Participants will sample several dishes and learn how to save preparation time and improve digestion. They will also receive recipes and nutrition handouts.
The class costs $20 ($10 for CSU employees), which includes recipes and education materials. Lunch is provided as well. Participants can register online at http://nutritioncenter.colostate.edu or call 970-491-8615.
