Photo essay: My class at Whole Foods

This Wednesday, a group of amino acid-craving New Yorkers stormed the Bowery Whole Foods and shook me up for some information on protein. Fortunately, I was prepared.

We went over both vegetable and animal sources of protein. Here I am sharing some of my favorite products that can be found at Whole Foods, including tempeh.

Each participant received a sample of three protein-rich options from the Whole Foods salad bar - a quinoa salad with goji berries and cashew nuts, a marinated chickpea salad, and some edamame pods.

I think I am making a joke here - probably about people who eat too much chicken.

The class was really a lot of fun. I look forward to hosting some more in the future. If you know of any places in the New York area that are looking for someone to host a talk on food or health, please let me know! Or if you want to be on my mailing list for future classes, you may sign up here.

Special thanks to the editors of Time Out New York who featured my class in its New Years Feel Better 09 Issue.

That is so amazing, your own class at Whole Foods! Too bad I didn't live in NY, otherwise I would have loved to attend!
