What we eat and how active we are have a big influence on our health, especially as we grow older. This program will discuss healthy diet patterns, including the Mediterranean Diet, antioxidants and “Super Foods”; what are they, what they do and how to get them from your food? We will also discuss the need for supplements, and the importance of hydration. Last, but not least, we will look at the types and amount of physical activity recommended to keep your heart and brain healthy, and you feeling young.
The program will be presented by Diane Whitten, MS, Nutrition Educator for Cornell Cooperative Extension Saratoga County. Diane has worked for CCE for over 20 years teaching nutrition and cooking programs for community groups. She is a statewide expert on food preservation education.
