'Heart healthy' cooking classes offered

[MAY 17, 2003]  Learn how to cook foods that are lower in fat and sodium in the "Heart Healthy Eating" series sponsored by University of Illinois Extension, Logan County. If you have heart disease, including high blood pressure or high cholesterol, you know choosing and preparing foods can be a real challenge.

The program objective is to increase participants' knowledge of risk factors for heart disease, dietary factors and their relationship to heart disease, and to review how individuals can affect their own heart health. Ways to alter foods to reduce fat and salt will be discussed in the classes.

"Those attending will learn how to cook with low-fat products, herbs and spices and using less salt," explains Jananne Finck, nutrition and wellness educator with University of Illinois Extension. Finck is a registered dietitian at the Springfield Extension Center.

DOGS
Big to little, most of these dogs will make wonderful lifelong companions when you take them home and provide solid, steady training, grooming and general care. Get educated about what you choose. If you give them the time and care they need, you will be rewarded with much more than you gave them. They are entertaining, fun, comforting, and will lift you up for days on end.

Be prepared to take the necessary time when you bring home a puppy, kitten, dog, cat or any other pet, and you will be blessed.

[Hi!  I'm Mike!  I'm a 2- to 3-year-old male looking for a family.  My favorite activities include watching my breath and licking your face.]


[This is Jeff.  Jeff is a 1- to 2-year-old mixed breed looking for a good home.]


[Just look at those faces!  These 9-week cuties love to roll and tumble and play.
But don't let their small size fool you.  They are boxer-collie mixes, so they'll get quite a bit bigger!]
