    Allergies are the body’s response to toxins that a weakened immune system cannot handle. Seasonal allergies (external) and/or food allergies (internal) result when foreign elements invade the body and cannot be eradicated. Asthma is an allergic reaction to certain triggers that aggravate and inflame the lung tissue, and can become systemic over time. Keeping the body in balance, and the immune system strong, can prevent allergies from taking hold. 

    Come and discover:

    • Why certain “body types” are more prone to allergies 
    • How digestion impacts allergic reactions The role of metabolism in allergic responses 
    • The effect of vaccinations on the body Techniques to balance and strengthen the immune system

    The Pawling Library and Putnam Independent Living Services are partnering to offer you the National Diabetes Prevention Program.

    Prevent Type 2 will give you a full year of support to help you to: 

    • Eat healthy
    • Add physical activity to your day
    • Manage stress
    • Stay motivated 

     

    Please join us. 

    YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE FOR LIFE

     

    Putnam Independent Living Services and the Pawling Library partner to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program Virtually 

    Luke is one of the 84 million Americans who have been diagnosed with prediabetes, a condition where your blood sugar is high but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. He completed the Prevent Type 2 National Diabetes Prevention Program and had this to say “I’ve lost over 30 pounds.  It’s been a slow, steady change over the year I was enrolled in the Prevent T2 Program at Putnam Independent Living Services. I feel great!” 

    One in three American adults have prediabetes. You can take the CDC Risk Test at https://doihaveprediabetes.org / for a quick (2 minute) answer to what your risk is for developing the disease.  If you’re at high risk it’s a good idea to see your health care provider for a blood test.  The good news is that with an early diagnosis prediabetes can be reversed.  With December kicking off the holiday season, it’s a good time to get started.  

    By joining the National Diabetes Prevention Program you’ll learn how to make small changes, like altering your diet and exercising more which can help to reverse prediabetes and prevent type 2 diabetes.  You’ll read labels and make choices, keeping in mind that, if you plan for it, a small serving of your favorite holiday food it doesn’t have to be on the naughty list. 

    You can help to holiday proof your plan by making sure you keep moving. Walking with friends and family is a great activity after a holiday meal. Even when the weather is chilly you can dress appropriately and enjoy the crisp winter air.  

    Luke offers some advice “You have a lot on your plate this time of year so it’s also important to plan ahead and remember portion control.  Portion control was key for me.  Skip the seconds and stick to drinking water to eliminate high calorie beverages.”    

    Prevent Type 2 is a one-year program that offers a Life Style Coach, a Center for Disease Control (CDC) curriculum and the support of participants like you who are ready to get serious. The Life Style coach helps participants reach the goal of losing 7% of their body weight and increasing physical activity to 150 minutes or more every week.    

    PILS is partnering with the Pawling Library to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program free to adults in Dutchess County in January 2021. Sessions will be delivered to the group remotely and participants will need a phone, tablet or computer with internet access.  

    Luke endorses the program heartily, “My tests show that I’m no longer prediabetic and I credit the Diabetes Prevention Program for the help and support. “   

    To find out more about Prevent Type 2 contact Lonna Kelly at 845.228.7457 ext.1110 or email lkelly@putnamils.org.

    About our presenter:  I’d like to tell you a bit about my evolution as a chef. I have loved feeding people for as long as I can recall. I have also loved to educate and inspire, to instruct people through new and amazing experiences. I have always felt that these experiences should bring about a change in the way we see things. They should change how we feel about the everyday mundane necessities. Eating, for example, is a basic need, but something that I experienced early in life as a pleasure not to be squandered. I was fortunate to be surrounded by people who fostered this same attitude. It was through these people that I became intensely involved in food and experienced my first eggplant, my first perfect tomato, my first sushi and eventually my first caviar, foie gras and oyster. 

         I was pursuing a degree in English when I began my career in restaurants. I worked first in the front-of-house as a waiter and bartender. After several years of exposure to the unique culture of restaurant life through these positions, I ventured behind the scenes and into the kitchen at age 22. Struck by an initial obsession with pastry, I took a job as pastry chef at a small restaurant in my native Providence, Rhode Island. Before long, I turned my attention to savory fare and began working at Al Forno Restaurant, also in Providence, to start my first formal training in the kitchen with Chefs George Germon and Johanne Killeen. From Al Forno I migrated to the restaurant New Rivers to train with Chef Bruce Tillinghast, who himself had been instructed in purist French technique at Madeleine Kamman’s school, Modern Gourmet. 

         Long an admirer of the Los Angeles landmark establishment Patina, having drawn inspiration from the pages of its much circulated cookbook, I became determined to one day train in its kitchen. In 2002, I made the critical move to Los Angeles, where I obtained a coveted position at the high-profile restaurant, initially as a vegetable cook for Chef de Cuisine Eric Greenspan. When Patina moved downtown to the newly built Walt Disney Concert Hall, I was promoted to meat/fish chef and ultimately Sous Chef under Theo Shoenagger, an acclaimed Italian Chef from Northern Italy. 

         A year and a half later, Eric Greenspan invited me to accompany him to his new venue, Meson G, voted “Los Angeles’ Sexiest Restaurant 2005” by Angeleno Magazine. Another year later, I was recruited by Kor Hotel Group for the position of Executive Chef at the newly opened bistro in the Chamberlain West Hollywood Hotel. There my passion for French cuisine found full expression in a supportive, creative and intellectual environment.

         I returned home to New England in 2008 to raise my family and to be part of the culinary revitalization here. I want to educate people about the joys of cooking and eating. In August of 2011 I opened Mijos Tacos, serving authentic LA style Mexican street food to the people of Providence. My commitment to local food and home cooking has never been stronger. 

         While pursuing an English degree, I started working as a server and quickly became obsessed with the food and beverage world. I decided to try my hand at pastry, and worked at Seven Stars Bakery for long enough to know that pastry wasn’t my passion. I then moved on to work as a prep cook at Al Forno and New Rivers in Providence. It was while I was at New Rivers that I discovered the Patina cookbook and decided that someday I would work at Patina. I moved to Los Angeles to pursue that dream. I worked my way up from veg cook to sous chef at Patina under Eric Greenspan, and Theo Shoenagger. I left Patina to be sous chef with Eric Greenspan at Meson G, before accepting an executive chef position at the Chamberlain Hotel in West Hollywood. It was there that I got to flex my creative muscles and really stretch out as a cook. The one constant during my time in LA was that after work, I’d head out for a few beers (or bourbons depending on how bad I got my butt kicked at work) and inevitably hit the taco trucks for late nite deliciousness. When I moved back to RI to raise my children, we celebrated having ready babysitters but mourned the loss of our beloved taco trucks. So, I started making tacos. First I made them for us and our friends who used to visit us in LA, then they started telling other people, and before I knew it I was feeding 20+ people at a stretch every time I made tacos and getting harassed for not making them often enough. I ran my taco truck around New England for 8 wonderful years and finally sold it for a less mobile cooking life in the winter of 2018. Food trucks are a young persons game. Now I offer private cooking lessons, personal chef services, in home fine dining and food and beverage consulting services. Let's have some fun.
