Nutrition Week is coming to the dining commons during the first week in March. I am of course very excited for all the fun activities that are planned. And today, I want to share some of those activities.
Monday-DLG will be hosting Green Monday
Tuesday- there will be an exotic fruit tasting. Some of the fruits that will be featured include the baby kiwi, Cape gooseberry, dragon fruit, and kumquats. The baby kiwi is my favorite- you eat them with the skin on!
Wednesday- keep your eye out for samples of Bob’s Red Mill whole grain products some options may include granola, quick oats, hot cereal, and muesli.
Thursday- you will be able to make your own trail mix. Trail mix options include sliced almonds, pepitas, walnuts, dried blueberries, and dried cranberries.
During this time, you can also ask me any Nutrition related questions.
Friday- Ask Dietitian Carrie Flack any nutrition related question and meet Feras our Housing's exercise expert.
In addition, to these fun events, there are various vendors coming to the dining commons to table and provide fun samples. Some vendors include our local produce vendor Harvest Santa Barbara, The Berry Man, Natural Skippy Peanut Butter, IV Co-Op and many more.
I hope you enjoy the event and all the wonderful healthy samples provided. Please feel free to provide me with any feedback about the events.
