Learn how to support a healthy body and mind through your food choices. This virtual workshop will cover the basics of nutrition, how to build nourishing meals and snacks, and simple tips to incorporate healthy eating habits as a busy college student.

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I want to eat healthy, but it’s too expensive,” then this virtual workshop is for you! Join us as we learn how to plan, shop for, and prepare healthy and budget-friendly meals. 

This virtual cooking workshop begins with a short discussion around healthy eating and then moves to the cooking experience, where students follow along with instructor step-by-step as they prepare a tasty and budget-friendly recipe. Afterwards, everyone will enjoy the meal together in (virtual) community.
