The “Adventures in Better Health” Vegetarian Cooking Seminar focused on the changes busy people have to make in their daily lives and the benefits they can expect from a healthful lifestyle. There was excitement right from the starting night, “Great Green Night” all the way through the closing night, Celebrating Nationality Night, where the focus was on variety and diversity.
The Adventures in Better Health Cookbook featured vegetarian (eggs, cheese, dairy) and vegan (total plant based) recipes, many low-fat and low cholesterol, and the class lectures provided information enabling participants to see that “your personal fitness can be a source of joy and is affected by the choices you make daily.”
Dr. Richard Feeck, retired Ophthalmologist, brought health lectures five nights, and Dr. Paul Corbier, Internist with Lakeland’s Watson Clinic, spoke both Thursday evenings. Tuesday, March 25, the Ridge Federation of the Seventh-day Adventists Community Services brought equipment to do health testing including: Blood Pressure, Glaucoma, Cholesterol, Blood Sugar and Body Fitness Assessment tests.
During the six enjoyable, informative and practical sessions, class participants discovered the basic principals of natural delicious eating. Each evening during food sampling time, seminar members tasted vegetarian cooking at it's best. Highlights included “Bread Night”, Pasta Night, Soup and Salad Night, along with a new feature, All Vegan Night where the emphasis was on total Plant Based Diets.
