Preventing Snaccidents series now super(food) charged
Last year, Asante’s Preventing Snaccidents series debunked fad diets to help you avoid the dysfunction and food deprivation that can undermine your efforts to be healthy. We covered how and why snaccidents happen more often to people on diets. Check out that series here if you missed it. To prevent these dietary slip-ups and prepare you for success, we’re introducing a spin this year.
Preventing Snaccidents will focus on locally sourced, organic superfoods that are colorful and rich with nutrients. The 2022 video series will be offered in the same bingeworthy way as 2021. (Pun intended on the videos, not intended with the food.) You’ll be able to access the videos online one at a time or binge the entire four-part series.
Asante Health Promotion’s newest health educator, Tessa Hulse, will lead vlog-style tours at four of her favorite local farms. Then she’ll prepare four superfood recipes. Special guest Shea Quinn, APP’s patient experience coordinator, again will serve as the viewer’s “taste-experience liaison.” The two will discuss and demonstrate farm-to-Tupperware recipes and share fun food prep hacks.
Also new this year: If you make your own dish (which must include locally grown organic super foods from farms in the Rogue Valley) and submit photos, you can qualify for prize drawings. Prizes include Snapware, reusable bags, rapid egg cookers, cookbooks and a possible bonus community-supported agriculture box.
Register for the series by emailing Asante Health Promotion to receive full instructions to get qualified for the prize drawings, plus weekly reminders and video links. Registration is open May 29 to June 12. The challenge takes place June 13 through July 11.
Featured recipes, in random order, are:
• Ruby Raspberry Coleslaw
• Star Spangled Parfaits
• Lemon Parsley Bean Salad
• Salmon Cobb Salad with Spinach and Feta
• Bonus: Iced White Tea with Fresh Raspberries and Nectarines
Recipes and videos will be available on the beWell Healthy Recipes page by mid-June and in Asante News. Each of the four videos runs about 15-minutes.
