JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (January 4, 2021) -- Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Chautauqua County’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is excited to announce, “Menu Planning with Heather and Trish” on Facebook Live and two guest appearances on the Access Chautauqua Show, “Fresh Perspectives” with Gail Erb.
Heather Gregory and Trish Dragoo have ventured into the world of Facebook Live and are planning their weekly dinner menus in real time. During their 30-minute presentation, each Friday at 11:30 AM, they discuss the challenges and pitfalls of planning family meals, offer tips on how to incorporate more veggies into your meals, answer questions from viewers and go over local sales flyers. They emphasize flexibility and the importance of letting go of feelings of guilt and failure when days or weeks do not go as planned. All Live posts, including the weekly menus and more, can be found on the Nutrition Educators of CCE Chautauqua County Facebook page.
In October, Trish, along with Cattaraugus County CCE EFNEP Nutrition Educator, Gayle Patterson, visited Gail Erb’s show “Fresh Perspectives” on cable Access Chautauqua. Trish and Gayle discussed the beginnings of CCE and how EFNEP works. “Fresh Perspectives” episode # 121 can be seen now at www.accesschautauquacountytv.org.
On December 12th, Trish and Heather visited Gail to record another episode of, “Fresh Perspectives”. In this episode, Trish and Heather do a cooking demonstration and make “Mulligatawny Soup,” due to air and post January 9, 2021. Heather and Trish will return to do episodes about yoga and smoothies. Watch for these February 27th and later in April.
