Wellness Wednesdays: Nutrition as We Age, Lecture and Cooking Demonstration


Wed 04 / 21 / 2021
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM


Glover Park Village

Who can attend

Open to all

Limited capacity: Registration Closed



Cooking: Learn to make a versatile soup that can be adapted to all seasons.  In this Spring version, leeks, carrots and Shitake mushroom with quinoa in a miso/kombu seaweed broth make a nourishing soup that cooks quickly and can be the base for an “all-in-one” meal.

Nutrition: Chef Tahar will answer questions and discuss the nutritional values of this dish. Rich in anti-oxidants, ginger provides a spicy contrast to leeks’ sweet taste, while miso is a boost of probiotics, and Kombu seaweed contains minerals.  Quinoa's popularity is due to its gluten-free, low fat, protein and minerals-rich content. It is also easily digested and cooks quickly.

RSVP:  To or call 202-436-5545 by Monday, April 19, 2021 to receive the recipe and Zoom invitation link.

Chef: Juliette G. Tahar, MS, Nutrition Science is the founder and current executive director of Healthy Living Inc. She has been teaching about wellness and natural foods cookery since 1992 and community nutrition programs since 2003.

This is a free event offered by Glover Park Village, Inc., a volunteer-managed organization that helps neighbors stay in the community, fosters intergenerational relationships and is supported by donations and grants.
