This month there was a new class offered at my apartment complex.  It is open to any resident that wishes to attend and it is free.  The class is being presented by the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.

“Eat Smart – Live Strong” is the class.  It will teach us how to look at food differently…including learning how to cook for one or two. 

The first week focused on how our plate should look – You can go to ChooseMyPlate and see how it should look.  Plus if you put in some information – they can help you create some ideas.

We then talked about fruits and vegetables…and we got to sample some new ways to enjoy them:

Baby tomatoes:  Sprinkle with garlic powder and basil

Cukecumber: Sprinkle with dill weed

Apples:  Sprinkle with cinnamon or dip in peanut butter

We then tried four simple exercises –

And, ended the class by filling out a goal sheet as to how many cups of fruits and veggies we would eat each day and how much exercise we would do for a week.

I won a cutting board for being one of the first ten people to sign up!!!
