Northern Arizona Healthcare offers free Healthy Basics cooking classes focused on plant-based nutrition
Northern Arizona Healthcare’s Healthy Basics cooking classes are here to help kick-start a healthy new lifestyle in 2020. This informative, motivating six-week series is free to community members as part of NAH’s continuous commitment to achieving its mission – Improving health, healing people. The first class is from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30, at Verde Valley Medical Center, 269 S. Candy Lane in Cottonwood, Conference Room B.
Healthy Basics classes help participants understand the value of choosing economical, plant-based foods that mean savings on grocery and medical bills. Eating a nutritious diet can greatly reduce risk of chronic non-communicable diseases and protect against heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Each one-hour class includes information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote health, along with a live cooking demonstration highlighting simple and nutritious recipes that anyone can easily recreate at home. All classes end with sampling the flavorful dishes prepared. Local culinary instructor Chris Kalinich, a certified Food for Life Instructor with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, will facilitate.
Classes are held weekly on Thursdays from January 30 through March 5. To find more information on the demos or to register for classes, call 928-214-2877.

Geology Hike at Red Rock State Park.
Occurs on the Second Sunday of the month, October – May.

Red Rock State Park is located at the base of the Mogollon Rim, the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. The escarpment is over 200 miles long and ranges in height from 2,000 to 3,000 feet.

Our monthly-guided geology hike will be held at 1:00 PM. Join our knowledgeable volunteers as they venture out on our trails and discuss how Sedona transformed into what we see today. This interpretive experience is for both the beginner and experienced hiker, lasting between 1½-2 hours with an elevation gain of 250 feet. Please bring water and wear suitable footwear.
Hike is included with park entrance fees. $7.00 ages 14+; $4.00 ages 7-13; free for ages 6 and under. If you have any questions, please call 928-282-6907. Red Rock State Park. 4050 Red Rock Loop Rd. Sedona, AZ.
