Review: "Health Matters" Series at Fairfield Public Library

The Health Matters series at the Fairfield Library is amazing!

Tuesday night Sept. 27 over 40 people gathered in to hear Tara Cook-Littman speak about "Real Food, how to find it and be sure it's real!"

The Real Food Stop Light was handed out to help attendees understand fake foods, bridging foods and real foods. The fake foods list had the red light over it and listed factory farmed-raised meat, poultry and fish, conventional dairy, gmo's... the bridging foods had a yellow light over it and listed organic grain fed meat and poultry, organic dairy and eggs from grain fed animals... the real foods had a green light over it and listed organic fruits and vegetables, organic legumes, nuts, seeds and whole grains, celtic sea salt...

The bottom line was to refrain from, as much as possible, the "Fake Foods" consume as much of the "Real Foods" as you can and use the bridging foods to fill in the gaps. The presentation was amazingly clear and Tara referred to her own journey, mother of three children, and how six years ago if someone told her that she would be eating mostly from the "Real Food" list she would not have believed them.

Her journey is like many others that have been re-introduced to "Real Foods," they feel as good as they did when they were in their 20's and look great.

The "Tara" juice at Catch A Healthy Habit Cafe is named after this Tara Cook-Littman. She works with clients individually to create better more balanced health.

Her cards can be found at .
