Creek County Literacy Program Announces Free Workshop – What’s That Weird Thing in the Produce Department?

Free workshop introduces exotic and unusual produce from the grocery

Have you ever walked by a display at the grocery store and wondered, “What is that weird thing?” This informational workshop introduces exotic and unusual produce from the grocery and is presented by Jona Knoble, a Nutritional Health Coach with Natural Grocers at 9137 East 71st Street in Tulsa.

Knoble’s workshop will cover a variety of exotic and unusual produce, as well as the importance of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables for good health. Her live cooking demonstration will provide easy and nutritious ways to serve these unique fruits and vegetables. The workshop will be held at the Library Annex, 15 North Poplar Street in Sapulpa on Thursday, November 13 at 5:30m. The dishes Knoble prepares will be available to sample. There will be recipes and handouts available.

The presenter, Jona Knoble, graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and later attended Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Columbia University to pursue her path of becoming a certified health and wellness coach. She is also a certified herbalist. Her desire to help others live happier and healthier lives has stemmed from her own path in helping her family obtain better nutrition and vibrant health.
