Cooking and Nutrition


Soup’s On
There’s nothing quite so comforting as a hot, flavorful bowl of soup on a cool fall day or cold winter night. Soup can serve as a meal itself as it is quite filling and highly nutritious, plus it can stretch one’s meal planning dollars and freezes well. Come explore how quick and easy it is to prepare a soothing bowl of nutrition. Participants will learn how to prepare a creamy, pureed soup and a non-creamy (“chunky”) soup both low in calories with great health benefits from scratch.

She holds a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and has taught science and math at the high school level.

A Healthy Taste of Italy
When you think of Italian cuisine, do images of heavy dishes loaded with cheese or laden with heavy sauces come to mind? Real Italian food veers away from such ingredients. Come discover the bold flavors and health benefits of authentic Italian dishes that incorporate fresh vegetables, whole grains, and a variety of lean proteins, like chicken, fish and beans. Participants will prepare nutritious and easy main dishes from scratch that will rival anything you might order in a restaurant.
