Cooking with Heart
"The classes are an innovative educational opportunity that can help people take preventative measures to avoid cardiac events like a heart attack. Teresa presents the information in a way that makes it easy and fun. She teaches knife skills, kitchen zones, and strategic places to put food in your refrigerator. It's all about taking baby steps and incorporating little twists into your lifestyle, your daily living. This was a very fun way to learn more about our health. I am grateful to Trinity for offering such a wonderful opportunity." - Cooking with Heart participant
