The Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St., continues a daily series of “healthy, wealthy and wise” events through January. These free or very low-cost events offer a wealth of opportunities to fulfill new year’s resolutions.

From 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, the Craft Circle will meet in the Conference Room. Whether you’ve never picked up a pair of needles or you’ve been at it for years, you’re invited. The Craft Circle works on projects, troubleshoots problems and discusses favorite crafts.  It’s free and is open to drop-in participants.

The Davis Food Writers Circle meets at 6 p.m. Monday after a long hiatus. Amateurs and professionals alike are welcome to meet, discuss, read and support one another in delicious writing. Free; drop in.

The Live Foods Group meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Conference Room. If you’ve been perfecting your kombucha recipe, wondering about making your own sauerkraut or kefir or longing for homemade miso, this is the group for you. Free; drop in.

Also at 6 p.m. Tuesday, there is The Skinny on Fats in the Teaching Kitchen at 537 G St. Cooking with fats is an important way to add flavor, nutrition and texture to your meals. Learn how to care for your fats and oils, which fats are best for various types of cooking, and how much fat you really need in your diet. The cost is $7.

Pomegranates are healthy (rich in antioxidants), wealthy (free if you know where to look) and very wise (if you’re a smart cook). Learn more in the Intro to Pomegranates class at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Pomegranate adds flair and flavor to wintry dishes — in cocktails, thrown on top of grains, with toasted nuts for a perfect side dish, or dotted onto decadent whipped chevre mousse, nestled between thin sheets of baklava. The cost is $7.

At 6 p.m. Thursday, there is a class on Intro To Whole Grain Baking in the Teaching Kitchen. Make healthier, more satisfying cookies, breads and muffins with whole grains and flours. Participants will learn about the different flours found in the Co-op’s bulk section, soaking grains for bread and how to adjust the recipe to incorporate more nutrient rich ingredients. The cost is $7.

Fans will be happy to hear that Friday marks the return of the popular 12 for $40 menu and shopping list combo, which provides meals for two people for six nights for $40 or less. The handout will be available free in the store throughout the day.

Co-op members are invited to attend Apps with the Board from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, in the Teaching Kitchen. Board service is a great way to be involved with the Co-op. Participants will get all the information they need to decide if it’s a good fit for them, along with refreshments.

The event is free; reserve a space by email to jcross@davisfood.coop or on the Events Calendar page at www.davisfood.coop.

Cooking classes have limited seating. To reserve a seat and make payment, and to view the full schedule, visit www.davisfood.coop.
