The special techniques of these classes consist of; Macrobiotic, organic, sugar free, dairy free, wheat free, high fiber and vegetarian. The classes are taught from a hands-on environment so the students get a feel for the different tastes and textures of the foods. The students are taught the nutritional value of the foods and why they are so beneficial for their health. Included in the education is how different foods are beneficial for the prevention of certain degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, allergies and emphysema. Helpful and unique cooking techniques are also taught to the students for future use in their own kitchens.

For at home education Ms. Wilson wrote and self published a cookbook, Perceptions In Healthy Cooking, in 2001. It contains over 110 original recipes, an extensive introduction and an informative glossary. Her cookbook is sold at local health food stores and through her web site.
