I am currently wrapping up my Masters of Science in Nutrition and am a dietetic intern. I am new to Corpus Christi and not only want to make friends to spend time with, but also meet other dietitians, dietetic students, or just people interested in learning more! At our events, we will discuss the latest diet fads and trends and provide scientific research to Allow you to make a better educated decision on if a certain diet is for you. This is not to provide specific nutrition education, but if you are looking for that, perhaps we can get you connected with a dietitian in your area!!! So please come, chat, sip coffee or tea, and mingle.
With heart and kidney disease rates on the rise, more people are becoming aware of the dangers of consuming too much salt. Many individuals lecture on the importance of utilizing fresh herbs and spices instead of salt, but fail to explain exactly how one should do it. I noticed that I myself had a difficult time knowing which herbs to use in certain recipes instead of salt.
In this Meetup, I will discuss how to use and prepare herbs, what their flavor profiles are, and will be demonstrating the use of some in a recipe. I will be making a Chicken Pasta Salad with Fresh Herbs and will be including its nutrition facts, along with a copy of the recipe and copies of other easy to make recipes that incorporate fresh herbs with no salt. So, come on over and be prepared to eat some yummy and flavorful dishes!
