Cooking Demonstration

We had a great time at our cooking demonstration as part of the Healthy Lifestyle Week. The classes were held over two Saturdays and we had a fantastic attendance. Thank you to all of you who came and participated. Kerrie has some photo's to share and will download them soon.

I just wanted to pass on a couple of great tips I learnt from people who attended. The first is that Nicola potatoes have the lowest GI of all white potatoes. We all know that low GI is great for a healthy diet!

Another interesting conversation I had with someone was about kidney beans. We include them in the meat sauce of the Nacho's recipe (which was demonstrated) and she felt her children wouldn't eat them. So we agreed to both try a new way next time. Mash them up with a fork and mix them in. Hidden from sight but retain the flavour. Great advice!
