Happy December!

Time to cheer…the season of citrus and pomegranates is here. A juicy orange brings sunshine to these short winter days, even if it does squirt you!

Winter weather doesn’t slow us. Take advantage of your FCP benefits with some desk-side learning and build your portfolio by joining a webinar. The variety of topics for our monthly webinars offers something for everyone. This month we’re learning from shellfish experts. Learn what’s scheduled next here.

The ballots are set for both our FCP Executive Committee and the Academy. The Nominating Committee had strong interest in many positions. I encourage you to participate, please vote in February.

 As Chair, my number one goal is that FCP be relevant to you by making your work or your life easier with resources and programs. Let me know what’s working and what could be tweaked so we can make FCP better than ever. In the meantime, share the deliciousness of what you’re cooking on our Facebook page at Food & Culinary Professionals Dietetic Practice Group.  

A popular component of my book, Your 6-Week Guide to LiveBest, Simple Solutions to Fresh Food & Well-Being, is soul food. We feed our souls through sharing, volunteering, laughter, learning, connecting with others and gratitude. This is the perfect season to practice!

Wishing you a soul-filling holiday season.

Warm regards,  

Judy Barbe, MS, RDN
2015-2016 FCP Chair
