So, I taught a nutrition lesson for an "enrichment" activity for my ward. I couldn't get out of it (hehe), so I went into all gung-ho and planned an all-out lesson on healthy habits.
I planned a lesson to span all kinds of topics: the food pyramid, healthy foods within each food group, healthy portions, physical activity, etc.
I got through about 1/4 of what I'd planned. Looks like I was a little too excited to teach nutrition. Plus, I like sweated gallons while I taught because I was so nervous.
I brought a couple of my "favorite things", or things that I called "dietitian secrets" to inspire the ladies to add more healthy foods into their diet. I brought flaxseed meal, Barilla Plus pasta, King Arthur Flour "white whole wheat" flour as some examples.
The next day, I received 2 emails that that those 2 ladies had each gone out and bought flax. 2 days after, another chick in Relief Society told me she bought flaxseed meal, and had even added it into her cescent rolls she brought to the ward chili cook-off that night. On Sunday, another lady from church came up and told me how great a book was that I'd recommended for people to read.
So, was my nutrition class a success?
Absolutely.. Mission accomplished.
