Healthy Ticker, Healthy Thinker

Aug 08, 2017

A healthy heart = a healthy brain. It’s never too late to make brain-healthy changes!

The heart and brain depend on healthy blood vessels to deliver oxygen and nutrients to vital organs. Behaviors, such as eating vitamin rich fruits and vegetables, along with a daily walk can help keep blood vessels open and the heart strong.

Learn more about how to incorporate fresh produce from a local Farmers Market or garden into a daily menu. Join August’s Fresh Conversations program to be held on Aug. 16, at the Fellowship Cup in Mt. Pleasant at 203 N. Jefferson St. at 11 a.m.

Since trying new foods is a highlight of every Fresh Conversation’s program, participants will sample a recipe using zucchini noodles that only takes minutes to prepare and tastes like a delicious low carb pasta dish.

New members are welcome and new sites are added periodically. Fresh Conversations is a free program offered by Milestones Area Agency on Aging at their nutrition centers and is designed to promote sharing and peer support.

The monthly nutrition discussions, in-home exercise and food samplings can help seniors stay independent and healthy.
