Farewell Fatso!

prep.cook.eat Party with Fitness Enthusiasts

I’ve been here, there, and everywhere in the community teaching cooking classes and delivering healthy food presentations. Now I want to bring my passion for food and cooking right to you in the comfort of your home. Instead of going out, invite your friends or gather your family for a prep.cook.eat Party!  A prep.cook.eat Party is a fun way to learn and share new recipes and simple cooking techniques.
  
The scene
Saturday morning I had the pleasure of meeting with a group of fitness enthusiasts.  These health conscious ladies workout and group train together.They understand that while working out is beneficial to their health, eating well is even more important. After their group workout session they decided to have me over for a prep.cook.eat Party! Take a peek at the delicious fun!

The personalized Salads & Snacks menu:
Greek Salad • Wheat Berry Spinach Salad
Avocado Tomato Salad  • Santa Fe Chicken Salad
 Kale Chips • No-Bake Oatmeal Energy Bars
 Hummus w/Crudites • Brown Bag Popcorn

 

The experience
I’m doing my part to bring Kale back.
It’s not just a green leafy decoration on the salad bar
 
 Even Baby Olivia likes the Kale Chips
 Prepping fun!
Goodies To-go
The ladies working out before the party!

Chrisetta Mosley

I am a product – and now a survivor – of childhood obesity. As a child, my family always told me that my extra weight was merely baby fat and I’d eventually grow out of it. I never did. Instead, my childhood is filled with memories of not being able to ride a bike, flattening its training wheels from being over the recommended weight, and avoiding P.E. classes by any means necessary. For years, I wore my fatness like a wounded soldier wears a Purple Heart - with pride. I owned the look. I dressed it up. I worked the room. There wasn't a skinny girl who intimidated me. I made sure my hair was laid just right. Nails polished. Outfits coordinated to the tee. Accessories to compliment every outfit. But everyone has a breaking point, and mine came in the spring of 2004 when I tipped the scale at nearly 400 pounds 388 to be exact. I was MISERABLE trapped inside of that body. I no longer wore my Purple Heart with pride. Rather, I was ashamed and frightened. Ashamed that I had allowed food to become my everything – frightened I would die because of it. Drastic times called for drastic measures... Today, I’m bound and determined to live a better, healthier, active lifestyle. I realize I’m no longer a passenger in my life, I’m the driver. I’m overcoming my inhibitions and I’m slowly but surely saying farewell to my old childhood nemesis, obesity. For once and for all, Farewell Fatso!
