VZ 274: 5 Big Take-Aways from the Forks Over Knives Cooking Course

I Graduated from The Forks Over Knives Cooking Course!

About 90 days ago, I started a new adventure by taking the Forks Over Knives Cooking course. I will admit I was a little nervous since I was not the primary cook in the house, but I knew we needed to improve our overall cooking skills. Despite our best efforts, we were still finding ourselves in somewhat of a rut with cooking the same things over mainly because of our lack of cooking skills.  This also lead to a continued dependence on processed foods.

In Episode 265 – Forks Over Knives Update (July 15, 2018) I provided you all with a quick update with respect to how I was doing and what I was learning. This past week I just graduated from the Forks Over Knives Cooking course, having successfully completed all activities and assignments. In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen Podcast, we provide a high-level summary of the course and how it’s broken down (in case you missed episode 265). We also discuss my top 5 takeaways from the course.
