Come learn more about easy, healthy cooking

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH - By Afua Daines

Food is some­thing that should be sa­vored and en­joyed, and the en­ergy put into it to give us not only the nu­tri­tion we need but also the es­sen­tial min­er­als and en­zymes re­quired to live a good vi­brant life.

My name is Afua Daines and I am the host of Macey’s weekly Cooking Cor­ner. We meet ev­ery Thurs­day at 7 p.m. to en­joy healthy, nu­tri­tious and easy meals, snacks and treats made from scratch. At­ten­dance is free of charge.

Food plays a ma­jor part in my life. It is the fuel that keeps my en­gine run­ning - that is, my body is my en­gine. The wrong fuel ends up slow­ing me down or, worse, mak­ing me sick, and my im­mune sys­tem starts to shut down. At the Cooking Cor­ner, we want you to see how easy it is to pre­pare and eat nu­tri­tious food with­out com­pro­mis­ing the taste. Chil­dren will love it! Last week we had the lovely Amal T from Le­banon who is now living in Maple­ton. She cre­ated a yummy dish, snack and dessert that were healthy and easy to make. And you get to taste this!

The fol­low­ing sched­ule lists the vis­i­tors that will be at­tend­ing the show on up­com­ing Thurs­days:

April 2: John the Chili man – won the lo­cal Chili con­test. April 9: Pa­tri­cia – real Mex­i­can food. April 16: Charisse Decker – easy pasta salad and co­conut pie.

April 23: Mandy Reese – what you can do with veggies?

April 30: Reva – lo­cal nurse and health nut – av­o­ca­dos and choco­late.

In May, we have more chefs and cooks and African cooking that will be in­tro­duced. If you wish to par­tic­i­pate, please con­tact me at and let me know what you wish to cook or if you want to know more about the sho,w you can reach me at 435-773-8280.

Amal T from Le­banon re­cently joined Afua Daines, host of Macey’s weekly Cooking Cor­ner, to teach those at­tend­ing about Le­banese cooking. The public is in­vited to at­tend the free weekly Cooking Cor­ner shows each Thurs­day evening.
