Interest Group Highlight – Healthy Heart

Interest Group Highlight – Healthy Heart By Jane Cooley

Healthy Heart meets for lunch now instead of dinner due to Covid19. We meet the Friday after the second Sunday.  The March meeting is March 18.

Currently, we have nine members who come regularly. Due to Covid19, we choose patio eating and fresh air.  The February meeting was held at Pure Soul Plant Based Eats in their parking lot. The next meeting will be March 18 at 11:30 a.m. at Lido’s Café on Fair Oaks Boulevard in Carmichael.

This group has been together for a long time, and we support each other as we enjoy hearing about each other’s lives. We talk about everything, including current events, world situations, what the ingredients are in a specific dish — you name it, we will talk about it.

We have recently welcomed two new members.  A third is interested but hasn’t been able to join us yet.  We get the names of members from the interest form that is filled out when joining or renewing membership in the branch.  Sometimes we get recommendations from others in our group.

When we met at night, we took turns hosting at our homes. The host made the main dish, and the rest of us brought salad, an appetizer, vegetables, or dessert.  We considered allergies to foods and diet choices such as vegetarianism.

We also kept our membership at eight due to the fact most dining room tables seat eight.  Like the rest of society, we have adjusted to changes.
