Virtual Health-Focused Cooking Demo: A New Year, A New You: Probiotics

The New Year is a great opportunity to start making more mindful and intentional decisions on how to best nourish your body and make long term, healthy lifestyle goals. Join us for virtual health-focused cooking demonstrations every Monday in January where we will dedicate time to lecture, cooking techniques, and Q&A taught by Chopping Block chef and nutritionist, JC White! With pre-planning tips and basic techniques, we will give you the tools and knowhow needed to create filling and delicious meals designed to support the best nutritional practices. 

Today's class will focus on Probiotics:

Treat your tummy to the good stuff! Foods containing good bacteria support the immune system through healthy digestion which ultimately leads to a happy and healthy lifestyle. Learn how to add more gut-healing foods like pro- and prebiotics and plant fibers to your diet, the differences in yogurt, the benefits of Kombucha and fermented beverages, and traditionally pickled goods vs. industrial pickled goods so you have the know-how to boost your gut health.


  • Miso Soup with Tofu, Bok Choy and Seaweed
  • Kimchi-Sesame Rice Bowl

Skills covered in class:

  • Understanding how probiotics work
  • Benefits of good bacteria
  • How to work more probiotics into your diet
  • Getting familiar with Asian ingredients
  • Selecting tofu and seaweed
  • Working with fermented foods
  • Balancing flavors

Our Virtual Cooking Demonstrations, via Zoom, are a fun opportunity to watch your chef in action. During class, your chef will teach you how to prepare the dishes while you observe and take notes. Our Zoom moderator will make sure your questions submitted through the chat option are answered during or after class. The recipe packet will be provided upon registration. Please note that some recipe steps may be prepared ahead due to the length of the class.
