Recipe for Recovery

Today Jaywalker U students teamed up with the Solutions men for a cooking class taught by the one and only; Chef Brian.  Here at Jaywalker we believe in homemade meals being a recipe for success in recovery. A homemade meal gives our men a sense of community and accomplishment which for people in recovery was missing for so long. Jaywalker has its own garden of vegetables, herbs, and spices which allowed our men to use natural ingredients in their food instead of eating unhealthy processed foods. Processed foods tend to be high in sodium, fat, and added sugars; which has proven to be detrimental to living healthy. Living healthy lives has become a major part of the recovery process here at Jaywalker and we believe that it starts with a healthy homemade meal. Donnie Hagenbart Program Coordinator Jaywalker U

We are cookin’

Last week, Jaywalker U students had another one of their famous cooking classes with Chef Brian. This week’s class focused on mastering the art of making homemade pizza. Here at Jaywalker U we are trying to stay away from the normal college fast food diet and teach our guys a more healthy way to eat. Not only is homemade pizza a better caloric option but can also be a cheaper and tastier way to eat. Just another way the Jaywalker U students are continuing their education outside the classroom.

Chef Brian’s Thursday Cooking Class

Every two weeks Jaywalker Chef, Brian, spends an hour with the Jaywalker U men teaching them some of his famous recipes. Through our active addiction many of us lost our passions. Here at Jaywalker we try and help find these passions again and maybe even some new ones. Since becoming sober many of us have fallen in love with food, especially Chef Brian’s food. These cooking classes are a great way for the men to hopefully develop some new passions and eat some great food. Last cooking class was designating to learning some breakfast recipes. The JWU men learned four different ways to prepare eggs as well as a few different sides. Not only was this a great learning experience but it turns out the guys made some great breakfast. Thank you Chef Brian for sharing your knowledge with us and we can’t wait for the next class. Donnie Hagenbart…
