“One of the important requirements for learning how to cook is that you also learn how to eat.”
— Julia Child

What we eat and how we care for our bodies has a very powerful effect on our health and quality of life. Grey Bears strives to include a balanced assortment of primarily vegetables and fruits, and healthy grains, legumes and other healthy staples in the weekly brown bags we deliver. That’s because we recognize fresh produce contains important nutrients, phytochemicals and other elements that keep us healthy.

These simple and delicious recipes – including some by Chef Poppy who offers monthly cooking classes at Grey Bears – feature informative food facts, recent research and seasonal foods. Bon appetit!
