Vegetables are NOT gross!

You won’t think they're gross anymore after coming to the Nutrition Class at the South Franklin Community Center! Raven and Angela work with the Food $ense Program and the Utah State University Extension to provide this free class at the center. This summer with the program “Viva Vegetables”, they are going to talk all about how to make poor, misunderstood vegetables TASTY! June was all about Peas. On the first day Angela taught the importance of eating vegetables and the good they do for our body. Then she taught the kids how to make a delicious dish. It was a hit! Click here for the recipe. The next day Raven showed us how to be healthy and exercise while having fun, then made a tasty cottage cheese and chives dip for snap peas.
Don’t miss next month which will be all about green beans. Oh yeah!

Angela had a very captive audience the whole night. Everyone wanted to know how to make peas taste good.

The finished product!

Raven's cottage cheese dip was a success for adults and kids.

Exercising is an important part of being healthy! We played a fun relay game where we had to run with a balloon in between our knees and pass it to our teammate.
