Environmental Change in Action

Moving from unhealthy food options at the church to making the healthy choice the easy choice

Here are some pictures of the food served yesterday during the Truth For Living course “Living Faith The Healthy Way”.

Topics covered: How to get 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables (displayed in 1 meal), serving sizes (using actual visuals like: baseball = 1c serving of romaine or spinach, computer mouse = 1/4c of whole grains like Quinoa, egg = serving of mixed nuts, deck of cards = 1serving of meat protein, 4 dice = 1oz serving of dairy, 6oz = 1serving of fruit in juice.

The pasta sauce was made of 4 ingredients: diced tomatoes, fat free low sodium chicken broth, cloves of garlic, and onions.

The class participants were amazed at the flavor and the reduced amount of sugar and sodium that can be achieved by making your own sauce versus purchasing a jar of sauce.

They were also impressed with how easy it is to actually get your 5-9 daily servings of fruit and vegetables.
