How to Eat Healthfully Even When You’re Not at Home. Many of us eat pretty healthfully when we are at home. And it's super easy to eat healthy when we're at Rancho La Puerta. But what about when we aren't at home? From the candy dish at the office to the buttered popcorn at the movie theater, there is temptation pretty much every where we go. And as a vegan, going to parties, dining at restaurants or eating at other people's homes who aren't vegan can sometimes be a challenge. And what about traveling? How can you find anything healthy to eat at the Memphis airport? This can be challenging enough when you're a healthy eater, but what if you have further dietary restrictions such as Kosher or gluten free, or you have food allergies? Chef AJ has many of these restrictions too, yet has mastered all of these situations with her usual aplomb and will give you time tested tips and tricks so that you can eat healthfully ANYWHERE! Chef AJ has been on the road for almost four years now and has traveled everywhere from Wasilla, Alaska to New York City, and to towns so small in the Midwest and deep south they didn't even have a Costco, Whole Foods or Trader Joes! After attending this lecture you will never have to go hungry or be afraid to leave your home ever again.
