UF/Brevard Extension Service to Host Virtual Cooking School to Help Prepare ‘A Healthy Table’
By Space Coast Daily // February 5, 2021
Registration will close on February 23
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have turned to cook more meals at home.
Cooking meals and eating at home has many benefits. When preparing meals, you can select the ingredients and choose healthy recipes lower in saturated fats, sodium, and sugar.
When eating out, we tend to eat more food. You can more easily control your portion sizes when eating at home.
Remember to include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your main dishes and side dishes.
Finally, preparing and eating meals together is not only a fun way to teach healthy eating habits and cooking skills, but it is also a great way to connect with each other at the end of the day.
UF/Brevard Extension Service invites you to join “A Healthy Table: Virtual Cooking School.” In the virtual cooking school, you will learn how to prepare healthy meals for your family through self-paced online lessons and hands-on cooking activities.
You will have opportunities to engage in monthly live virtual cooking demonstrations and interactive learning experiences.
Register before February 9 and save 20% off the ticket price. Early registrants gain access to a bonus class and kick-off event. Tickets are on sale for $19.99 until February 9th and $25 thereafter.
Registration will close on February 23. Once registered, you will receive the Zoom class link and the link to the class website.
