CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — Family and Community Health Sciences, part of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County, will hold a workshop on clean eating.

Participants at the Clean Eating in the New Year workshop will learn what clean eating is, the benefits of clean eating, the challenges of clean eating and diets that incorporate clean eating.

“Clean eating is a way of eating and living that lends itself to improving one’s health and well-being,” said Marilou Rochford, Family and Community Health Sciences educator. “Clean eating principles align with healthy eating principles. Therefore, they include eating more real foods, eating healthy balanced meals and snacks, eating more plant-based foods and exercising more.”

The workshop will include a light supper. The cost to attend is $15 and advanced registration is required by Jan. 24. Space is limited.

The program, part of an on-going wellness series offered by FCHS, will take place 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 355 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House.
