Trying to make heart-healthy choices? Dining out doesn’t have to be difficult!
As you learned in TAM® training, drinking too much alcohol can lead to high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, and other health conditions. Learn more about alcohol and heart health at the AHA website, by taking an online TAM® course, or by joining us later this month at a special event.
As food and beverage professionals, TAM® students have a unique opportunity to help promote heart healthy food and beverage choices in their daily work. Restaurateurs and kitchen staff can develop healthy dishes to wow guests with discerning tastes. Servers can make recommendations about heathy menu items. And as individuals, we can all benefit from making smart choices in our own lives. What’s not to like about that? To promote these choices, attend the always exciting Flavors of the Heart event later this month. Join us for great education, great food, great tunes, and great company!
We’re pleased to announce that TAM® of Nevada staff volunteers will be on site to assist in the American Heart and Stroke Association’s Flavors of the Heart event in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 17th.
The purpose of this event is fourfold:
- To celebrate the wonderful Teens Cook with Heart Program in Las Vegas
- To educate the community on how to make healthier choices when eating out
- To motivate restaurants to create heart healthy dishes (and promote those dishes at this event)
- To increase awareness of the American Heart and Stroke Association and its mission
If you’ll be attending this fantastic event, TAM® Manager Sherry Cummings and additional TAM® Staff members will be on site and participating. Please stop by and say hello! Hearing directly from the community about what issues are important to them helps us to provide the best training possible for our students.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 17th. The event will include over 25 participating restaurants, food and wine tasting, music and special guests, and we’d love to see you there! Also be sure to stay up to date about this and other activities and events TAM® of Nevada will be attending by connecting with us on Facebook.
