Dining Out without Filling Out Virtual Class Offered

Putnam County Community Center is offering a virtual class on Dining Out without Filling Out from Illinois Extension Nutrition & Wellness Educator, Susan Glassman.  These days, portions at restaurants are quite a bit larger than they were several years ago. One entrée can equal 3 or 4 servings! Studies show that people tend to eat more when they’re served more food.  Can you order-in or dine-out and practice a healthy lifestyle?  We will discuss the clues to healthy choices to look for on a menu, how to spot the extra calories, and how to estimate portion sizes with our “handy” guide.  Enjoy ordering-out or dining-out for a delicious, nutritious meal without any dishes to wash.  

Dining Out without Filling Out will be offered on Friday, November 6, 10:30 – 11:15 AM.
