GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Eating healthy can sometimes seem like a daunting task. Add in a tight budget and things can feel even more difficult.

Now with the Cooking Matters program Walmart and the YMCA are determined to show west Michigan that it's not so hard. Classes are held at schools, churches, community centers and more, wherever the need is greatest. Participants are taught how to choose healthy ingredients and how to cook them while sticking to a budget.

Dave from Walmart and Carla from the YMCA stopped by to talk about the program and to show one of the recipes off for a white bean and chicken dish. Click here for the recipe.
