What if taking better care of yourself could be fun and easy?
What if healthy food could be delicious?
What if you could change your bad habits before you had an upsetting health scare?
February is Heart Health month and Spooner Memorial Library is partnering with Spooner Health to bring our patrons a program we hope will make people motivated to change a little in order to live and feel better.
While not everything is preventable, there are many positive things we can do to take charge of our health. Registered Dietitian Denise Roberts will teach us a few of them. Roberts has a Master’s of Science Degree in Clinical Nutrition and has been a registered dietitian for twenty-six years – she has many heart health tricks up her sleeve, tricks that may be intuitive to a dietitian, but not so obvious to the rest of us. She will talk about things like:
· Substituting ingredients to make the food you eat healthier, but not less flavorful
· How to best prepare food (such as boiling instead of frying)
· Reading food labels and learning what to look for
· Avoiding going to the store when hungry (bringing a list and sticking to it)
