Featured Veggiecator: Sabrina Cooper

unnamed 5
 

When we first invisioned the expansion of our program, we wanted to "Veggiecate the Nation." It is even the chorus of the our theme song! However, we are SO pleased that Veggiecation has grown beyond our borders and into other great nations! In honor of that, this feature we are focusing on Sabrina Cooper - a Culinary Nutrition Expert and Veggiecator, living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 
 
After years of working as a Registered Dental Hygienist, Sabrina realized that it was time to step in a different direction and follow her passion for nutrition and most of all being in the kitchen.   
 
Sabrina recognized the common theme is that there isn’t time to prepare meals that are healthy, or that it is unclear to many what makes up healthy meals.  These conversations would arise quite frequently while working in the dental office so she decided that she needed to provide services for adults and children to showcase that preparing healthy meals does not have to be complicated.  Being able to educate the community on how they can get the most from the foods that they eat has become her true passion.  For years, she struggled with food issues and with much dedication and finding the right fit for her, she felt better than ever, all through healthier food choices.

Veggiecation for Breakfast?! Yes, please!

Guest Post by Certified Veggiecator Educator, Randi Kant

A successful 4-week Veggiecation series at a new school last May paved the way for my return in the fall.  So as summer winded down, I circled back to the incredibly helpful and supportive Before/After-School Care Coordinator to make a plan for the new school year.

Bananas are such a common fruit that it was estimated that each person in the U.S. ate 12.7 kg (~28 pounds) of bananas in 2013 (FAO 2015). You can eat them by themselves, or with cereal, ice cream, peanut butter, fruit salad, banana bread, etc. Most people have been exposed enough to bananas to know which ripeness they prefer (e.g., more green all the way to a spotty yellow).  For example, I prefer bananas that are greener and my husband prefers to eat them once all of the green has converted to yellow. But besides “ripening,” do you know what’s really going on with the banana while it changes color on the outside?

The Power of the Checklist

Guest Post by Certified Veggiecator Educator, Randi Kant

Four years into my diligent, yet circuitous pursuit of my envisioned cornucopia career, Veggiecation has taken its place as a cornerstone of my work as a wellness professional and health educator.   A sea of little 2-thumbs way up’s will forever make my heart swell as I know seeds of healthy habits and attitudes are being nurtured and taking root.
