Eating a healthy diet takes more strategic planning than a junk-food lifestyle. I think most of us want to eat well — we just don’t have time (or so we tell ourselves). Our intentions are good, but when it comes to food preparation, oftentimes we defer to the fast and easy way out. Reminds me of one of my dad’s favorite blurts: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I’d say the road to illness and weight gain is paved with the same. We’re more likely to eat well if we can eliminate some of the hassle.

In this kitchen-turned-classroom, the teacher’s head is always on a swivel. “You don’t need smoked paprika, you need regular,” advanced food preparation instructor Andrew Feldman said calmly, chiming in just as a Glendale Community College student approached him with the wrong spice jar. “Use a mix of red and green [peppers],” Feldman said to another student. With knives hitting cutting boards and pans clanking on stoves, students in white chef’s jackets moved methodically through the kitchen, preparing this week’s Argentine menu, which features empanadas de picadillo, grilled flank steak marinated in chimichurri sauce and crepes with dulce de leche.
