Food for Life Instructor Nerma Frieden

This former engineer and mom of three girls became vegan after watching Forks Over Knives. The movie shattered her belief in the myths that meat and dairy are necessary for optimal health. She began reading anything she could find on the subject. The more she learned, the more she was convinced that a plant-based diet was the best way forward for everyone. It is not only good for your health but is also a way to be kinder to animals, to people, and to the planet.

After learning to cook vegan food for her family, Nerma organized vegan cooking classes at her local church and also began sharing her recipes via the "VegStart" Facebook page.

Why did you become a Food for Life instructor?

"Being a FFL instructor combines my three big passions: health and wellness, love for animals, and cooking. With this job I can do what I love and make a difference, too."

Here is what class attendees are saying…

“This was a great class. I plan to continue with what I have learned. Better health, life style, and lost weight!” 
    - Dorothy, Peoria, IL

"This class has opened my eyes. I now see why my blood sugars were so high. It has shown me new ways of cooking healthy food.”
    - William T., Germantown Hills, IL

"I did not want the class to end! Nerma’s enthusiasm and knowledge were contagious! After every lesson, I made a couple of the recipes. This class has definitely been a life changing experience.”
    - Barbara, Peoria, IL
