WBN July Luncheon Recap

CIMG2896 The Women’s Business Network had a wonderful luncheon and speaker on June 20th at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo.  Mike Austin, the Dietary CIMG2900Manager at UVRMC, spoke about healthy eating habits and prepared a delicious low calorie lunch.  His presentation was entertaining as well as informative.  Some of his ideas for healthy eating included:

Be careful of the amounts you eat as well as what you eat
Cook ahead and freeze so you aren’t tempted to eat out as much
Keep healthy snacks on hand so you don’t always reach for the easy fattening ones
Put together a menu before you go to the grocery store so you know what to buy and don’t purchase things that are high calorie and look good at the store
If you don’t have a plan you probably will make bad food choices
Myreceipies.com has good gluten free recipes
Plan for a healthy snack throughout the day and then you won’t overeat at dinner
Healthy snacks will prevent you from over eating
Eating breakfast helps get your metabolism going

Women shared ideas for healthy snacks at their tables and had a great time getting to know each other better.  Mike prepared several low calorie items for the women to taste.  The recipes can be found at the following link, Recipies from Mike Austin

Special thanks to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and the Barbara Barrington Jones Foundation for sponsoring the luncheon.

There will be no luncheon in July because of conflicts with vacations and holidays.  The next luncheon will be on August 15th at the Scera.  Be sure to mark the date on your calendar and watch for additional details to follow.
