DeTar helping to bring healthy cooking to the Crossroads

VICTORIA, Texas – To help people in the Crossroads stay healthy, DeTar Hospital has partnered with Healthy South Texas to have healthy cooking demonstrations each month.

Gayle Bludau, County Extension Agent with Texas A&M Agrilife Extension office, knows that cooking is hard when you’re always on the go.

“Our number one goal is to get people to eat healthy. If we teach them to cook with healthy recipes, that are economical, and don’t take long to cook, maybe people will start cooking at home and eating healthier,” Bludau says.

If getting healthier was in your new years resolution or just a personal goal you’ve set for yourself, this class is for you. The best part is, you don’t have to sign up or pay for it. Actually, the best part is eating the food that was made, and seeing for yourself how yummy healthy recipes can be.

“It’s every third Wednesday at DeTar north. Everyone is welcome, we have plenty of food here, plenty of samples, everyone gets to taste what we make. We have a great time every third Wednesday,” Bludau says.

If you would like more information, or want to know when the next class is, contact DeTar at 361-575-7441 and talk with Judith Barefield.
