Fruits, Fats and Lots of Snacks!
Whew! Busy day with lots of excitement. Sarah led a lively discussion about the benefits of including a lot of colorful fruits in your diet, especially in the summer when so many local fruits are available. It seems that everyone enjoys fruit in many ways and has a favorite. After the Powerpoint discussion chef showed how to use a melon baller to make fancy little melon balls for fruit salads or fruit kebabs, which many of the campers did later. The Fats discussion by Cody was very technical about the benefits of healthy fats like those that contain Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, and it all made more sense with the olive oil tasting that followed. EVOO was a clear favorite. Fruits and Fats make some mighty tasty combinations--and we will have the pies at the reception on Friday since they were too hot to slice. Enjoy blueberry season this summer!
