Food Sense – Healthy Cooking on a Budget


You can shop, cook and eat on a budget. Too often inexpensive packaged foods provide poor nutrition and have negative effects on the health of our families. Food Skills for Families will help you create healthy meals at a low cost, and have fun doing it. The best thing is you’ll enjoy food that is tastier and more nutritious and you will know exactly what is in it.

The program features flavourful recipes from around the world and teaches you how to modify recipes and cook from scratch. You’ll learn how to make salad dressings from scratch, how to make delicious and healthy soups and how to add some variety with inexpensive grains.

You will discover that good taste and a smart budget can go hand-in-hand.
