Wipe that grimace off your face and open your mind.

These are examples of vegetarian dishes that will be prepared and discussed as part of a Natural Lifestyle Cooking seminar to be offered in Hagerstown starting next week.

There will be four two-hour sessions - Tuesday evenings at 7 - from March 27 through April 17 at Review and Herald Publishing Association on Oak Ridge Drive.

The seminar is offered by three local Seventh-day Adventist churches - Hagerstown, Williamsport and Willow Brook in Boonsboro - along with Williamsport Retirement Village.

It is a fundamental belief of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that the body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and is to be cared for "intelligently," according to the church's Web site at www.adventist.org.

Adventists promote a healthy lifestyle by abstaining from alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs, says Pastor Jim Hoffer of Hagerstown Seventh-day Adventist Church. "We also promote, but do not require, vegetarianism and avoidance of caffeine beverages," he says.

The seminar will be hosted by Sheri Bergman.

Bonnie Humphreys, a diabetes clinical specialist and certified diabetes educator at Robinwood Medical Center in Hagerstown, will present the first program on baking bread and making breakfast a better meal. Joyce Baer will prepare the featured foods.

Rosalia Coffen, a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and nutrition consultant with the Diabetes Center at Robinwood, is a lifelong vegetarian. Her presentation, Planning a Balanced Menu, will include a discussion of the Food Guide Pyramid and the vegetarian food guide pyramid - a trapezoid - developed at Loma Linda University in California.

"No single food has all nutrients," Coffen says. She believes it takes a lot more knowledge to be a "total vegetarian" or vegan than a lacto-ovo vegetarian, one who includes dairy and eggs in the diet.

Coffen also plans to mention two other "extremely critical" components of a healthy, natural lifestyle - exercise and water.

Julie Lyles will prepare the food for Coffen's presentation.

Faith Crumbly, a "total vegetarian," will present a layperson's perspective in her program on getting adequate protein in a vegetarian diet. Brenda Griffin will demonstrate food preparation for that session.

The final session, Simple, Healthful Desserts, will be presented by Joann Ashworth with demonstration by Carolyn Anderson. A sugarless apple pie will be on the menu. They have not decided on other items, but Ashworth says the emphasis will be on the "light and the fresh."
