Valor Health, Emmett, Idaho- Valor Health Hospital hosted its first Healthy Cooking class of the year with the aim of easing weeknight cooking stress. Attendance capacity was full in the interactive, hands-on class that gave tips on healthy foods that can replace less-healthy options, how spices can be used to flavor food instead of butter or salt, and websites that help find recipes based on what ingredients you have on hand.
Taught by Valerie Lawrence, Registered Dietician, attendees enjoyed discussion time, activities focused on making meals from what is currently on sale at the local grocery store and making one of three highlighted recipes, with all recipes given to participants. The next Healthy Cooking Class is expected to be in March. For more information, contact Laurel Whittemore at 208-488-6218
