Additional "Cooking with Cannabis" class added!

After our initial class date sold out so quickly, we decided to come up with another date to share this awesome information! Join Keri Connell, LDN and Leslie Apgar, MD on September 4th at 5:30-7:30pm for a dive into the world of culinary medicine using medical marijuana.

You won't be learning how to make yet another sugar laden "pot brownie" in these classes. We're going teach recipes through the framework of our guiding dietary principles at the Crossroads Teaching Kitchen- whole foods, anti inflammatory, Mediterranean focused! 

On September 4th, 2018, we'll be collaborating with Greenhouse Wellness, Maryland's premier medical cannabis dispensary. In addition to our culinary instructor and licensed nutritionist, Keri Connell, LDN, we will have the fabulous Dr. Leslie Apgar, co-founder of Greenhouse Wellness at the helm to discuss all things medical. 

While actual THC containing cannabis can not, and will not be served in this class, we will use demo herbs to show you how to infuse anti-inflammatory oils for use in an array of recipes to support pain management and healing. By the end of this 2 hour intro class, you will learn the basics of how to infuse medical marijuana into the right oils; how to dose correctly and effectively; how to preserve your infusions; and how to incorporate this medicine into healthy dishes.

New Class Alert! Cooking with Cannabis

With the legalization of medical marijuana, we've gotten more than a few questions about how best to incorporate this medicine into a healthy diet versus just smoking or inhaling the plant. We're excited to announce a new journey into culinary medicine, in our Cooking with Cannabis series. You won't be learning how to make yet another "pot brownie" in these classes. We're going teach these classes through the framework of our guiding dietary principles at the Crossroads Teaching Kitchen- whole foods, anti inflammatory, Mediterranean focused!

New anti-inflammatory cooking series!

New anti-inflammatory cooking series!

Chronic inflammation. It's on the rise and manifesting as more than just aches and pains. New research has linked chronic inflammation, the kind that doesn't turn off when it's no longer needed, to many modern day diseases and syndromes including cancer, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, autoimmune disease, obesity, Alzheimer's, depression, and cardiovascular disease.

In most cases, inflammation becomes chronic, or doesn't turn itself off, when the body is constantly challenged with environmental insults. Among those insults is our choice of food. Our diets can either provoke inflammation or squelch the internal fire. Over the past few years, we seen a great deal of research showing that certain foods display anti-inflammatory activity. That's exciting news! Putting the research into common everyday practice is where we come in.

We designed our new cooking class series to take you through the nuts and bolts of transitioning your diet to one that fights inflammation. We've broken our classes down to highlight the components of a balanced anti-inflammatory diet- soups, entree salads, healthy starches, vegetable sides, main courses, and breakfasts. Stay tuned for the schedule, which will appear on our Classes & Events page.
