FISH Sponsors Nutritious Eating Workshop

F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP, in collaboration with the Sanibel Community House and Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, will be sponsoring the community presentation ‘Simple Food Prep and Healthy Steps to Nutritious Eating’ from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 16 at the Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way.

This the first presentation in FISH of SANCAP’s Health and Wellness Series. Sanibel Congregational UCC Parish Nurse Linda Convertine, R.N., will dispel myths about healthy eating while participants observe Chef Jarred prepare a nutritious three-course meal using healthy ingredients, seasonings, and oils.

During this interactive session, participants will learn how to prepare simple and nutritious meals, as well as taste one. The sample menu may include:

  • Sweet Corn Chowder with Basil infused Olive Oil
  • Entrée Salad of Chargrilled Vegetables, Arugula, and Olive Oil poached Salmon
  • Coconut Panna Cotta with Pineapple Brown Sugar and Rum Compote

“This is an opportunity to learn how to grow, use and eat healthy food alternatives,” said Chef Jarred. “I will talk about the importance of fresh vegetables and protein while teaching what to look for when selecting them.”

“It is always better to have factual information rather than trendy information in reference to what is better for our bodies and diet,” said Convertine. “It will be great to share my personal experiences with eating healthy as well as information from documented research and studies.”

For additional information and to RSVP, contact Kathy Y. Monroe or Anthony Morales at FISH by phone: 239-472-4775.
