Healthy Living Kitchen

Learn to properly fuel your body

When you visit our Healthy Living Kitchen, you’ll get connected with nutritionists and health/wellness professionals that are excited to share how food can be used to benefit your body—whether it’s to boost energy, fight inflammation or reduce stress.

Cooking classes

Cooking classes will give you (and your family) an opportunity to learn from nutritionists and health/wellness professionals that are excited to share how food can be used to benefit your body. Our certified cooking facilitators will guide the class through the preparation of a meal, with the option for participants to assist in prepping the food.  You’ll complete the class by sampling the food you learned to prepare and take home the recipes used during class for reference. This month we are celebrating Earth Day all month with a variety of plant based, whole food recipes.

There will be time to enjoy the prepared food together, and open presents too. Birthday parties allow you to pick the food and whether you’d like to include an additional art or fitness activity at the Y.
