Who is The Empowered Vegan 101 program good for?
Living a plant based lifestyle can seem challenging at first but you dont have to do it on your own!
Just finished my 6 week program with Jack and it has opened the door to a new way of eating for me. Having Jack come to your house is like having a vegan personal trainer. He personalizes your program to fit your tastes and lifestyle, gives you the groundwork for stocking and organizing your kitchen in the most efficient way possible, gives you homework to do in between lessons and was totally inspiring during the course of the lessons, while gently giving respectful suggestions and corrections And sometimes we just laughed our heads off! It was fun!
Yeah you can follow a recipe, but it is the little things that determine whether what you make is a success. Are the nuts ground long enough, when do you add certain spices, how hot does the oil have to be, how to cut up vegetables efficiently and safely, which dish to cook first, etc etc. We made condiments to go with the dishes that can be overlapped and make the food even more delicious. As someone who has always wanted to expand my pathetically limited cooking repertoire with more plant based cooking, I not only cooked a lot of amazing dishes, but am really eager to continue with the ever expanding recipes that are now available to me on Jack’s website. For me, recipes alone were just too daunting and the classes are not just about them. Just as having access to machines and routines at a gym are not the same as having a personal trainer. I felt inspired and motivated to cook during and after my lessons with Jack, and he was always accessible with questions or concerns I had in between.
That being said, yes I spend more time cooking, yes I have to organize and prep more, but after eating the food that I have cooked myself for 6 weeks, I have lost weight, I sleep better, and my kitchen has transformed so that I now have all the basics that I need to cook a wide variety of plant based dishes. And I enjoy it! Like with a personal trainer, you get out of it what you put into it. I went to a follow up appointment with my naturopath and tests showed my cells more hydrated and energized and I have lost fat from around my organs. That is inspiring in itself. It was so worth it and I am honestly sad it is over, but I feel like I got a big boost for making an amazing, positive change in my life. Plus he is just such a nice cool guy!
