Are you sick of gaining and losing the same 10 or 20 pounds over and over during the holidays?
It's a slippery slope when we start to eat sugary, addictive foods, and before you know it, you're falling back into your old habits and patterns. The cycle continues at each holiday party, making it harder to get back on track as the weeks go on. Sugar is addictive! Gluten has opiates and is addictive! Processed and fried food is addictive! One bite leads to another...but only every time!
So why not STOP the pattern and learn how to make your own satisfying, healthy Thanksgiving favorites while never feeling deprived? This could become a new year, a new you, and a new way of approaching life!
This class recording, led by Elaina and Katelyn, is playful, inspiring, festive, and fun. No prior experience is necessary!
Online learning doesn't mean you go at it alone.
Get expert tips, advice, and guidance on making Thanksgiving recipes that work every time. We’re not going to leave you to fend for yourselves – this class also includes hand-holding and ongoing support directly from Elaina Love and Katelyn Louise via our online portal.
- Sweet & Spicy Coconut Nog | Enjoy a rich and creamy vegan nog with holiday spices and coconut cream (raw)
- Savory & Spicy Nut/Seed Party Mix | always a hit at gatherings and a good switch out for traditional candy, dips, and chips. Also a great take-along for airplane and car trips (dehydrated or baked)
- Rosemary Walnut Loaf | A healthier alternative to Turkey and Tofurkey (raw or baked)
- Low-Carb Waldorf Salad | Combine the sweetness of jicama and green apples with celery, radishes, and a light and tangy vegan mayo served over seasonal greens.
- Warm Zesty Arugula Salad | A tangy salad with a hint of fresh orange that will delight everyone

- Gingerbread Truffles | Decadent gingerbread filling dipped in homemade chocolate (raw)
