Here is a list of upcoming classes where menu items include, but are not limited to, fruits and vegetables.

If Italian is your style, then Southern Style Italian is at CMC on Jan. 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. This class focuses on fish and seafood and rich Italian sauces.

Does stuffed French toast or the perfectly cooked egg make your taste buds dance? Breakfast For Dinner will expand beyond your basic bacon and eggs and help you create simple meals that are nutritious, inexpensive and easy to make on a weeknight. That class is slated for Jan. 20 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at CMC.

In February, right when motivation to keep cooking healthy can wane, Miller offers up the classes Curries, Down South on the Skinny and Glamorous Veggies. The Curries class is Feb. 1 and will take a trip to India and Thailand with spicy homemade curries and exotic ingredients. Ever want to have your shrimp and grits a little lighter? Down South on the Skinny is Feb. 13 and Glamorous Veggies is Feb. 24.
