One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, White Fish Cooking Class

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, White Fish Dietitian Debra Sanders of Vibrant Health partnered with Family Fresh Market to present a healthy cooking class “1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, White Fish” to teach participants how to make heart-healthy fish tacos with cod and salmon with veggies. Debra introduces one of the menu items for tonight’s cooking class (asparagus) in the Family Fresh kitchen. To keep asparagus fresh, place it in an asparagus jar (stalk side up) filled 1/2 with water and store in the fridge. To garnish the cod fish tacos, a colorful coleslaw was made, which included red cabbage, carrots, peaches, green onions, and lime juice. Debra showing off one of the cute “sample-sized” tortillas! Debra pan-frying the cod for the fish tacos. It was cooked on medium-high in a greased pan. Cook covered for 3 minutes, flip, uncovered for 1 minute, and then covered for 2 minutes. The beautifully done salmon with asparagus and lemon! The finished products! Thank you to everyone who came out! We hope to see you in November at our next cooking class, Mouthwatering Meatless Meals.  ...

Weekend Highlights- September 16 & 17

On Saturday, September 16th, Spring Valley Dam Days hosted their 30th annual 5K & 10K Family Fun Run, which Vibrant Health sponsored. Runners were #poweredbyhealthandwellness even through the rain! Great job to everyone who came out to support the Spring Valley Lions Club! Thank you to Vibrant Health employees Denise Burkett, Dennis Paul, and Sierra Hawkins who participated. The same morning, even 1,111 miles away in San Antonio, Texas, the Tashjian family was #poweredbyhealthandwellness. Dr. Tashjian, his wife Barb, and his son Eddie ran a 5K at the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) conference. We had a busy Sunday #supportingourcommunity! We started in Spring Valley with the Spring Valley Dam Days parade. Samantha, Julie, Sierra, Brandi, and Chad handed out lip balm/sunscreen sticks. Julie did double duty- she walked in the parade AND worked in the Spring Valley Lions Club burger booth. Talk about being #poweredbyhealthandwellness! After that, we headed over to River Falls for our first Walk With A Doc event. Nora Bennett C-NP spoke about the importance of eating fresh food, particularly produce. She even brought banana peppers and eggplants (that she grew herself) for everyone to bring home! Thanks to everyone who came out to Hoffman Park. See you next week at 5:15 p.m. for our next WWAD event! We love the communities we are part of!...
