TOPS 0308 members strive wholesome recipes | Well being


Two “heart healthy” recipes from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s book “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease” has been tasted by members of TOPS Chapter 0308 (Take Off Pounds Sensibly).

The book is recommended by Franklin County, Pennsylvania, Healthy Eating Adventure, a wellness program developed by Dr. Liz George, the Mercersburg Area Council for Wellness, Wilson College, Shippensburg University, and others.

The chapter’s “safe, socially distant hikers” covered more than 100 km in the past week, despite freezing temperatures and snow-covered sidewalks.

Virginia Rodgers telephoned her weekly Laugh Your Way to Health program and gave Linda Norris a TOPS bracelet charm to help her achieve the top loser status of the month.
