Health Starts in the Kitchen

Learn how to downsize the number of people you are cooking for without downsizing taste or nutrition.

As we age and our kids move out of the home, we can find ourselves suddenly cooking for just one person or two people instead of a table-full. If you aren’t quite sure how to cook for a smaller number, you aren’t alone. Many older adults end up frustrated as they struggle to find the right recipe ingredients and portion sizes for themselves. This can often lead to serious nutritional challenges like eating less often or choosing a processed option over fresh.

No matter if you are a seasoned home chef or just looking to learn the basics, our time together will be beneficial! We’ll learn:

  • Cooking skills via a live demonstration
  • Food safety basics
  • Nutritional challenges and solutions for older adults
  • How to effectively meal plan
