Beautiful Inside & Out: Feed Me! Nutrition & Cooking IV

Last Friday was our last week of getting our chef skills on! The theme of our cooking class was vegan baking! We made vegan biscuits and a variety of fillings (like oven-fried chicken, roasted red peppers, and homemade nutella) to make an epic Biscuit Bar!

Here are some pics of us in action!

Beautiful Inside & Out: Feed Me! Nutrition & Cooking III

For last week's cooking class, we decided to take a culinary vacation to the Caribbean!

The menu was Jerk Chicken, Coconut Rice & Peas, and Papaya & Avocado Salad, all of which were healthy ans SUPER delicious!

We learned about what is healthy about Caribbean cuisine, and also some great techniques to make our ethnic foods healthier such as swapping out animal lard for healthier oils and fats or adding more veggies into our rice & peas!

Check out the action from last week:

Beautiful Inside & Out: Feed Me! Nutrition & Cooking II

SMART Youth continued our cooking series, with last week's menu involving pizza...with a creative twist!

Instead of using regular ol' flour to create out pizza crust, we made the crust with cauliflower.

Yup, you read that correctly. Cauliflower!

This healthier (and gluten-free) alternative was just as delicious as regular pizza!
