Healthy Heart And Soul

This Monday evening at St. James, we welcomed Jamie Thomas, a registered dietitian with SCDHEC and Harvest Hope Food Bank, to discus simple ways to improve our health through diet and lifestyle. This interactive nutrition class taught us about food groups, portion sizes, fiber, fat/sugar content in foods, and much more. Each participant went home with a Healthy Heart and Soul Cookbook, a pedometer, and nutritional information. As Christians, we know that God wants us to be faithful caretakers not only of this earth which He has created and our neighbors all around us, but also of the bodies He has given us. May God continue to guide us to make more healthy choices in our lives.
