LOACC focuses on brain health, eating more veggies

SUBMITTED PHOTO - Learn to prepare nutrient-dense foods for one or two people at a special class to be held Oct. 18.

In an effort to help make the changes people experience as they age easier, the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center is partnering with Providence Health and Services and Stephanie Barnett-Herro of Clackamas County Behavorial Health to present two classes designed to keep brains and bodies healthy.

Barnett-Herro will share how brain games can help keep minds sharp and healthy. The brain may not be a muscle, but it needs stimulation and a workout to help grow new neurons. Barnett-Herro will lead participants through games like Rush Hour Traffic Jam Puzzle and Quadrillion; riddles and conversation starters will also be included. The class will be offered from 1-2 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 10. The class is free, but registration is required.

The second offering is a food preparation demonstration with Chef Tse. Chef Tse studied at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, mastering disciplines of cuisine and pastry.

She interned at Le Restaurant Guy Savory, a Michelin three-star restaurant in Paris. Through the LOACC’s partnership with Providence, Chef Tse will present “Seasonal Cooking and the Power of Fresh Produce” at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18. The focus of the free demonstration is creating nutrient-dense recipes for one or two people, and the event includes tasting.

On the menu

The lunch menu this week features teriyaki chicken on Friday, Oct. 7; beef pot roast on Monday, Oct. 10; and chicken tetrazzini on Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
