Healthy Eating Tip: Indulge in a Cooking Class
In honor of National Nutrition Month®, my colleague Robyn Webb shares her tips to help you savor the flavor of eating right.
Start with the Right Foods
The entire key to eating well but with delicious flavor is to be prepared. Start by first building a pantry. Include canned beans, whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa, canned tomatoes, mustard, vinegars, olive oil, low sodium soy sauce and low sodium broth. Always keep citrus fruit, garlic, onions on hand.
Learn to Cook
I highly suggest you seek out a great cooking class to participate in. There is only so far a written recipe or technique will go; you need hands on experience. And most importantly, take a knife skills class- an invaluable skill!
