It is the only partnership member of the family of Rummy games to achieve the status of a classic.

Mindful Eating with Liz Barbour
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

When we eat mindlessly we often miss the triggers and signs that our bodies send us to let us know we are not hungry!

  • Have you ever eaten an entire bowl of popcorn when you weren’t hungry? 
  • Do you know what 1 cup of cereal really looks like?

Picture

Join chef Liz Barbour as she helps to identify the cycle of mindless eating and offers some simple ways to help you be a more “mindful” eater so you can change your eating habits with success. Liz’s slide presentation will be followed by a cooking demonstration of 2 healthy recipes with samples for all.

This event is paid for by the Friends of the Library!

Picture

Liz is an entertaining communicator whose warm, relaxed approach tofood and cooking resonates with her students. With stories and 
instruction Liz shares her experiences as a working chef to demystify 
the cooking process for her students. 
She is a firm believer that any 
home cook can prepare fresh, flavorful meals with confidence
if taught just a few basic but important skills.
