Health Cooking Class: Balancing a Healthy Meal

10/4/2022 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Health classes can range from food as a prevention strategy to food as part of therapeutic treatment of a diagnosed condition.

A healthy eating plan includes balanced meals including heart healthy levels of fat, protein and sodium.  In this class, you will:

  • Relate pairing proteins and plants to managing glucose levels.
  • Identify food groups that provide heart healthy proteins, fats and sodium.
  • Prepare a carbohydrate-modified side dish for a meal.
  • Cook a lean protein and vegetable entrée in less than 30 minutes.

Culinary Medicine classes involve preparing several recipes to learn basic culinary techniques while engaging in conversation related to the food-medicine connection. Participants taste the recipes the group has prepared and then set goals for using their new skills at home.
