One of my greatest joys is teaching others how to gain better health with plant based nutrition. High nutrient plant foods, such as leafy green vegetables, have the most power to give you greater quality of life.   In my classes I demonstrate how to incorporate these foods into delicious meals that you will love!  I also discuss the power of these foods and how they can decrease you risk of disease, reverse disease if you have it, and achieve and maintain your ideal weight.

If you live in or are visiting the St. George area, I hope you will join me for a cooking class.

Can’t make it to one of my scheduled classes? I would love to come to you. Schedule a demonstration for your church, business,  civic group, or neighborhood party!  Give me a call at 435-215-6997 or e-mail me at

Cooking Class Reviews

I just want to thank you for the cooking demonstration last night. Everything was quite delicious and I do plan to use those recipes going forward. You made everything look so easy, I was quite encouraged.  Vegan food definitely has variety and is very tasty. Thanks again. You did such a rest job!  Ronnie and Jim, Mesquite NV


Thank you so much for your class and the recipes. I made the two main courses last week and they were a hit with my Husband and 3 year old. You have a gift and it’s so great of you to share your knowledge and talents with those around you. Looking forward to when I can come to one of your classes again. Thanks!  M. Roland

Lots of love and gratitude,

Thank you for your informative class at the Bosch Center. We both enjoyed it. We will be trying out the Egg-less recipe for our trip this weekend. Jerry and I both remarked at how nice it was to be able to see you preparing the foods. This truly was a nice experience.”  Kathryn & Jerry, St. George


“Your class last evening was wonderful. It amazes me when I watch and see the flashes of genius emerge while you show us how to cook well in a maximally healthy way. As someone that is still new to this diet, the genius is partly that you make it so easy for me to be firm in my resolve to do this for the rest of my life.” Hazna & Frank, St. George

“Thank you April for your cookbook. We have been using your recipes for about 10 weeks now and I’ve lost 25 pounds. We’ve not been perfect but darn near. Best of all, I’m feeling healthier and I don’t feel deprived.” Rob - Pocatello, Idaho

"Your recipes are making it much easier for us to keep on the diet." Yvonne, St. George
“I just love your cookbooks! I’ve been gradually working towards a plant based diet since about 2012 and have used a few really good cookbooks – the happy herbivore books, the China Study Books, Engine 2 etc — which all gave me a great foundation for this approach. Your cookbooks have offered new ways of seeing some of the recipes . I’ve made a few of the deserts, some of the loafs, and breakfasts. Great use of herbs and spices, and I like the fact that the ingredients are very simple to use. ” Thanks again, Sue

Whole Food Goodness and Whole Food American Favorites contain a collection of my favorite high nutrient whole food plant based recipes. My recipes are unique in that they contain no extracted oils, minimal processed sugars, and limited processed grains. I use an abundance of leafy green vegetables, which are the healthiest foods on the planet and have the greatest power to cleanse, detoxify, and repair damaged cells and bring you greater health for life.

Along with the recipes, you will find quotes from some of my favorite nutrition experts and documented research studies that will tell you why it's important to eat a plant based diet. Knowledge is power and it is my hope and prayer that these books will help you gain the strength and determination to make the changes necessary that will bring you excellent health throughout your entire life!
