Week 3: Learn to Shop, Cook, Eat: Outside of the Box w/Chrisetta Mosley

Tonight marked my third session with the group at Fruit Valley Elementary School. The first two weeks of the program we've been covering the basics -- how to plan and grocery SHOP. This session we started with a brief introduction on Beans & Whole Grains and then the fun part COOKing and EATing.

On the menu: 

Hummus served with crudités
Fruit Seed Wheat Berry Bowl
Brown Bag Popcorn with Honey Butter

The ladies enjoyed all the recipes. And music to my ears: They said they could and would make the recipes at home.  I love what I do!

Next week: Fresh Produce -- Fruits & Vegetables.


  1. Your energy is contagious, you make cooking fun and educational, your recipes are healthy and fun for all ages, keep up the great work, I've been enjoying my time learning out of the box, thank you.
    Nicole from fruit valley school

  2. Ahh, Nikki thank you. I'm so glad to hear that your learning and having fun too!

    I'm proud of you for embracing the OUTSIDE of the Box concept.

    See you next week!
