Prevention Partners’ Tasty Lunch Club

tasty lunch 1

 

Welcome to the Tasty Lunch Club!  Here at Prevention Partners several staff get together each Monday to enjoy a delicious healthy lunch made by one of the Tasty Lunch Club members.  Today’s menu, Farmers’ Market Delight, brought to us by Melva Fager Okun includes the items gathered from the Carrboro, NC farmers market.

Lucious meaty tomatoes: red, orange and yellow

Creamy cheeses: Swiss and Monetary

Rich, buttery avocado slices

Bread & butter pickles:  Yum

Fresh field greens

Bread: local artisan made, whole grain and dark rye (the dark rye was heaven!)

This is a great way to promote nutritional wellness at work and share healthy recipes.  There are several beneficial side effects such as friendship and laughter as we share our tales from the weekend.

Desserts:  Grapes, tempting butter cookies covered with evil dark chocolate and nuts

 

I cannot wait until next week!


Weekly Wellness Tally

Exercise:

–          0 bike rides – crazy rainy week

–          0 – 1 hour walks

–          0 – ½ hour leisurely swims

–          1 – ½ hour walks at work

–          0 – walks to run errands at plaza across the street

–          0 – ½ hour runs (indoors)

–          0 – ½ hour runs (outdoors)

Veggie Intake:

–          French green beans making their way into my lunches

See you next week,
