Improving your diet can be as simple as adopting a few guidelines: Eat more fruits and vegetables, more whole and unprocessed foods, and more healthy fats. Beginning with an easy-to-prepare meal idea, we’ll uncover “hacks” to make the experience of preparing meals as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. In this class, you will build a collection of recipes to go back to again and again. Instead of drastic change, you’ll learn how to easily add healthier food choices a little at a time, to the level you are comfortable with.
In some classes the instructor will demonstrate and prepare a recipe, while a participant lends a hand. In other classes, everyone will prepare the recipe together. Everyone will share the meal at the end of the class, at which time participants can spend some time getting to know one another better, sharing stories and talking about what brings them to this class. Each participant will leave with a recipe to prepare at home, as well as a handout of a subject covered in class.

February Class 2023
Prepare a winter soup from your pantry. Barbara will introduce a basic formula for creating a winter soup from scratch, using foods and seasonings you are likely to have in your pantry. We’ll use vegetables that are in season for maximum freshness, taste and value for your money. We’ll talk about how to stock your pantry for healthier eating choices. This class will primarily be instructor-demonstrated.
Handout: Building a Healthy Pantry plus copy of recipe.
This class is donation-based for participants under 18 years old!
