Healthy Meals at Home | Live Cooking Class with Chef Jacob

Recently we did our first live cooking class in #RLAB. The class was designed for a women's wellness retreat, so we focused on quick, healthy meals anyone can do at home. In this video I demonstrate a couple of my weekly go-tos that have helped me lose 100 lbs over the last two years, including seared salmon with yogurt dill-sauce, salmon tacos, and stir-fried shrimp in high protein peanut curry.

Since all work and no play makes for a dull women's retreat, we also had Wine & Spirits educator Dani Morris demonstrate some of her favorite low calorie, batch cocktails that can be served 'almost' guilt free at your next get-together.
