Healthy Eating on the Run
Wednesday, September 14th @ 11:00 AM

Our culture is on the move! And, as a result, the use of convenience foods is on the rise. In fact, the average American eats out 6 meals a week. This may include a morning run through the drive-thru, take-out after a game, or pizza delivery. There is no shortage of opportunities to find convenient and tasty foods at every turn. However, when we consider that 6 in 10 Americans have a chronic health condition and 4 in 10 have 2 or more, we must question if this abundance is good for us. In this class, you will become a more selective consumer when it comes to eating on the run. You will learn which foods are a go and which should be a no! You will also gain strategies that make eating healthy on the run easier and more sustainable for you.
