Learn to care for your heart

University of Illinois Extension DeKalb County will offer “Meals for a Healthy Heart,” a program designed for anyone interested in preventing or managing heart disease.

The classes will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Feb. 4 and 11, at the University of Illinois Extension office, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore. Marilyn Csernus, nutrition and wellness extension educator, will be the instructor.

Participants will learn how to shop for heart-healthy foods and stock a healthy pantry; strategies to include more fruits and vegetables in your daily meals; how to select and use healthy oils and fats; ways to include fish, soy foods, legumes, nuts and seeds in meals; and much more.

At each session, participants will receive recipes, watch cooking demonstrations, taste foods to meet their dietary needs, and learn about proper diet and exercise to better care for their health. The fee for the two-session program is $15 per person. Registration by Friday is preferred. For more information or to register, visit web.exention.illinois.edu/bdo or call 815-758-8194.
