Mary Liz Wright, U of I Extension, to Present Nutrition Programs
The first of two programs presented by Mary Liz Wright, University of Illinois Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator, will be "Gluten Free Fads and Facts." Join us in the Dale McConchie Meeting Room on Thursday, September 11th at 6:30 PM to hear how the gluten-free diet is marketed as a healthier way of eating or as a weight-loss tool. Some of the population has a physical need to avoid food products containing wheat, barley and rye grains. This program is designed to promote understanding of gluten intolerance and help you determine how it fits into your diet.
The second program, "Organic, Local, Natural: What It Is, What It Isn't" will also be held in the Dale McConchie Meeting Room on Thursday, September 25th, at 6:30 PM.
Please register for these free programs by calling the library.
