Sample Meal at the Pritikin Fitness Camp

Hands-On Cooking Specialty Programs

Several times a year we offer additional, optional programming to those who want to prep for healthy success in the kitchen. During these weeks, hands on cooking classes will be available for you to take advantage of. Once you leave, your home life- and your cooking skills- will healthier than ever!

We’ll help you become masters of your own kitchen, and also equip you with the skills necessary for you to emerge a more health conscious and self-sustaining individual. We will walk you through all the basics, from learning how to hold a knife properly to planning and preparing entire meals. We will start off with dressings and marinades then follow that with soups, stews and sauces. One day, we will dedicate to snacks and appetizers, including some of our most popular brunch items, such as deviled eggs, cream cheese cucumbers, caprese kebabs, and ricotta stuffed Roma tomatoes. Another day will focus on lean animal protein including fish and shellfish. On the last day, we will celebrate the completion of the week by whipping up some decadent desserts.
