn what “plant-based” means?
  • Are you interested in learning how to cook plant-based meals?
  • Are you plant-based but you’re out of ideas for what to cook or how to get enough protein in your meals?

“Then come join us and learn how food nurtures our bodies, fuels our brain, and brings us together in community.” – HER Kitchen

Benefits of incorporating plant-based eating routines into your diet include glowing skin, sparkling eyes, strong hair and nails, restful sleep, strong bones and healthy joints, balanced blood sugars, increased energy, happy organs, and regular bowel movements – all of the things that make us happy and healthy!
