Virtual Community Class: Cooking with Melissa

September 8, 2021 @ 2:30 pm EDT

Lets get in the kitchen and cook something good for our soul and brain health! This class will focus on healthy summer salads using healthy ingredients. She discuss how these salads can work as a side dish…or stand alone as a meal because of the ingredients used. Summer is still sizzling and these salads are cool and refreshing. We will focus on the healthy benefits of salads, some reminiscing, and popular summer activities related to salads. While we cook, we will practice mindfulness, heighten our senses and recall past memories. So grab your measuring spoons and spatulas…and join us for “Cooking with Melissa.”
