We have officially finished the first 2 weeks back of school! Time really flies.
2nd semester of sports medicine is off to a great start and it looks to be even more interesting than the previous section. Our teacher, Mrs. Kahn, kickstarted the semester off with a unit about nutrition. I was so excited to learn about this topic! This is actually the topic that drove me to initially want to take this course. I really want to learn more about nutrition and what is healthy to put into my body. I have been getting into food and nutrition a lot more lately in my daily life. I even helped my grandpa cook thanksgiving dinner! (picture below)
This week we focused a lot on carbohydrates. We learned what they are, where they can be found, and if they are healthy for our body. We learned that anything that has any type of sugar in it has carbohydrates! That includes dairy, fruits, vegetables, breads, and many more. Today we just got back from an amazing field trip to a farm in Pescadero. I won’t give too much away because I will blog about it in a little bit, but here are a few pictures to enjoy as a preview!
