I’m so excited to tell you all about the upcoming Nutrition Fair at the South Jordan Fitness Center this September 30th! For those of you who have not attended one of our previous events and are not familiar with the Nutrition Fair, let me tell you a little bit more about it and how it began.

Sherrie (the Center Director and one of my best friends) and I wanted to get the word out that “healthy food” is not only good for your body, but that it tastes good too. We decided that we needed to get good food into people’s hands so they could taste it for themselves -to see (and taste) just how good healthy eating can be! The quarterly South Jordan Fitness Center’s Nutrition Fair was born.

Sherrie and I went shopping for all the ingredients we would need and then spent hours preparing all the food for  sampling  the next day. I think that first go around we were both a little nervous as to how it would be received. We didn’t need to worry. It was an instant hit! Before we knew it, people were requesting copies of our recipes so that they could make these healthy options at home for their families. We were so excited -it was happening right in front of our eyes, our  goal was being met!

As one Nutrition Fair followed another, our stack of recipes grew and grew. We even had some of our patrons sharing healthy recipes with us that they and their families loved. Soon our stack of recipes became an entire cookbook -full of healthy  ideas  for everything from salads to dinners to desserts! Each new edition has all of our recipes from past Nutrition Fairs (we think of them as “old favorites”) as well as  the  newest  recipes from our current Nutrition Fair included.

At this Nutrition Fair we will be spotlighting  some of our favorite soup and stew recipes. There will be  samples of each new recipe featured in the cookbook for you to taste. Come  join us and pick out one or two favorites, or maybe you’ll love them all! We’d love for you to share them with  your friends and family.

Okay, let’s get to the details. The Nutrition Fair will be held on September 30th from 10 am to noon at the South Jordan Fitness Center located at 10866 S. Redwood Road. We will have the cookbooks I mentioned  available for purchase for $6 each. (Hint: They make great neighbor gifts for the upcoming Christmas season, but make sure you get one for yourself!) I’ll be there to help out and answer any questions you may have about nutrition and healthy eating so come on down, I’d love to meet you! See you there!
