Home culinarians seeking tips on healthy cooking basics are in luck.
Starting Saturday, St. Petersburg's Azalea Recreation Center will host a "practical healthy cooking classes" from 10:30 a.m. to noon every Saturday for four weeks, according to a press release.
Register nurse and certified health coach Tami Cody Nicholas, of Practical Balance Health on Central Avenue, will lead the center's courses with recipes she's crafted. However, students will be exposed to hands-on learning, assisting Nicholas along the way.
The four-week series costs $80. Topics will range from introductory courses on healthful cooking to stove-top and oven food fixings using ingredients like grains, legumes, nuts and veggies.
