EDISON—A new program on healthy eating is being offered by Middlesex County College this spring. This non-credit series of classes meets at Eno Terra Restaurant in Kingston in March and April.
“This is a wonderful program for those who want to learn how to eat better, lose weight, or increase energy while being more socially conscious,” said Lynn Lederer, director of the college’s Professional and Community Programs. “As an added bonus, attendees will have the opportunity of dining at one of Middlesex County’s premier restaurants. You will enjoy a fine meal while learning about nutrition and environmentally sound eating patterns.”
The five classes are:
• “Eating for Type 2 Diabetes” on Tuesday, March 16 will teach you how to eat well while managing carbohydrates, maximizing weight control and preventing disease progression.
• “Food as Medicine” on Tuesday, March 23 will discuss how to prepare food that can energize you and help prevent – or even reverse – disease.
• “Eating Locally: The Case for Sustainable Agriculture” on Tuesday, March 30 talks about eating with the environment in mind.
• “Healthy Eating for Weight Loss” on Tuesday, April 6 will give you tools to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
• “Vegetarian Nutrition” on Tuesday, April 13 will help you enjoy a vegetarian diet while obtaining all the nutrients you need.
Each class is $50, which includes the cost of the meal (gratuity and specialty beverages extra). Recipes for each meal will be distributed by Eno Terra’s executive chef, Christopher Albrecht.
