Food for Life Instructor Amanda Strombom

Amanda has been vegetarian since 1996 and passionate about healthy eating for many years. In 2001, she formed a vegetarian nonprofit organization called Vegetarians of Washington, with Stewart Rose, and this has grown to be one of the largest regional vegetarian societies in the country. They host monthly community dinners, give free introductory nutrition and cooking classes, and run the renowned Seattle Vegfest, an amazing vegetarian festival featuring doctors speaking, chefs giving cooking demonstrations, health checks, a bookstore, and best of all, more than 700 different kinds of food to try. Amanda is the lead author of their most recent book Say No to Meat: The 411 on Ditching Meat and Going Veg.

Why did you become a Food for Life instructor?

"I chose to become a FFL instructor to offer a comprehensive set of cooking classes and to help more people discover the benefits and experience the pleasures of eating plant-based foods."

Here is what class attendees are saying…

“This class has made a huge difference in my overall well-being. I’ve lost 18 pounds in seven weeks. I feel better, sleep better, and am in an overall better mood. Even my skin and hair have improved.” 
    -Tiffany M., Providence Cancer Center, Anchorage, Alaska

"Everyone who is concerned about nutrition will benefit from this class — and enjoy it. For those of us challenged to survive cancer, it is a great inspiration!”
    -Brian C., St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, Conn.

"After five weeks on the program, my husband and I have both lost 10 pounds. My blood sugar has dropped 30 points. My doctor says I may get off all medications at the next visit. I am a breast cancer survivor and my husband has heart disease, so this is a must for us!”
    -Annie H., Roanoke Recreation Center, Roanoke, Texas
