Health & Wellness adventure hosted by Bhakti
- Duration: 2 Hours total
- Language: Offered in English
I am a practicing Duke Endocrinologist passionate about making healthy living a part of ones life style. I want to share my passion for healthy eating with others and I strongly believe healthy eating starts with healthy cooking. I have witnessed first hand how certain foods have the power to not only control disease but unlike medication can often reverse it and certainly prevent it at the first place. Best of all, they are free of side effects. If you have been recently diagnosed with a chronic disease or just want to start reversing impact of old unhealthy eating habits and establish healthy ones but are too overwhelmed or confused about where to begin, join me in helping you get started on this powerful, trans-formative journey.
Learn how to make healthy meals using unprocessed plant foods as the key ingredients, Indian spices as the key flavors using the instant pot as the key cooking tool. Learn basics of instant pot cooking including initial set up and how to use various settings. All recipes are oil, meat, dairy and gluten free. Here's what the experience will include:
* Instant Pot- lentil soup, chana masala, quinoa and tofu with vegetables.
*How to make your own soy yogurt in instant pot and give you some starter to take home.
*We will end the meal with a healthy dessert like Tofu chocolate mousse.
*We will also do a mindfulness meditation practice at the beginning of cooking and eating.

What a great experience. Bhakti has such a wealth of knowledge about food and nutrition and she is so passionate about sharing, it's contagious. We learned all about different vegetables and their impact on our health and we cooked absolutely delicious dishes using the Instant Pot. I was amazed at how easy it was to prepare them and am going to dust off my Instant Pot today!

This experience was fantastic. Even though I have already been plant based for a year, I still learned so much! Bhakti is warm, friendly and welcoming. She is passionate about health and plant based eating. This is a great experience for a novice, or experienced person. Learn the what, how, and why to eating plant based. Learn how to use many of the functions of your instant pot. Learn to make authentic Indian recipes. What’s not to love! Myself and a friend carpooled 1.5 hrs for this experience. Next level class we’re going back with 3! Highly recommend.

Bhakti presented a lot of information about the power of food and the benefits of healthy eating.. We made 4 dishes in an instant pot (she had 3 instant pots). All were delicious, chickpeas Masala was my favorite. After cooking we ate lentils and greens, the chickpeas, tofu miso stew and pot in pot lentil and grains. The end of the meal was with tofu chocolate mousse and soy yoghurt. It was all delicious and I am not a fan of tofu or soy but this was an a real exception. I would say to definitely take notes because the handout can't cover everything she talked about. Healthy, fast and delicious meal making and you learn more about your instant pot. good food that is healthy.

I was fortunate enough to attend a cooking class by Dr. Bhakti and I would love to attend another. All her recipes were so delicious, and she even gave us the recipes to take home. I've been Plant Based for about a year and a half but Dr. Bhakti's cooking is over to the top good! The chocolate mousse for desert will be a real hit for the holidays. Thank you again. Not only was it an informative cooking lesson, but Dr. Bhakti is fun to learn with.
