For many, the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is the side dishes. But butter-rich mashed potatoes and other traditional dishes are heavy, high-carb, and not particularly nutritious. No wonder you feel like you’re in a “food coma” after dinner.
In next month’s Thrive Kitchen class, Creative Thanksgiving Sides, we will learn to put some new twists on traditional favorites and create more interesting side dishes that are lighter and healthier too.
Class will be held on Wednesday, November 13th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Thrive Kitchen at Kaiser Permanente Mission Bay Medical Office Building, 1600 Owens Street in San Francisco. At the Thrive Kitchen, we emphasize having fun while getting a hands-on introduction to healthy cooking techniques.
We’ll be learning to cook tasty and crowd-pleasing side dishes that are as nutritious as they are delicious. Examples include healthy versions of cranberry sauce, salads, soups, and vegetable dishes.
Cost is $30 for Kaiser Permanente members and $40 for non-members and includes the meal we cook together. Registration is open and advance sign-ups are required. To reserve a space, email SFHealthEd@kp.org or call (415) 833-3450.
