    It’s a new year and after all the holiday feasting, we need to get back to our healthy diet. Join us and learn about the impact that sodium has on your health. The average American takes in more than 3,400 milligrams of sodium each day. That’s 1500 milligrams more than the American Heart Association recommends for ideal cardiovascular health! Studies link excess sodium intake to the development of elevated blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart attacks, stroke, and kidney disease. Let’s break up with salt and learn how to find hidden sodium in foods, low sodium alternatives, and learn how to prepare a tasty and flavorful low sodium meal. After our lesson we will be Cooking with Kayla. Our own resident San Antonio Nutritionist, Kayla Keel will demonstrate how to prepare a healthy and flavorful, low sodium meal.

    Although sugars are not harmful in small amounts to the body, our bodies do not need sugars to function properly. Added sugars contribute additional calories and zero nutrients to food. Reducing the amount of added sugars we eat cuts calories and can help you improve your heart health and control your weight. Join us for another Cooking with Kayla and learn how you can cut down on sugar, rethink you drink, and make tasty and easy sugar swaps in your diet.
