HAMMOND | Vegan Food Instructor Sarah Hlavacek is offering a 90-minute food demonstration and tasting on Sept. 14 at 2 p.m. at Healthy Horizons in Hammond.
“The Plants that Power You, Prepared for your Nourishment & Enjoyment” will feature preparation and demonstration of Vegan cuisine, tasting portions of two Vegan dishes, sharing of the recipes of the day’s dishes and educational information and handouts.
Hlavacek has been a Vegan for more than three years and has trained with Vegan Fusion and world-renowned chef, Mark Reinfeld.
“Plant based living is something that I believe in very strongly,” Hlavacek said. “I want to help others see that Vegan living is completely within reach and to also help them understand why it's the best choice for their health, the animals, and the planet.”
The focus on the benefits of plant-based diet has increased dramatically in recent years and research has shown over and over that a well-planned Vegan diet is appropriate for all stages of life. Vegan diets are not lacking in nutrition and those who embrace it enjoy a wider variety of foods then ever before.
There are very few things in life we can control,” Hlavacek said. “Lifestyle, especially what we choose to eat, is one of the most important decisions we can make to take charge of our health and well being. It’s something real that you can do everyday to make a difference.”
