Food in Session
Your food education starts here!
We are on a mission to help you learn to cook and learn to eat- two simple things made complicated by the internet and those friends telling you that “you should” eat this or try that diet.

5 Ingredients to Stock Up On
1 Oats and whole grains like quinoa
Versatile from breakfast to dinner, whole grains can be combined with spices for flavor and veggies and beans for a complete meal.
2 Frozen fruit and vegetables
Stock up when you see a good sale at the grocery store. Mixed veggies are a good base for soups. Frozen fruit is perfect for protein smoothies.
3 Nuts and peanut butter
A meal in its self some days! Who hasn't had a big spoonful or two of peanut butter instead of cooking a meal on a busy night? Nuts are a filling snack and easy to take on the go.
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast
See a sale? Stock up and freeze chicken, along with any other lean meats, like turkey, bison or pork loin. You'll use it eventually so it's best to get more while it's on sale.
Packed with protein and fiber, beans are a quick alternative to meat. Try black bean enchiladas or add garbanzo beans to a salad.
What's a Macro??
Simply put, macronutrients, or "macros", are where we get calories to fuel our bodies. The three macros are fat, carbohydrate and protein. The 4th macro is well-known but less often counted on a diet.....alcohol. Here are a few examples of each of the first three macros:
Vegetable oils such as olive, canola, corn, grapeseed and macadamia
Rice and pasta
Bread, tortillas and crackers
Potatoes and corn
Beef and pork
Fish and shellfish
