Lunch Bunch: America’s Got a Sweet Tooth with Linda Stern, MD

April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Meet at Cedars House Café, Northwestern Ave. and Forbidden Drive. (GPS directions do not work for this site.)

We all know that sugar is bad for us.  But why?  Are all sweeteners the same? What about artificial sweeteners? Meet at Cedars and pre-order a nutritious lunch.  We will then take a brisk walk to the covered bridge and back to get our heart rates up and our endorphins pumped! Over lunch we will discuss why we love sugar, and what it does to our minds and bodies.  Are there some safer alternatives?  Linda is a retired physician who has a passion for looking at health from different points of view and wants to hear from you.

Distance:  2 miles
Level: Moderate
