Trying new foods.
Here's the message I received about an upcomming class. Because it is the end of the year, instead of a clinical class we are having a "fun" class.
"Next week you have from 11:30 - 1 for an "experimental foods" class. This class is intended to be FUN. Because we will be tasting a lot of foods, it is scheduled during your usual lunch break.
The objective of this class is to increase your awareness of foods that are not commonly eaten as part of the typical American Diet.
Please bring in an "unusual" food item that we can taste test. Be prepared to briefly talk about the item such as the nutritional value, health benefit or population that typically consumes this food."
