Repairing our Relationship to Our Bodies — Monthly Online Session

A group meeting for us to unpack our internalized fatphobia, discuss excerpts from articles in fat studies/fat liberation/body positivity/weight stigma, rethink goal-setting and journal together on this ongoing journey towards healing — kind of like group therapy but not really because I’m not a therapist, lol. Cost is $70 CAD ($55 USD) per person per session, once a month, held online on Zoom. There is no package or anything — you would just register for that month’s session if you are interested and able to make it. This next session will be held on May 11, 2022 at 8 pm EST. Zoom details will be sent before the scheduled meeting.

Ditch the Dairy for Good — How to Eat Dairy-Free Online Course

Enrollment Closes November 24, 2021 at 11:59 pm EST.

The number one question I hear when people talk about eating dairy-free is, “But what about cheese? I LOVE cheese!”

Luckily for you, you can still have your cheese and eat it too — and not have an upset stomach or diarrhea when you do. There is a whole dairy-free world out there and I want to help you navigate it.

I’d like to think that this course really breaks down how to eat dairy-free in a fun, simple way.

I show you some of my favourite dairy-free alternatives on the market, so you don’t have to buy them all and sample them like I did (because that can be expensive. Believe me — I know). I show you where to buy all of these yummy products. I also empower you to make your own to save you money and so that you aren’t reliant on a natural food store (especially if you don’t live near to one).

Because I am a Canadian, this course is written with Canadians in mind and features products available in Canada. That said, many of the brands mentioned can be found outside of Canada, and certainly the recipes I teach you can be made almost anywhere in the world.

This course is not for:

  • People who don’t have basic cooking skills (if you burn water, this course is not for you)
  • Perfectionists (I don’t believe in perfection)
  • People who don’t have a blender (you kind of need a blender for this course)
  • People looking for weight-loss advice. This course takes a Health at Every Size approach and does not give any dietary recommendations or weight loss advice
  • People who have a closed mind (we’re going to push your boundaries and expand your imagination. Sorry, not sorry. Experimentation is strongly encouraged in this course. You will need to be open to trying new things)

There is something in this course for everyone — even if you have a nut or soy allergy and especially if you are addicted to cheese but allergic to dairy. I show nut-free and soy-free (and of course, dairy-free) alternatives throughout the course.

Going dairy-free is good for the planet and is often beneficial for many people. It can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.

Together, let’s ditch the dairy — for good. I’ll show you how.

Online Classes

Upcoming: None at the moment. Check back later!

Past: Jamaican Food – Offered via Zoom on August 9, 2020 from 3 pm to 5:30 pm EST. Contact me for details!

Whenever people think of Jamaican food, they immediately think of jerk chicken with a side of rice and peas, festival, or hard dough bread.
 
Welp, I’m feeling nice, it’s the week of Jamaica’s 58th Independence Day and the week of Grace’s Jerk Fest so I figured that I would offer to teach you how to make the food of my people. Plus, it’s one of the most bastardized dishes in the Western world and somebody has to set the record straight. lol.
 
The live cooking class will be hosted online via Zoom. The Zoom link will be posted on this event page.
 
I will post the ingredients you need to buy and where you can buy them at least a week in advance so that you can cook alongside me.
 
I will also post a special, curated Spotify playlist so you can be cooking and listening to reggae to create the right vibe in your kitchen and hit the right culinary note.
 
My friends have encouraged me to not do this for free. SO — this is a pay-what-you-can event (meaning if you can’t pay or would rather not, it’s FREE for you, lol). You can send me an e-transfer to simonesamuels73@gmail.com.
 
WHO: Me (Simone) and alla unnu (translation: all of you) in your respective kitchens
 
WHAT: Online, Live Jamaican Food Cooking Class. We’ll be making:
– Jerk chicken (or jerk tofu)
– Rice and peas
– Salad
– Fried plantain
– Limeade
 
It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan friendly, and can be adapted to paleo, keto or low carb diets.
 
WHY: Because we’re foodies and we have to make the most of this pandemic and this summer.
 
WHERE: Via Zoom from my kitchen to yours.
 
HOW: I’ll tell you how to prepare in advance. Pay-what-you-can or not at all
