Eat Well to Live Well
Mohawk partnered with Bradley Wellness Center to host a pilot program for healthy cooking class.
Mohawk recently partnered with Bradley Wellness Center in Dalton, GA to host a pilot program for healthy cooking classes to a small group of employees and spouses on the Benefits health plan. The premise of the classes is “eat well to live well,” because food can taste good and be good for you.
Around 20 members participated in the class that included cooking demonstrations by Melissa Krell, Sodexo Executive Chef and Anthony Moon, Sodexo Retail and Catering Manager. Licensed dietitians Jaimee Cooper and Brenda James discussed the importance of fiber and nutrition while learning the proper portions for your plate. Participants were encouraged to start making small changes to form healthy habits because over time, it soon becomes a way of life.
Participants received a seven-day meal plan complete with groceries. The meal plan focused on foods that are lower in calories, cholesterol, sodium, sugar, and dairy but are high in fiber and flavor. Recipes came from Healthy Eating for California, Sodexo and Pauline Maddox, AGNP, RN, Mohawk’s Clinical Project Manager.
Recipes included citrus garlic tilapia with brown rice and asparagus, Moroccan lentil soup, egg white frittata with fruit, almond crusted chicken and broccoli.
The cooking class received great feedback from all the participants.
“I would like to thank you and all involved in the healthy cooking class,” Suzette Goley wrote. “We were taught how to experiment with different spices to change the taste of our food. Our chef prepared Tilapia with garden vegetables and rice seasoned with Lawry’s Salt-Free 17 Seasoning that was absolutely delicious. The dish only took 20 to 25 minutes to bake in parchment paper. While the Tilapia was baking, we were also shown how to make a healthy strawberry & peach smoothie that was also delicious. After we had sampled the first smoothie, spinach was added to it to make it even healthier. I can say I have prepared the 7-day menu plan, and all recipes took a reasonable amount of time to prepare and cook. I never knew good and healthy could be used in the same sentence until this class!”
The pilot program consists of three healthy cooking classes, so participants from the June class have two more classes to look forward to in July and August. The focus of these classes with be on how to make and enjoy healthy desserts and snacks, a reminder that you can always enjoy those special treats – and keep them healthy too. The participants will also receive support along the way over the next two months, receiving postcards with healthy tips and recipes to continue working on changing habits to eat healthier.
