    Ask A Connecticut Expert: Top Workout Recipes


    When asked what foods she recommends to prepare for, fuel and recover from a good workout day, Chef Kashia Cave of My City Kitchen in Meriden was quick to answer: a smoothie, some home-made trail mix and a well-rounded supper of Cornish hen, mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. Chef Kashia is more than just a chef; she has made it her life’s mission to teach children not only how to eat healthy, but also how to chose and prepare foods that are good for them and their families. In addition to running her business and teaching cooking classes for children, Chef Kashia is, among many other things, the sponsor and organizer of the Plant a Seed Culinary Extravaganza Fundraiser to promote children’s health and wellness. Noted Chef Tim Cipriano, a judge from Food Network’s “Chopped,” who was named by the White House as a “Champion of Change” for his work as director of food services for the Guildford Public Schools, was the keynote speaker at Chef Kashia’s 2nd Annual extravaganza, held April 6.
