Before you take a bite out of a turkey leg or shop until you drop on Black Friday, stop by the Niles Public Library for two programs on saving money with coupons and reducing the calories in your favorite holiday dishes.
With television shows like “Extreme Couponing,” you can’t help but be interested in how those money savers know all the tricks. Christy, the coupon lady, will show you all the tricks to getting the most out of coupons on Tues., Nov. 13 at 6:30pm.
After you’ve added up all your savings, why not save on calories while enjoying your holiday meals? Cathy Leman, a registered dietician, certified personal trainer and author will offer tips on how to reduce the calories and fat in some of your favorite holiday dishes on Thurs., Nov. 15 at 7pm. Also, learn some techniques to make mindful food choices at parties and end-of-the-year celebrations.
During the month of November, Leman’s organization NutriFit will donate a portion of all “Eat Healthy. Live Healthy. 114 Easy Ways to Make Good Nutrition a Habit” booklet sales to The Northern Illinois Food Bank. Copies of the booklet will be available at the discounted price of $5.00 per copy to attendees of this special program.
Registration is requested for both programs by calling 847-663-1234 or online at nileslibrary.org/calendar.
