Workshop Descriptions

Eating Fast Without Fast Food (note new location)
Thursday, July 12
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
City of Lakes, 309 2nd Avenue South (Room 101)

Your busy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your health to a diet of fast food.  You can enjoy delicious, healthy foods with a little planning and better menu selections at restaurants. Your energy, focus, moods, metabolism and health depend on the nutrition choices you make every day. Learn quick and easy breakfast options to get you going. Pack a healthy lunch or pick the best options when eating out. Then end your day with simple dinners that are sure to satisfy.

Waking up achy all over? Are muscle spasms, leg cramps or back pain causing you to rely on your favorite over-the-counter pain killer?  There’s a better answer, and it’s called nutrition. Learn which foods cause aches and pains and which foods reduce inflammation. Make simple nutrition changes to manage your pain.
