BATON ROUGE, La. – Eating healthy during the holidays doesn’t have to be a struggle. Baton Rouge General and its BRG Fit! team want to help you enjoy those seasonal staples without the guilt. A Nov. 15 Lunch and Learn event will be held on the Bluebonnet campus, led by a BRG dietitian who will dish out details on how to put a healthy spin on popular holiday recipes.

“Believe it or not, it is doable to maintain your health and fitness goals through the holiday season,” said Kristin West, a registered dietitian at BRG. “We are happy to let you in on some simple secrets that will help you stay on track while also enjoying those holiday ‘comfort foods’.”

The noon event will include a cooking demo and a sampling of tasty treats created by BRG’s award-winning chef. Attendees will leave with a recipe card so they can recreate the dishes at home.

Lunch will be provided. The event is free, and registration is required.
