These classes typically begin with a brief educational discussion about how nutrition and cooking can positively impact recovery. We then begin the cooking portion, which focuses on basic cooking techniques (chopping, sautéing, baking, mixing). Clients are then split into groups to prepare meals. We aim to help people feel more comfortable in the kitchen and confident in their ability to prepare a healthy and delicious meal. At the end, clients gather to enjoy the meal they prepared together.
During this one-hour class, we talk about all things nutrition! Topics include nutrition 101, nutrition during recovery, meal prepping and planning, intuitive and mindful eating, and more. Virtual events are also available. Interested in a particular topic? Please inquire!
