So, how many chicken wings, pizza slices, and other nutritionally un-sound things did you consume on Superbowl Sunday? And how long did you pay for it afterwards? Let’s face it, none of us can eat the same way we did when we were younger. As we get older, our gastro-intestinal systems become more fragile, and our dietary needs realistically change.
On Wednesday, February 11th, from 12:30-1:20 PM, the Westfield Area Y will host a free lecture by registered dietitian Lindsey Roth, of ShopRite of Garwood. The lecture will take place at the Main Y Facility at 220 Clark Street. Roth will cover the topic “Healthy Eating/Healthy Aging,” focusing on special nutrient needs for older adults, and how to adapt nutritional goals to support physical and mental health as we age.
Best of all, the discussion is absolutely free, and available to everyone. You can register in person at the Welcome Center of the Main Y Facility, or online if you are a Westfield Area Y member. Contact Jean White with any questions at 908-233-2700 x246, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants are asked to bring a bag lunch. Maybe you want to pck something OTHER than buffalo wings and Superbowl leftovers. Just sayin.’
