Pawhuska, Oklahoma---The last evening of the Commodity Kitchen Table Healthy Cooking class was Tuesday, February 11, 2020. Participants had a hands-on learning experience over the past four weeks learning how to cook healthier using less salt, sugar, and fats, and make it taste great. They have learned about nutrition and how to incorporate the best choices to get carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals in their families’ meals.
The last night of class, they also learned how to use the instant pot that each family took home for attendance, and made a delicious pot of beef and vegetable stew. This night, they learned about healthy grains and the importance of adding fiber to their diets by creating their own 100% whole wheat bread along with a vegetable rotini salad and a dessert full of fruit and low in fat and sugar.
The class is a collaboration between Public Health Nursing, Food Distribution, and the Diabetes program. Stay tuned for the next class to be held in the spring and hosted by the Hominy community.
