Free Webinar Offers Tips for Better Health

— Written By

Did you resolve to achieve better health in 2017? Cooperative Extension offers a variety of tools, information, and classes that can help you to make better nutrition decision.

The new 2016 USDA Nutrition guidelines encourage people to incorporate a Mediterranean style diet as part of a healthy lifestyle. This diet does mean going out and buying all imported food from that region, but  guides you to eat less saturated fats,  more fruits and vegetables, less breads, and more fish, beans, and nuts. A free webinar on Friday, January 27, 2017 explains how you can change the types of foods you eat to achieve a better diet. The webinar will be taped and is available to watch for free after the live airing.

Register and tune in to the webinar by following this link:

In this link, you will also find information about previous webinars covering the Mediterranean diet and to our website Med Instead of Meds, which provides recipes for healthier eating.
