Lesson Designer

A family health crisis compelled Sue Gregg to reexamine what she learned in foods courses while acquiring a home economics degree at Washington State University. Her research raised the question: “How can I replace nutrient-depleted, processed foods with wholesome, nutrient-dense foods that my family will eat?” The results? Over 800 whole foods recipes everyone can enjoy. She’s done TV cooking shows, provided meals for 30 to 125 campers daily at Campus by the Sea on Catalina Island for seven summers and at Campamento Citlali in Vale de Bravo, Mexico for two summers without the benefit of electricity. She taught cooking in Kenya, Malawi, Okinawa, Honduras and revisited cooking class friends in Russia 14 times. Sue takes pleasure inviting neighborhood children over to fix a dish or even a whole meal they can serve their parents. Her husband of 53 years, Rich, partners with her to photograph kitchen and dining scenes and edit teaching materials.

Courses by Sue

The Whole Foods Cooking class taught by Sue Gregg, who has appeared on TV cooking shows and now offers a whole foods cooking curriculum, is meant to be studied by the entire family so even the youngest can take part and learn how to cook at an early age. The classes are best followed sequentially, as the recipes and cooking techniques increase in difficulty as they progress. Students learn how to cook breakfasts, soups, finger foods, and main dishes. There are step-by-step photo demonstrations, along with printouts that answer many of the questions that come up concerning the whole foods cooking method. Any student can benefit from this class as it not only teaches cooking, but also presents resource materials that are especially interesting to students with an interest in nutrition and health.
