Trails Momentum, an outdoor adventure-based therapy program for young adults ages 18-25, recently launched “Healthy Living”, a twelve week seminar series in which students will explore a variety of topics which promote nutrition awareness and best practices.
This seminar will kick off with a discussion around different kinds of dietary regimens. This portion of the seminar will be a combination of classroom education of dietary regimens and cooking specific meals based on each type of diet.
In addition to learning about diet types, the seminar series will include lessons on serving sizes of various food groups, the importance of water in the human body, the role of sleep on mental health, the benefits of stretching and exercise, and the positive impact that nature has on the human body.
“Each lesson will include research and will be directly connected with the healthy living practices at Trails Momentum,” says Dr. Sarah Parlier, Director of Student Development at Trails Momentum. “When students prepare meals throughout the program, we will be integrating a food-based lesson related to the preparation. Our goal is to help students build the knowledge and skills to carry these healthy living lessons into their daily lives as they enter young adulthood.”
