Mary Opfer, Registered Dietician specializing in Integrative and Culinary Nutrition, was our speaker today. She gave us some good hints about eating for healthy living, such as: write down what you eat, portion control, carbs are necessary - eat them in moderation, not every diet plan works for everyone, breakfast is important as is eating three meals a day and dessert is a privilege. She answered our questions and there was a good discussion about food and dieting. Mary has an excellent website,
www.maryopfernutrition.com, with a section containing some interesting recipes, a blog, etc. Take a look! Thank you, Mary for your presentation.
