Right Bite Cooking Class offers Healthier Options

Are you taking the right bites out of your food choices?

 

We all want to make healthier food choices, but sometimes the information can be hard to understand and there are competing opinions as to what is the healthier food choice.

Attend the Right Bite Cooking Class at the Cullman Extension office and maybe some of those food choice decisions will be easier – once you learn to navigate through the food aisles. The four classes include ideas on:

  • Portion Control
  • Reading the Nutrition Label
  • Choosing the Right Fat: Controlling Risk for Cardiovascular Disease
  • Carbohydrate and Fiber: Friend or Foe?
  • Seven Ways to Control Your Blood Pressure
Learn how to read a nutrition food label based on your health concerns

Throughout the four classes, we will incorporate some ways to look at food related information and how to make the best decision for you and your family –  based on your health concerns and lifestyle. There will be some food preparation and food tasting.

The dates for the Tuesday classes are: January 16, 23, 30, and February 6 at 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.

Contact the Cullman County ACES Office (256) 737-9386 to Register or Donna Shanklin at drs0009@auburn.edu  or 256-200-2997
