Health 100: Food and Your Health--Spring 2014, Day 2

Two days, four classes, and 120 Clark College students are OFFICIALLY Outside of the Box! Clark College is by far my favorite place to visit. Today, I was in East Vancouver at the Columbia Tech Center campus. I absolutely love talking to and with the students and showing them how simple it is to make food OUTSIDE of the Box! So much fun, delicious fun! I have the coolest "job" ever!
On the menu: Fruit Seed Wheat Berry Bowl and Quinoa Spinach Salad

Health 100: Food and Your Health--Spring 2014

Today, as a guest lecturer at Clark College, I successfully helped about 60 Health 100 students step outside of the prepared food box. Our focus was on how to prepare and use whole grains. We also made smoothies using whole foods.

The students all agreed that the food was delicious, simple to make, and they could and would make the recipes at home. Music to my ears.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love what I do!

The Obesity Epidemic is REAL!

The evidence of an epidemic is everywhere.

· Two-thirds, more than 190 million Americans are
overweight or obese.

· Obesity-related diseases are a $147 billion dollar
medical burden every year.

· Childhood obesity has tripled in the last thirty years
