"Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you even as your soul is getting along well." 3 John 2 (NIV)

Welcome to Culinary Rx brought to you by the International Health Commission of the AME Church - in collaboration with Rouxbe Online Culinary School and the Plantrician Project. This Online course will help build confidence in the kitchen, especially with preparing delicious meals from vegetables and fruits, whole grains and beans, and other foods from the bounty of the land.

Join Us! The AME Community is Excited to Get Cooking!

We invite you to put your Faith in Action with the Culinary Rx Wellness Journey to rejunevate your body and your health. Join us to see how delicious it can be to adopt a healthier approach to cooking delicious foods that your family will love.

Bishop Francine A. Brookins - "Please don't give your kids potato chips and sugar-water for breakfast, even if that is how you were raised. Give them food that helps them thrive and live. Take time to learn a new way and grow your own food together. Your lives will be transformed and revived in ways you can't presently imagine."

Reverend Dr. Miriam Burnett, Medical Doctor, International Health Commission Medical Director - "When we do not offer healthy food choices to those with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancers, we are forcing them to eat unhealthy food at church. We must offer healthy food choices at church."

Reverend Dr. Natalie Mitchem, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, International Health Commission Executive Director, DipACLM - Diplomate of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine - "The Culinary Rx is not about becoming a vegetarian or vegan. It is about learning about the phyto-nutrients created by God found only in whole plant-based foods that can help prevent and reverse diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancers and more. Eat more "whole" plant-based meals and start promoting health, healing, restoration, regeneration and wellness."

Dr. Scott Stoll, Rouxbe's Medical Doctor and Co-founder of The Plantrician Project - "Cooking should be a joyous act, done with your family and community to support your mind, body, and soul - truly a time when the church can heal itself from within."
