Eating healthier is a goal aspired to by most adults these days. And what better way to do it, than to learn to prepare easy, healthful meals that are fun to make. The Peter X. Kelly Teaching Kitchen at Hudson Valley Hospital Center is offering a series of such classes. Here's the schedule for the coming months:

Tuesday, December 10th. 2-3:30 PM. Winter Soups. As the weather gets cold, there are few things more comforting than a warm bowl of soup. Whether it is to share for the holidays, or to freeze for later, making a big batch of soup is a great way to utilize lots of vegetables and make a delicious healthy meal. ($15)

Wednesday, December 11th. 5 – 6:30 PM. Heart-Healthy Christmas Recipes. Traditional holiday dishes are fun to make and one of our favorite parts of December. Making your holidays a little more healthy is easy, and this class will show you that a healthy holiday can be incredibly delicious. Come learn some great ways to get into the winter season! ($15).

Tuesday, December 17th. 6-7:30 PM. Seafood Feasts. Many people eat fish for the holidays because of religious or cultural reasons. But fish is a healthy dining option that most Americans could make a more regular part of their diet. Prepared correctly, seafood is a delicacy that will make you feel as if your home dinner table is in a fancy restaurant. If fish is an unfamiliar ingredient, or if you just want to learn some great recipes and have barrels of fun, this will be a great class to attend. ($15).
