Clean Food Date Night

Scheduling a class soon . . . to schedule a private group class, please contact me!


We believe food was created not just for nutritional value, but also for building community.  We created “Clean Food Date Night” as a way for couples to enjoy an interactive learning experience around clean food benefits, sourcing, meal preparation and, yes, enjoying the meal! Each couple will not only learn about clean food, but also participate in preparing the main course of the meal.  The evening is capped off simply a meal of clean, real food with good friends and wonderful conversation!


Please email me at erin@breadbydesign.com for more details, to register, and location.

In your home or mine and usually for a group of 5 or more . . .

Pantry Purge


One of the most common questions we hear is what food should I buy to stock my pantry for meal preparation and snacks?  How do I move from what I have in my pantry to a “clean food” pantry?  This in-home consultation will walk you through step-by-step, item-by-item and share with you what can stay, what needs to go, and how to stock your pantry for your clean, real food journey!  You will also receive valuable shopping tips along the way! 


Please email me at erin@breadbydesign.com for more information.
