10/8/22 - Healthy Holiday Eating

11/12/22 - Beloved Carbs

How should we think about, and manage, those carbohydrates we all love? "Carbs" is a nutrient category that covers a lot of ground: starchy foods, fruits, vegetables, desserts, sweet coffee beverages, grains, to name several. We know that excess carbs can contribute to common and serious health problems, yet some carb-rich foods are fantastic for health! We will discuss all of this, and ways to set limits when your daily carb intake is veering out of control.

Presented by Judy Palken, a registered dietitian, who provides the information and guidance to help you make effective and healthful dietary changes.
