WESTFIELD – As food prices climb, many residents are looking for ways to cut their grocery bills. The Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County is offering a free class that will teach you how to do just that and eat healthier foods at the same time.
“How to Enjoy a Balanced Diet on a Balanced Budget,” a two-hour course that covers all the basics of planning, shopping, and cooking, will be held on Wednesday, May 18, at 7 p.m. in the new county building at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield.
Prepared, processed foods are expensive and typically high in unhealthy ingredients like sugar, bleached white flour, and fat. Participants in the class will learn how the switch to healthier foods can help save money, trim waistlines, and lead to better nutrition and overall wellness. Topics include planning menus around low-cost foods, cutting down on waste in the kitchen, and spotting the best deals in supermarkets.
The class is free but pre-registration is required by contacting Digna Torres at the Extension offices, 1-908-654-9854 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
