Flo Goodman will be returning to the Library on Wednesday, November 14th for a healthy holiday cooking program that everyone, even people with dietary restrictions, can enjoy. No need to worry about eating "health food," while everyone else is having holiday fare! Goodman has found a way for everyone at the table to enjoy the same dishes.
“My menu features traditional holiday favorites,” Goodman says. “However, my way of modifying ingredients, proportions, and methods of cooking makes these dishes low in fat, sugar and calories." The presentation at the Library will cover eggnog, turkey, green beans almondine, sweet potato medallions, cranberry relish, apple crisp, and green tea.
The program, followed by a Q & A session, will include helpful hints, tricks and shortcuts to make a fabulous, stress-free and healthy holiday feast for everyone, whatever medical condition they might have, or health choices they decide to make.
Eggnog and apple crisp will be served. Please sign up for this program at the Library’s Main Desk so enough refreshments can be prepared for all!
