Program on living long and well

If there was a “magic pill” to increase your chances of staying fit and healthy as the years fly by, would you take it?

There is no “magic pill,” but food and lifestyle choices have a great effect on health and aging. Learn how daily habits and food choices affect important health indicators such as blood pressure, body weight, and glucose and cholesterol levels.

Marilyn Csernus, University of Illinois Extension nutrition and wellness educator and registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, will present “Let’s Live Long and Live Well” at 3 p.m. Jan. 21, at the DeKalb County Extension office, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore. Healthy recipes will be provided along with a cooking demonstration and recipe sampling.

“Let’s Live Long and Live Well” is the second program in the Healthy Living series and is open to all. The final session in the series will be “Healthy Snacking” from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Feb. 27. The fee for this series is $5 each session. Classes can be taken individually or as the whole series.

Registration for “Let’s Live Long and Live Well” is preferred by Jan. 20. For more information or to register, visit web.extension.illinois.edu/bdo or call the DeKalb County Extension office at 815-758-8194.
