A Training for Making Big Changes in the New Year

In a great start to the new year in January, we welcomed Grand Street Settlement Early Head Start, Neighbors Together Community Café, Services Now for Adult Persons, JSPOA Rockaway Blvd Senior Ceneter, BronxWorks Morris Innovative Senior Center, and BronxWorks Heights Neighborhood Senior Center! We made cheaper and nutritious alternatives to mainstays in granola, grain salads, and more. The vinaigrettes we made using fresh fruits and vegetables, such as apples and roasted red peppers are great ways to repurpose seconds or turning produce!  We also made roasted sweet potato, carrot, and parsnip fries with a yogurt dipping sauce which can be served as a snack or as part of a meal. Together we learned how to make easy, healthy, and cost-friendly meals good for all ages. We are looking forward to seeing our newest cohort back in six months for their next workshop about grains!
