Nutrition Kitchen: Basics of Cooking for Busy People

Simple techniques for cooking healthy and delicious food at home.

“Hey babe, what should we do for dinner tonight?”
“Oh, uh, we could go to that restaurant down the street…”
“We just ate there the other day and spent $60.”
“Yeah…maybe we should just go to Subway.”
“Again? I’m sick of Subway. Should we just eat cereal?”
“I think we have some eggs…”
“Whatever — let’s just go to that restaurant.”

If this sounds like you, this course is for you. A lot of people don’t know what they’re going to eat for lunch or dinner, and then end up eating fast food or going out where they spend a lot more money than they would like. By learning a few simple cooking techniques, you can eat healthy, delicious food without spending a lot of time or money.

This is not a traditional cooking class in that the focus is on specific cooking techniques rather than recipes (although, you will also find many simple recipes). You’ll learn how to prepare food; how to cook meats, vegetables, and grains in several ways; how to bring a lot of flavor to your meals by putting together flavor profiles composed of certain spices; and how to safely clean your cooking area. Throughout the course, you’ll also learn about basic nutrition (e.g., carbs aren’t the enemy).

Here’s what the course covers:

  • Select the right cooking equipment
  • Stock up on basic ingredients useful for any recipe
  • Cut meats and vegetables safely and efficiently
  • Cook meats, vegetables, and grains using various techniques
  • Select the right spices for various flavor profiles
  • Meal plan and streamline your life
  • Eat delicious, nutritious food without spending too much time or effort

Due to the COVID situation, I am making all educational offerings free until May 31. Enjoy!
