Online Course Available for a Limited Time Only
This is a LIVE 4-week online program designed to help anyone learn everything you need to know about a plant-based diet. There is truly no better time to improve your health and the health of your family and I believe a mostly plant-based (it doesn't have to be 100%) approach is the way to go. I will be teaching all my nutrition tips, strategies for menu planning, swap lists, and resources for anyone just looking to lean-in or go all the way. If you just don't know where to start or you want to take your diet to the next level and improve your nutrition intake, lower your inflammation, lose weight, and turn on the anti-aging switch in your body, this course will be a game changer.

Intro to Plant Based Diet
No cooking involved for this week since I have so much to teach you to get this course off the ground before we even start to cook! Let's discuss what is a Plant-Based Diet? Spoiler alert - it is not necessarily vegan. It can potentially be Paleo or Whole 30. There is a lot to understand in terms of how to get the nutrition you need (think protein, calcium, iron, Omega-3's, and fiber.). How plant-based do you have to be to be considered plant-based? How do you construct a plant-based meal plan and have a wide variety of foods and essential nutrients? How do you not gain weight eating more carbohydrates? I will teach you all of this and so much more!
Proteins & Swaps
Let's get cooking! I will teach you the best sources of plant-based protein and a variety of ways to cook them. I will also show you how to take existing recipes that call for animal protein and make them with less animal protein or the best plant-based swaps. I have never met a recipe I couldn't make more plant-based or fully plant-based!
Vegetables & Starches
More cooking..There is no proponent of any worthy diet that doesn't think we need to eat more vegetables! Let's do a deep dive and explore all the benefits of vegetables, identify the most nutritious ones and get a little more creative. What are the best starches to consume and in what quantities?
Breakfast and Desserts
Breakfast sets the tone for the day, so it's important to be thoughtful about what we choose to eat. Let's cook breakfast and desserts. I'll also share my favorite plant-based desserts and ingredient swaps so you can adapt your favorite recipes. Plus I'll give you my opinion about the best plant-based products on the market and the ones that are not as high quality.

I have taken several of Pamela's cooking classes over the years and most enjoyed the Plant Based Cooking. She gave great ideas on how to modify existing recipes along with great new recipes to introduce to my family - all which have been hits. As health standards change and and evolve, it's nice to have a resource who knows what's going on and a chef who understands not everyone in a family is going to make a drastic change overnight! Thanks, Pamela!
I have taken three of Pamela’s boot camp classes and thoroughly enjoyed them. I always learn something new and get very excited to incorporate her tips, ideas and recipes. She is so knowledgeable and such a joy. It is great fun to ask questions in the “chat” and have her answer them. She makes you feel like you are there in her kitchen with her. I am looking forward to more boot camps with Pamela!
I loved Pamela’s plant based boot camp. I have been vegetarian since I was 6 and I’m 48 now. I study holistic nutrition and Ayurveda and still absolutely loved this bootcamp and learned great recipes and methods that were easy, fast and nutritious! I even made the lentil bolognese tonight with a spaghetti squash and it was delish! My husband is not veggie but loves all of the recipes I have made from Pamela! Pamela’s high energy and happy down to earth outlook is wonderful and makes all the classes fun and easy to follow and to stay easily engaged! I’m so grateful for this course and how easy it is to follow! Thank you Pamela.
Pamela has become a household name with my family. We went vegan in January 2020 and I was struggling to find recipes that everyone liked. Pamela made it so much easier. She provides instructions with her recipes to make dishes vegan or gluten free, etc. If you don't have both of her cookbooks, buy them and then buy them for your friend who loves food as much as you do!
I have loved good food and enjoyed cooking for as long as I can remember. As a child, while other kids were at the playground, I was helping my father in the garden, watering plants and vines and watching miracles happen. I come from a large Italian-American family where sit-down holiday dinners for 85 people are the norm (how, you might ask – organization! But more on that later …).
The food I grew up with was never fancy, even though my mother always had a subscription to Gourmet. But I knew where the food came from and it was always real. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned more about the nourishing and healing power of food. And it wasn’t until I volunteered as a nutrition docent in an elementary school for Growing Great that it truly crystallized for me — our society has a big problem. I knew I had to do something, but was unsure of where to start.
I was asked to teach a “healthful cooking class” for a group of young mothers. The business grew organically from that first group and I knew I had a message — and a new mission — in life.

Of course! With the free Zoom app, you will be able to access video classes from your phone or tablet without any additional software.
No, participants can only see and hear me. You can show up as you are! Your questions or comments are submitted in a chat box which all participants will see.
I will be there every step of the way and will answer any questions you have during our weekly live classes. You can also contact me via the private facebook page or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For any tech questions, please contact my assistant at email@example.com.
Since I can only cook a limited number of recipes in a 1 hour class and the saved zoom recordings are not high quality, I opted to have the cooking demos professionally recorded and edited to be able to include more content. The plus side is the video quality will be much better when you watch it again.
You will not need any fancy kitchen equipment, although I will offer suggestions on my favorite go-to tools. Having basic tools like a cutting board, knife, sheet pan, and skillet are great!.
No problem! I will offer plenty of substitutions you can use to adapt recipes.
With only a limited amount of spots available, sign up will be open until Jan 10 or until the course is full. Be sure to act fast to secure a spot.
Each student will receive login details after signing up to access their own private account on the membership portal (login link located in weekly emails and on my site, under Bootcamps) where course content is organized into weekly categories. This is where you will be able to access zoom invites, weekly downloads, and replay videos in case you miss an email.
