We have begun a Cooking Matters class with the Junior League of Boca Raton and very excited to be working with the Housing Authority of Dixie Manor. Week 1 was very successful and our lesson focused on “My Plate”. The participants were eager to begin the nutrition and cooking portions of the class. Nancy, our nutrition intern, discussed some ways of balancing your diet by focusing on the main food groups. Janie, a mother of 2 children really enjoyed the lecture and talked about her experience with food. She kept on talking about the Turkey Taco recipe and wanted to practice the recipe at home. “ I feel healthier already” she said. Stay tuned for Week 2 and our lecture on Fruits, Vegetables, and Whole Grains!
