Well hello there! Welcome to Table for One: Big Bites on a Little budget.
At Table For One, our goal is simple. We are helping individuals obtain the best nutrition with the resources they have. We do this through the simple, tasty recipes we use and the nutrition lessons we teach.
This blog was started in conjunction with the Utah Food $ense Program. This program is a part of Utah State University Extension and is known nationally as SNAP- Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education).
Here in Cache Valley, Food $ense offers free nutrition and cooking workshops. At each class, new recipes are shared and tips on eating well and living a healthy life are taught. To find out more about these classes and how to attend, call 435-752-6263 or check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Food-ense-Cache-County/235176476651645. Food $ense offers free nutrition and cooking workshops throughout the state and can be found teaching classes all over in homes, grocery stores, schools and local farmers markets.

I am so glad to hear that you are learning a lot. I really appreciate the feedback. We would love guest posts, however, because we are a government funded program (SNAP- supplemental nutrition assistance program), it gets tricky having just anybody write our guest posts. Our guest posts are written by other nutrition education assistants or Extension agents that work in our office. I hope we can continue providing great information to get you excited about nutrition and cooking.
