Plant Strong: Food for Life Promoting optimum plant-based culinary wellness

As a plant-based chef educator, my cooking and wellness workshops use evidence-based resources to promote healthy living. My cooking values focus on using whole food, low to no oil, organic and local when feasible. I use  French cooking techniques, combined with various international flavors. The workshops range from private demonstrations to large, multi-session classes. Classes have spanned various locations across Colorado--from Boulder to Yuma to Grand Junction, including Canada and Florida. 

Eric Aakko, MS MCHES, is a graduate from a professional plant-based culinary program and has a certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University. He is also a certified Food for Life cooking instructor with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), and has over 25 years experience as a public health practitioner addressing various population health issues. Eric's other passions are backcountry Nordic skiing and bicycling ultra endurance events.  Eating plant-strong gives Eric the endurance, recovery, and mental acuity to push farther and faster in the office and backcountry.
