September & October are Gone: What Now?Posted on November 9th, 2017
As we are now into our Eat Right Feel Great series of Diabetes, we have said goodbye to our series of Gluten Free. September and October brought lots of community involvement for your Reasor’s Registered Dietitians… here is a little recap.
Media Stars What?
We saw an increase in televised presence. Hayden brought us information on prebiotics and probiotics and educated on the popular gut microbiome. Sydney busted the myth that healthy shopping was only limited to the outside of the store. We will continue to debunk nutrition and shopping myths through the end of the year. Stay tuned for Heather’s segment next week on Good Day Tulsa!
Sarah has been involved with the Cooking Corner on News on 6 and brings recipes once a month to Tulsa audiences. You can find those segments and many more here. The Easy Granola is indeed that and quite tasty!
Heather wrapped up Halloween with more about our teal pumpkins. We are passionate about raising awareness about food allergies and we were proud to offer teal pumpkins at all 18 of our locations!
We Have Heart
Each year, Heather and Sarah team up with the American Heart Association to teach local high school students about healthy and low sodium cooking. This year was no different. Students got to help make Cauliflower Walnut Tacos, sodium free taco seasoning and chocolate avocado smoothies.
Sydney and Hayden also braved the near freezing temperatures to volunteer in the time honored tradition of handing out candy bars at the finish line of the Tulsa Run.
Can you Dig It?
Heather and Hayden brought Dig with a Dietitian to the Broken Arrow Neighbors Community Garden. These events have been extremely popular. Children get to plant and have a nutrition/science lesson as well.
Shipt to You
Finally, we have kicked off our giveaways of Shipt memberships. This unique service allows you to shops from the comfort of your home and then someone else picks up your groceries and brings them to you! We can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t benefit from this. We have more opportunities to win a free annual membership. Hope on over to Hayden’s blog post here to enter!
As the holiday season has officially kicked off, we have many exciting events and giveaways coming so keep up with us and let us know if we can help you in anyway!
