Budget-friendly, simple recipes selected by Janelle Glick, wellness dietitian at Lancaster General Health, featured seasonal vegetables and fruits during the Factory Ministries Cooking Adventure.
The six-class program, held from April to September 2017, was offered to community members to learn how to make healthy versions of their favorite recipes. The classes focused on recipes that include more vegetables and fruits, substitute whole grains for refined grains, and increase fiber. Class participants, ranging from school-age children to adults, took part in cooking and preparing the recipes, as well as cleaning up.
