In this cooking class, you’ll learn how to make grab-and-go lunches for easier meal prep and less stress. Delight the ones you love by adding hidden sparkle to their lunch. The recipes and tips can help you put together five days of healthy, thrifty meals even if you are staying home.
Thanks to Callene Ryan, then a nutrition graduate student at Meredith College, who helped develop this class and the sixteen-page handout with recipes that you can download below. I’m thrilled to share the video of the session we taught for the Worksite Wellness Program at Meredith.
About Callene Ryan
Callene is a delight to work with. She graduated from Meredith College soon after we finished the video and is now a Professional Nutritionist. Here she is with her husband Sean, son Conner, and daughter Cameron.
I have always been interested in healthcare, from working in Emergency Medical Services, obtaining an undergraduate degree in Biology in which I was able to study Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Biochemical processes, and finally transitioning into the study of Nutrition. Being in different aspects of healthcare has shown me how interconnected they are, and how health is affected by and affects all of them. It also leads to the development of strategic, integrated assessment and planning in the care of patients. Incorporating the knowledge of the effects of Nutrition on long term and acute medical conditions in a Holistic manner allows a patient to not only recover and heal but engage in the process of achieving optimal health and wellness.
In our family, nutrition comes first. From planning meals for vacations, learning campfire meals for Girl Scouts, taking snacks to soccer games, and weekly family meals, every member’s opinion is taken into account.
