HOOVER—Staying healthy can be a challenge, especially with demanding schedules and little time to plan and cook meals. St. Vincent’s One Nineteen is here to make it a little easier with the 30 Minute Meals for Families cooking class on Jan. 28 from 11 a.m. to noon.
During the hour-long class, participants will learn how to put together five nutritious and family friendly meals, simple enough to prepare after work or school activities.
“We have promised we will provide five recipes that someone can go in and cook simply in 30 minutes,” St. Vincent’s One Nineteen registered dietitian Donna Sibley said.
St. Vincent’s One Nineteen registered wellness dietitian Jessica Cox will lead the class and prepare three of the five meals in the facility’s teaching kitchen for participants to sample.
Cox will also discuss ways to use leftovers to create a new dish, and how to incorporate nutritional foods into daily life and “put into action,” Sibley said.
At the end of the class, participants will each receive a set of the five simple recipes to bring home and try.
“It’s a work week worth of menus,” Sibley said. “They’re simple enough that people will be able to prepare them (quickly).”
The class costs $12 per person. To reserve a seat, call 408-6550.
