Healthy Cooking With Holiday Favorites

Courtesy of Gina Aurand, DEA, Foods & Nutrition at River Valley Extension District

While many of us like to think that the Holidays are the times we don’t have to worry about calories, unfortunately many holiday favorites are loaded with extra fats, and calories that most of us don’t need. River Valley Extension District Agent Gina Aurand will be presenting Cooking Healthy for the Holidays throughout the River Valley District. In this lesson she will show you how to take traditional Holiday recipes and by making small changes improve the healthiness of the recipe. Learn how to look for fats and calories that may be hiding in some of your favorite recipes and how you can make small changes to improve them for your family. She will be presenting this lesson on Tuesday November 5th at 10:00 a.m. in the River Valley Washington County Office meeting room. She will again present the lesson at 2:00 p.m. in River Valley Republic County Office meeting room. She will also present the lesson on Wednesday, November 6th at 10:00 a.m. at the Cloud County meeting room in the basement of the courthouse. She will again present the lesson at 2:00 p.m. in the River Valley Clay County Office meeting room. Please contact your local River Valley District Office for more information or to RSVP to attend.
