Everyone participates 'hands-on' to prepare and enjoy nutritionist-approved, themed, healthy recipes together! With the guidance of your dietitian/nutritionist, not only will you prepare and enjoy your creations, but probably pick up a tip or fun fact about the recipes and ingredients used along the way. You don't have to know how to cook to join us! If you do know how to cook, I invite you to come and share your experience and knowledge and maybe even pick up a new recipe or two to bust the routine of 'the same old thing for dinner'.
All classes use whole foods, focusing on the importance of cooking with seasonal, local ingredients that are sustainable and organic, whenever possible. Making healthy food taste delicious all while showing you how easy it is to prepare.
After all, if we need to fuel our bodies a minimum of three times daily for the rest of our lives for health, energy, and a long life...shouldn't everyone learn to cook healthier?
