YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS OUR JULY MEETING! 

Our speaker for July will be Megan McCarthy talking about using herbs and garden ur vegetables for healthy eating. Megan McCarthys creative culinary experience and enthusiasm brings healthy food to life! She incorporates highly nutritious Superfoods into an everyday healthy eating lifestyle while putting you at ease in the kitchen. As a healthy lifestyle consultant, spokesperson and chef, she is the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Edible Garden Chef, creating culinary delights freshly harvested right out of the edible garden. She also teaches healthy cooking and lifestyle classes at Whole Foods Markets, The Cook’s Warehouse, and Strippaggio in and around Atlanta as well as “Lunch & Learns” for corporate wellness programs. She has a special love for teaching kids about eating healthier foods, and is working with Georgia Public Schools and Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move/Chef’s Move program to raise a healthier generation of kids. Megan is also on the advisory board for the Healthy Kids Across America Foundation.

 

Megan provides chef services to corporate trade show clients for Food Marketing Institute, Produce Marketing Association, and the International Home & Housewares Show. She has been regularly featured for her healthier style on HLN for Weekend Express, Lifetime’s The Balancing Act, and 11 Alive’s Atlanta and Company, sharing her culinary expertise and delicious natural recipes. She develops innovative recipes for national clients such as Disney, Marie’s Dressings and Seeds of Change as well as creating locally fresh garden recipes for the Atlanta Botanical Garden, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, and Edible Atlanta magazine. Watch for her up and coming healthy eating and lifestyles recipe book!
