The Chickasaw Nation teaches healthy meal preparation with the “Get Fresh!” series of entertaining cooking shows, open to the public at no charge, at Chickasaw Nation Nutrition Services sites in Ardmore, Purcell, Duncan and Ada, as well as Ada’s Family Life Center.

Shows consist of live, interactive cooking demonstrations led by specialists who sprinkle in bits of healthy knowledge as they go. Their nutrition education is science-based and grounded in the United States Department of Agriculture's “MyPlate” program.

When the dish is done, attendees get to taste the fruits of their labor.

On the table with these culinary classes are new recipes and skills meant to boost a family’s everyday eating experiences.

In June, attendees can expect to learn about and consume lentil salad, three sisters salad, black bean and avocado salad as well as banana poppy seed muffins and orange banana frosty.
