Joan Younce, from Purdue Extension Kosciusko County, presented a nutrition program on Monday, Feb. 25, at the Milford Public Library. Her topic, titled “Five Ingredients or Less,” explored the numerous options of delicious, healthy meals you can create using five ingredients or less.
Ms. Younce demonstrated how to make fruit salad, orange glazed chicken skillet, quick chicken quesadillas and lemon pie, all using five ingredients or less. Eight people attended the program and Nancy Levernier won a copy of the book, “Cooking Light 5 Ingredient 15 Minute Cookbook” and Terry Scybert won a copy of “Five Ingredient Fix; easy, elegant and irresistible recipes”, by Claire Robinson. These titles are also part of the library’s collection, so stop by and check them out today! Our next nutrition program will be in April. Don’t miss it!

If you are looking to refresh your look, try People Style Watch or Celebrity Hairstyles. You may want to check out Travel or National Geographic Traveler to get ideas for a possible summer vacation.
