Want to learn healthy recipes? Are you in a food rut and sick of making the same meals over and over?
There are free cooking classes with Cooks of Crocus Hill that are being offered in connection with yumPower! Go to the yumPower website and sign up. They are being held at both the Shoreview Community Center and the Saint Louis Park Rec Center from 6:30-8:30PM on a few dates in September-November.

Along with walking away with new recipes and skills you will also get a swag bag for attending the class.
Remember those hilarious commercials with Andrew Zimmern from Bizzare Foods eating spiders with children during lunch? That commercial is part of the yumPower campaign to help people eat healthier. A topic that Andrew is passionate about. He decided to partner with Health Partners a health insurance provider in Minnesota who started the yumPower campaign and recently teamed up with Park Nicollet. But, you do not have to be a Health Partners member to go to the cooking classes or to use the website.
This is only one part of what the health insurance companies in Minnesota are starting to try and combat obesity. The yumPower website offers a restaurant locator which shows you healthier items on the menu and a My Kitchen section that offers healthy recipes.
because what is better than something fun that is free!
Concussion Discussion- Free Baseline Screenings
This Thursday-Saturday Health Fair 11 is offering free baseline concussion screenings for anyone ages 10-69 at the Science Museum from 10-4pm on a first-come-first-served basis.
It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete and you need to fill out a form that can be found on Kare11 and requires consent from an adult for anyone under the age of 18. Screenings will take place in the Science Museums computer education center and you will not need admission into the science museum to participate.
It is on the eve of many of the MSHSL tournaments and continues to bring awareness to the danger that concussions can bring.
Because a brain is a precious thing.
