Skinny Wednesday event to offer healthy options

Tue Feb 21, 2017

With Mardi Gras ending on Feb. 28 with Fat Tuesday, healthy eating options often become a priority for many people.

For those with a hunger for improving their well-being, Brazosport College is introducing Skinny Wednesday on March 1, a day packed full of eating tips, a farmer’s market with healthy fresh food, and meditation.

The event begins at 10:30 a.m. with a Smoothie & Juicing Workshop at the College’s Community Education Kitchen in Room B.115. During this workshop, which will run until 12:30 p.m., participants will learn how to create tasty and nutritional smoothies and juices, as well as enjoy an opportunity to taste free samples. There will be a new workshop every 30 minutes.

Also, beginning at 11 a.m. and going until 1 p.m., a free farmer’s market will be held in the Blue Parking Lot. Located in the parking area near The Clarion at Brazosport College, the farmer’s market will allow everyone to take home fresh fruits and vegetables, all free for the community.

The day continues at 1 p.m. with a free yoga class in the College’s Student Pavilion. Participants will meet at the Student Life Counter, located at Room J.117.

The local communities are invited to Skinny Wednesday, which is sponsored by multiple Brazosport College departments, including the Office of Student Life, Community Education, the Health and Wellness Office and the Employee Development Center, as well as the Brazosport Cares Food Bank and the Houston Food Bank.
