SALT, SUGAR, FAT AND BOOZE – THEY’RE OH SO GOOD BUT NOT REALLY… LEARN WHY ON MAY 13TH

Here’s a confession – way too much salt, a bit too much sugar, too much fat makes my dietary world go round and booze – well, that’s the only one I’m good at managing to keep at a very modest dietary level.

I’m looking forward to Alex Burghardt’s talk next Wednesday afternoon on how to deal with these common nutritional traps while still managing to enjoy what I eat and drink. Alex is a Registered Dietician with the Peterborough Family Health Team. She loves to talk about avoiding common nutritional traps in our daily lives.

Of course, we can’t meet in person, so we’re going with a Zoom group meeting. Peter will send out the meeting ID number and password on Monday, May 11th. We invite you to arrive early – about 1:15 to hang out for a bit, then at 1:30, we’ll open our meeting up to Alex for some excellent learning and discussion. We should finish up by 2:30 pm.

Will you please join us next Wednesday, May 13th?

At our June 3rd meeting, we’ll be learning about cannabis use in individuals with cardiovascular disease. Cannabis is a popular topic among our members, so we’re delighted to be able to offer you our very first cannabis themed topic. More details on the content as we get closer to the June meeting date.
