Wellness Webinar – Choose This, NOT That!

Making healthy choices is part of a healthy diet, but with all of the mixed media messages and new information on food and food types, it is difficult to know what to eat to stay healthy. This presentation provides an overview of 5 simple tactics to help individuals choose a healthy diet. In addition, based on the popular book, “Eat this Not That”, participants are provided with a comparison of similar foods that have a surprising disproportional nutritional value so better selections can be considered.

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Location: CL 735
