Last Tuesday we had a delicious, colorful, and (at times) messy night at the Nuke Your Food! program. High schoolers met up in the Cardinal Room to create some nommy noms, such as a mug cake! The twist on this cooking class was that we made everything in a mug and just using a microwave.
 
 
What was doubly awesome about the night was that we also got to decorate and keep our food receptacles (mugs) using ink-based Sharpies!
 
 
All you need to do is buy special ink-based/paint markers, decorate a ceramic mug, and bake it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees!

Yesterday we welcomed Kathleen an instructor from Pulsation Yoga for an invigorating yoga practice. We learned about the benefits of incorporating a regular yoga practice into our lives. Besides improving flexiblity and building strength, yoga can give us an energy boost, provide balance in our busy lives, and help us relax.

For the second part of the program, Paulina & Erica from Pure Juice talked about making healthy, delicious smoothies. They demonstrated how to make three of their most popular smoothies, complete with samples for all participants! Green Goddess was my favorite - stop by there and let me know which ones you like the best!
