Pritikin Cooking School

Discover a whole new world of culinary skills and sensational flavor! The best news of all? These skills don't depend on butter, oils, salt, and other fattening, unhealthy ingredients.

This integrated approach eliminates confusion and ensures your success. By the time you return home you'll be prepared to embrace Pritikin living. By immersing yourself in a stay at Pritikin, you'll develop healthy habits and your taste buds will actually change. Cravings for salt, sugar and added fat will be a thing of the past.
