Sacred Heart to Host Free Healthy Heart Nutrition Class in February
Posted: 1/30/2017

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. – Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast is holding a free, community cooking class in February. “Healthy Heart, Healthy YOU” is wellness education designed to connect participants with ways of eating and living for a healthy heart.

Join Registered Dietitian Julee Christie on Monday, Feb. 13 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. to learn about research-based ways to promote heart health through nutrition. Topics will include the risk factors for heart disease, current guidelines on sodium, cholesterol, and fat intake, and common myths and fad diets. Participants will learn how to adopt a heart-healthy lifestyle by incorporating simple techniques into their everyday meal planning and cooking routines. The nutrition information discussed is applicable to everyone of all ages; from those who have been diagnosed with heart disease (high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, high cholesterol) to those who are interested in reducing their risk for heart disease. There will be recipes, food samples that illustrate the topics discussed, and recommendations for reputable online and app-based nutrition resources. Participants are invited to bring along their lunch to enjoy with the samples provided.

Class size is limited to 30 participants. Please call 850-416-1620 to register today. The class will take place in the Suite 3 Conference Room at the hospital, which is located at 7800 U.S. Hwy 98 West in Miramar Beach.
