F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva, in collaboration with The Community House and Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, will sponsor a presentation, “Simple Food Prep and Healthy Steps to Nutritious Eating,” on July 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Community House on Sanibel.

It the first presentation in F.I.S.H.’s Health and Wellness Series.

“This is a cannot-miss offering sponsored by F.I.S.H., SCA and Sanibel Congregational UCC and open to the first 25 respondents,” F.I.S.H. Program Director Kathy Y. Monroe said. “Please join us for this complimentary opportunity to learn, and taste, a nutritious and healthy meal.”

SCUCC Parish Nurse Linda Convertine will dispel myths about healthy eating, while participants observe TCH Resident Chef Jarred prepare a nutritious three-course meal using healthy ingredients, seasonings and oils. During the interactive session, participants will not only learn how to prepare simple and nutritious meals but will also get to taste one.

The sample menu may include:

Jarred Harris

– Sweet corn chowder with basil-infused olive oil

– Entre salad of chargrilled vegetables, arugula, and olive oil poached salmon

– Coconut panna cotta with pineapple brown sugar and rum compote

“This is an opportunity to learn how to grow, use and eat healthy food alternatives,” Jarred said. “I will talk about the importance of fresh vegetables and protein while teaching what to look for when selecting them.”

“It is always better to have factual information rather than trendy information in reference to what is better for our bodies and diet,” Convertine added. “It will be great to share my personal experiences with eating healthy as well as information from documented research and studies.”
