January is going to be over before we know it and it’s time to get moving on those resolutions! I don’t know about you, but I’d really love to step up my cooking game in 2017; eating a little healthier couldn’t hurt either. Vancouver has a ton of healthy options for dining out, but if you’re feeling like enjoying a night in, why not attempt those dishes yourself!? Cooking classes are an awesome way to learn new cooking skills, an adorable date idea, an opportunity to meet some cool locals, and an all around great experience. Let’s do this together, Vancouver! Here are some of the best healthy cooking classes Vancouver has to offer to get the ball rolling on some of those resolutions:

Rooted Nutrition is located at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and is bursting with incredible classes to take. Their “Cook Once Eat Healthy All Week” class filled up instantly, so they added another one on February 22nd! In this class you’ll learn how to prep for an entire week of healthy eating AND you walk away with the meal plan. Some other classes you’ll definitely want to check out are: Nut-Based Cheese-Making, Anti-Inflammatory Eating, a special Kombucha Workshop, Plant-Based Baking, and so much more. I have a feeling you’ll be spending some serious time here in 2017, I know I will. 

The Dirty Apron

If you haven’t been here, I highly suggest you go as soon as possible. The Dirty Apron offers cooking classes, take-out meals, sandwiches, groceries, catering, and more! Basically, if you’re a lover of food, you will also be a lover of The Dirty Apron. They have a number of upcoming classes that will fit right in with a healthy lifestyle, for example: Food, Fitness & Flavour, The Art of Fuelling Your Body Without Offending Your Taste Buds. They have a wonderful, upbeat environment, nothing but helpful tips and tricks to learn, and endless food-related wisdom to impart to their students.
