Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

  • Are all vegetables better to eat raw rather than cooked? Are canned vegetables ever more nutritious than fresh? You may be eating vegetables and fruits considered to be healthy, but are you getting the most out of them?

    The answers – No, yes, and maybe not – are in Eating on the Wild Side,” which is the Oriental Food Initiative’s latest Food for Thought community read.
    The book by Jo Robinson recounts how nutrition was bred out of produce over time and offers tips on how to work that back in.

    Read “Eating on the Wild Side” and join the discussion on Monday March 13, 2017 at 6:30p. It takes place at St. Thomas Episcopal Church Parish Hall, Freemason Street in Oriental.

    OFI periodically organizes these Food for Thought community discussions on books concerning what we eat. The public is invited to join in by reading the chosen book and then sharing their thoughts. (Even if you haven’t read it, you are welcome to attend.) January’s discussion of Mark Bittman’s ‘Food Matters’ was cancelled due to weather. If there is interest, that book may also come up for discussion as well.) For more info, call 675-0180.
