Great Grains – Living Without Gluten
Everybody loves grains. They can be a warm, satisfying dish that soothes the soul or a wonderful cold dish that completes the meal. You can have them sweet for breakfast, savory for lunch and spicy for dinner. There are so many ways to enjoy the flavors of gluten free grains; you will never feel as though you are living without…(except the belly bloat, of course). Don’t be tempted to just get by with packaged gluten free products. They are great in a pinch, but they don’t contain the nutrients your healing body needs. (They can also be very high in calories) You can only keep your new-found energy and incredible sense of well-being by eating whole foods. We will give you lots of recipes and teach you how to buy, store, cook, menu plan and fit it all into your busy day.
Sweet Sensations – Living Without Sugar
Everybody has a sweet tooth. White knuckling your way through a sugar craving doesn’t work. When the temptation gets too great, you may promise yourself that you’ll just have a little, but after that first bite, there’s no stopping you. That’s because sugar is a highly addictive substance. It is also deadly. Cravings are your body’s way of letting you know that your life is out of balance. We will teach you how to understand your body’s language so that you can honor those cravings in a way that will satisfy body, mind and soul. And no, you don’t have to skip dessert. You’ll never feel like you’re living without when you try Chef Ellen’s sweet treat recipes.
Creamy Creations – Living Without Dairy
This is a tough one for some. There are lots of people addicted to their cheese and ice cream, even when they know they are going to suffer! How crazy is that? Just like we have our cravings for sugar at times, we also have cravings for salty, tangy and creamy. These cravings are real and need to be addressed. Cheese and ice cream are a quick fix, but it doesn’t take long before you are suffering the consequences. Having a lactose free dairy product will not address the problem. It is the protein in milk (casein) that is the real culprit. We will teach you what delicious and satisfying foods you can eat to answer your cravings . Chef Ellen’s recipes for salty, tangy and creamy are sure to please and delight.

Sumptuous Superfoods – Recharge Your Health
Nature is abundant with Superfoods. The term has unfortunately been misused by marketers looking to make a fast buck by making silly promises they can’t keep. A Superfood is not a magic antidote for poor eating. If you are drinking Acai berry juice along with your cheeseburger and fries, you will get little to no benefit. But, it’s a VERY DIFFERENT story when you are eating nourishing whole foods. Now these Superfoods can really go to work and supercharge your health and your energy levels. You are going to love how you feel when you learn about these nutrition blockbusters.
Powerful Proteins – Rebuild Your Strength
Do you remember when buying an egg was simple? Now there is an endless variety to choose from with prices that can range from $1.99- $6.00. Which ones do you buy? Does it make a difference? You need to make the same decisions again when you get to the meat department. Should you buy organic or grass fed? What about fish? Does it matter if your fish is farm raised or wild caught? Buying decisions are so complicated and good food does cost more. We will teach you how to shop, prepare and cook high quality protein so that you will get the nutrients you need and the flavors you love without breaking the budget.
Vibrant Vegetarian – Revitalize Your Life

There is a world of amazingly delicious vegetables that are low in calorie and high in yummy taste. You can have them hot or cold, raw or cooked. They can be sweet as sugar or spicy hot.
