Superfoods to the Rescue

 

Today, many people are looking to find healthier ways to live.  They are being more intentional about getting the recommended 150 minutes of physical activity a week and choosing healthier foods.

Have you heard the term “superfoods” lately? Depending upon where you live, this may be a term you have not yet heard much about. Perhaps you have heard the term, but are not quite sure what it means?  The term superfood is basically a marketing term used to describe foods with supposed health benefits.  Although marketers like to use this buzz-word, there is a lot to be said for these colorful and healthful foods.

Join University of Illinois Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator, Diane Reinhold, for this 90 minute workshop – Superfoods to the Rescue. During this workshop learn examples of superfoods, what’s so super about them, and if you should include them in your daily diet.  

Superfoods to the Rescue will be held Wednesday, June 8th from 10:00-11:30 AM at the Stephenson County Farm Bureau, 210 W. Spring Street, Freeport.  To register, call the U of I Extension at (815) 235-4125 or register online at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/jsw/ .
