What You'll Get
The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a two-hour healthy-cooking class with dinner included at Meals That Heal in San Marcos (an $85 value).
Meals That Heal's health coach, Freddi Pakier, wields a combination of holistic techniques coupled with the tactics of nutritional science to teach students how to craft healthy, thinning noshables. A two-hour demonstration cooking session teaches up to 30 pupils how to integrate ingredients into their daily diet to achieve their ideal weight and shore up their health, giving them the confidence to turn down their doctor the next time he asks to borrow the car. Students can choose from a variety of class options chock-full of tips on creating travel meals, balancing edibles, detoxifying internals, preventing disease, and strengthening bones. Other sessions, including a gluten-free-cooking lesson, elucidate the art of working around dietary restrictions.
Following study sessions, flavor scholars can kick back and enjoy Freddi Pakier's brain fruits in the form of a delicious dinner. The dishes will emphasize the finer points of the day's lesson while satisfying stoked appetites and providing an opportunity to round up the manpower for food-pyramid construction projects. Meals That Heal's courses impart the knowledge of how cuisine and lifestyle choices affect your life and energy levels, reaching beyond food to the understanding of how work stress and recreational cobra-wrangling can have negative impacts on your health.

About Meals that Heal
As a high school student, Freddi Pakier's favorite breakfast item was a candy bar. However, as the school days dragged on, her sugar highs inevitably gave way to lethargy and mood swings. She didn't realize the correlation until she was in her 20s, which caused her to completely change her diet—a change that she credits with giving her an abundance of energy and a more positive outlook.
Freddi now shares her story and tips as a health coach at Meals that Heal, introducing students to holistic techniques and the tactics of nutritional science so that they can craft healthful dishes on their own. Her recipes also mesh well with weight-loss plans, helping clients to shed pounds without counting calories or removing their solid gold shoes.
Students can choose from a variety of class options that highlight diverse topics such as travel meals, vegetarian nutrition, detoxifying internals, preventing disease, and strengthening bones. All sessions are safe for those avoiding gluten.
