Eating Healthy through the Holidays
Is it even possible to eat healthy during the holidays? Yes! You are invited to “Healthy Sweets and Treats” to learn how to enjoy the holidays without some of the traditional holiday indulgences. The program will take place on Wednesday, December 13th at 12 noon at The Dale Association, 33 Ontario Street, Lockport. Marla Guarino, RDN, CDN, SNAP-Ed Nutritionist from Cornell Cooperative Extension will present the program and take a look at holiday recipes and ways to use delicious alternatives in each food group. There will be ideas for healthy sweets followed by sweet treat samples. The cost is free and the public is invited. Also, On Monday, December 18th at 10:30am, Jennifer Johnson, Health Promotion Coordinator from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York will present “Nutrition Jeopardy”. It is a fun competition based on everyone’s favorite game show that will put your knowledge to the test. This fun activity is also free and will take place at The Dale Association, 33 Ontario Street, Lockport. I hope these workshops will help you stay healthy and mindful as you celebrate the holidays with friends and family. You can eat well and be well this holiday season!
