Excited to be sharing College Healthy Cooking Tips with LSU CHAARG

LSU CHAARG was great! I had so much fun sharing my thoughts on college healthy cooking!  I shared tips to start healthy cooking with your first college cookbook and stock your pantry.  The girls really enjoyed all the  trim and terrific cookbooks as you can see from what they bought below.  Everyone was so receptive.  I then did a cooking demo of two favorite, simple recipes.  The Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle from KITCHEN 101 was a HUGE HIT.  They couldn’t believe how easy it was.  I was thrilled that so many of the girls were inspired to go home to cook!

Ex”The girls loved meeting Holly + everything she had to say was incredible! The girls loved her “eat whatever you want” attitude + it is so refreshing to hear someone say that! Nowadays you hear “don’t eat this, or that, or that either” but hearing someone say just the opposite was great! The recipes she shared with us were super quick, easy any college student could make them easily!” Morgan Simpson – LSU CHAARG Ambassador

I was honored to speak at LSU CHAARG Chapter last night about College Healthy Cooking

– what a great group of girls! LSU CHAARG stands for ‘Changing Health, Attitudes, + Actions to Recreate Girls’ – focussing on the right attitude of health and fitness in college aged girls. Health is so much more than what is on the outside – and I couldn’t agree more with their motto and passion!

 Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle Everyone Loved and Wanted To Go Make

With my Eating Well for Life’ presentation and food demonstration the girls learned about my passion for Trim and Terrific cooking and eating is all about balance, that food should taste great while still being healthy and easy to prepare! I whipped up some of my favorite recipes from my Trim and Terrific KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence, Mediterranean Layered Spread and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle for them to taste-test and see first hand just how easy it can be to eat deliciously while also enjoying healthier prepared meals. Thank you SO much Morgan for inviting me to be a part of such a wonderful organization!
