OXFORD, Miss. – Remember that New Year’s resolution you made to eat better and lose weight? The University of Mississippi Nutrition Clinic has classes to help you stay on track.
During February, Mary Roseman, a registered and licensed dietitian and UM associate professor of nutrition and hospitality, and Gillon Wells, graduate assistant, will conduct a series of healthy cooking classes. The focus of the classes is to encourage healthy eating habits among individuals and families.
“This class is great for those wanting to know healthy cooking techniques and better understand nutrition in a fun, relaxed setting,” Roseman said. “And it can be useful for those who never or rarely cook but would like to.”
The cooking classes are scheduled for Tuesday evenings at Lenoir Hall, running 5:30-7:30 p.m. Feb. 11, 18 and 25. They address a variety of topics, including increasing fruit and vegetable intake, healthy substitutions, food safety and more. The classes are hands-on, and participants will cook a variety of recipes, try new foods and learn how to make healthier decisions.Read the story …
