Fun Fridays: Cooking with Nicolette
September 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Fun Fridays offer a refreshing mid-day break from work to indulge in physical, mental, or creative activity.
Not a chef? Not a problem. Nicolette Maggiolo, RD, provided a brief presentation on nutrition and mental health. Then she whipped up some fun refreshing recipes live from her kitchen to show the audience how quick and simple it is to prepare food that fuel your physical and mental health, too!
You will find the copies of the recipes she used and many more at the Nutrition Services at Home Base page. Here are links to the recipes Nicolette used during her session:
– Overnight Oats
– Sautéed Chicken with Apples and Rosemary
