Join us for a live virtual cooking class with Jennifer Tyler Lee, author of Half the Sugar, All the Love, to learn how to enjoy the comfort foods you crave in a healthier way.

Studies show that we consume three times the recommended daily limit of added sugar, contributing to a number of health risks including weight gain, type 2 diabetes, abnormal cholesterol levels, and cardiovascular disease. In this 1-hour virtual cooking class, you will cook alongside a best-selling cookbook author to create delicious and healthy dishes by sweetening with fiber-rich fruits and vegetables instead of added sugar. Not only will you end up with healthy foods to enjoy, you’ll also learn the scientifically-proven benefits of reducing added sugar and discover essential cooking strategies that you can employ in your family’s favorite recipes to boost flavor and healthfulness in the foods you make.

Together with Jennifer, you’ll make her decadent double chocolate brownies and honey ice cream peach pops. All of the recipes can be made gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and vegan so that everyone at your table can enjoy the treats.

Jennifer Tyler Lee is a bestselling author and healthy eating advocate who earned her certificate in nutrition and healthy living from Cornell University. Her new book, Half the Sugar, All the Love, is co-authored with Stanford pediatrician and associate professor Dr. Anisha I. Patel. Jennifer’s recipes have been featured by The Washington Post, Parents Magazine, Real Simple, Alice Waters, Mark Bittman, Michael Pollan, Jamie Oliver, and Oprah, among many others.
