Cooking seems to be a lost art as our lives are becoming too filled with activities: taking the kids to karate practice or dance recitals, home projects, and finishing up last minute-to-dos for work. We reach for more convenient foods like picking up dinner from restaurants or buying it pre-packaged and frozen. In order to get back to our food source, we need to start learning how to cook simple and quick wholesome meals without the extra additives and junk that are not natural for our bodies.
New research has shown that healthy cooking has shown that it improves healthy habits and lifestyle changes (Hartman, C et al. “Importance of Cooking Skills for Balanced Food Choices” Appetite 2013. 65: 125-131).
KU Integrative Medicine “Healing Foods Kitchen” hosts cooking classes several times monthly for adults and we will now be hosting cooking classes for teens:
Our first class will be on November 21st, 2013 from 4 pm to 5 pm and we’ll be making simple, healthy and quick smoothies so teens can make them on their own:
Chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie
Choco Berry Green Smoothie
Choco raspberry avocado smoothie
Mango Vanilla Smoothie
Pumpkin Orange Chai Smoothie
So please call 913-588-6208 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for registration or more information. Cost for smoothie class is $20.
