With the holidays and flu season in full swing, we will be focusing on food and the immune system for the month of December. A quick note: no one food can “boost” your immune system. There is a lot that goes into a healthy immune system, but the health choices we make may help our immune systems to function in a way that is optimal for each of us as individuals. If you see a food or ad that says something is immune-boosting, you may be wasting your money. I will clear this up for you more throughout this coming month.

To go along with this month’s theme of healthy eating for the holidays and healthy plate modeling, see this excellent article below about tips to choose the healthiest options and the right amount of each food. This also provides great tips on how to add flavor to meals!! Don’t forget about our class tonight as well (see details below). Hope to see you there! Bring friends.

I have also attached a quick link on healthy plate modeling. Please watch and be ready to discuss in class next Monday. Here is the question:
**What important food groups were not mentioned in the video?
This is still a video with great tips if you are looking for a picture of healthy eating in a nutshell.
This week, I am sharing one more article regarding salt intake and blood pressure thanks to one of our nutrition class participants. See the link below.
For the month of November, I was planning on having some professionals join our next in-person class. Each participant of the class would make a healthier version of a family-favorite Thanksgiving dish. Each participant would sign up to make a dish of their choosing on their own time. They would then bring in the dish to share with the group and our special judges.
I was hoping to do this on Monday, 11/15 at 5:30 pm. My judges are available, but I want to make sure there are several participants before they make the trip/work adjustments. Let me know if you plan to attend, and please feel free to spread the word/bring friends! We are hoping to eat well and award health-related prizes.
I must know by next Monday, 11/8 by 5 pm. If you are interested, please call or email me to sign up. Those who would just like to come to eat/observe are welcome to do so.
