Feed Your Family without the Fight

Learn Tips and Tricks to feeding your whole family without cooking multiple meals.  Find ways to sneak in more veggies and new foods without resistance.  Anna will demonstrate how to prepare a quick easy meal and provide multiple recipes intended for the whole family to enjoy.

Gut Health

It’s the new hot topic in health, but is it buzz worthy? It is! Chef and Health Coach Anna Klimmek is an expert in gut health! It’s a big subject! She will teach you what it means to have a leaky gut (it’s not what you think). What are some of the causes. Tips to heal and keep your gut healthy. And a few recipes to support your gut health.

Food for Focus

Interested in increasing productivity in your employees? Noticing that certain times of the day or week it’s seems like people are just scattered? They say Tuesday is the most productive day of the week! Well we’ve got to do better than that! In this seminar your employees will learn how to eat for sustained focus, attention and energy. We will also teach some tricks to re-focus and re-energize when you’ve hit that midday slump.

What the Heck is Inflammation

Inflammation is the other hot new health buzzword, but what is it and why is it bad for your health? In this seminar, we will discuss inflammation, how it affects your health and how you can reduce inflammation in your body. We’ll talk food and lifestyle that promote low inflammation in the body.

Sugar vs. Fat Who is to Blame?

First fat made you fat. Now we are hearing that sugar is bad, but so is artificial sweetener? Are people really putting butter in their coffee? It seems the world has been turned upside-down and no one knows how to eat healthy anymore. This is not a trick question, there is an answer. Anna breaks it down and makes healthy eating easy. As always you’ll receive simple recipes so you can practice what you learn.

Healthy Weekly Dinners

In this seminar we will teach and discuss healthy weekly meals. We’ll discuss the challenges people face in getting a healthy meal on the table after a long day of work. Using visual aids, we’ll present healthy options, debunk some health myths, and offer some quick dinner “cheats.” Each participant with be presented with a weeks of recipes to coincide with a streamlined meal plan, starring some key ingredients that can be used in more than one meal.

Reinventing Lunch

Don’t let a boring lunch drive you to the drive-thru. Keep it fresh and exciting so that you stay on that healthy track. Chef Anna of Happy Food MN will teach you tips and tricks to making lunch a little bit healthier and a little bit more exciting. You’ll learn how to make an easy Cherry Walnut Rotisserie Chicken Salad, Ball jar salads and the art of the Bento box. Each participant will receive recipes to replicate what you’ve learned at home.

Breakfast

You’ve heard it all before. It’s the most important meal of the day. Also, the toughest to get on the go and STILL be healthy. High sugar, high carb usually rules this meal sending you crashing through the day and by 3pm you can’t even think any more. This seminar will teach you how to start the day off right and set you up for success the rest of the day. From grab-and-go options to looking at breakfast in a whole new way, (dinner for breakfast anyone?) and the one reason it might be ok to SKIP it all together.

Power Snacks

For me, it’s 3pm, that time of day when my body is just sort of confused. It’s tired, and ready to be done, but nowhere near the end of the day. For others it’s just after a workout or mid-morning coffee and muffin run. No matter when your low hits, or your munchies set in if you are prepared it doesn’t have to derail you from your healthy eating goals. In this seminar you’ll learn about some healthy snacks that go far beyond the vending machine and are a bit more interesting than veggies and hummus (not that there’s anything wrong with that!).

Super Food

Your Insta feed is full of them. That matcha latte looks amazing and you are “this close” to making your own golden milk. You want to make that smoothie bowl but is buying all of those new ingredients worth it? Hemp seeds, chia seeds, kale, spirulina, maca, matcha—What do they do and is it worth buying? What does clean eating look like and which superfoods are worth eating. We’ll build our own smoothie bowls sampling a bunch of those strange ingredients we see all over Instagram and talk about which ones are worth buying and which ones to skip!

Healthy Party Platters

Wait what? That’s a thing? I didn’t even know you could do that?! You can! And nobody will even know the wiser! Chef and Health Coach Anna Klimmek will help you overcome those hurdles while making you look like the hostess with the mostess! Learn how to make a beautiful party platter that will impress your friends AND keep you feeling great throughout the holidays! When we are all done making the platter everyone can taste if for themselves!

Revamping Your Food Closet – As Seen on KARE 11 – A FAVE!!

Anna will bring in some of the top fridge and pantry offenders (sugary yogurts, overly processed foods, boxed/frozen dinner no-nos and all those vitamin and energy drinks) and have a healthy alternative for each item on her do-no-eat list. We’ll make parfaits using muesli, honey fresh fruit, and talk about some of those of the new hot foods in health like hemp hearts and chia seeds, taste water infusions and talk bone broth. Anna will also provide instruction and recipes for a scrap stock and Crock Pot Chicken Soup, an easy way to feed the family.
