Keeping health in mind for outdoor grilling


MANCHESTER -- Summer barbeques sizzle and entice with foods fresh off the grill. Unfortunately, the hamburger, a summer staple, is a red meat treat that should be enjoyed sparingly. Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning is here to help on Sunday, June 22, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Equinox Village with "Cooking with Superfoods: A Healthified Version of a Burger and Fries."

Tom Festa, the executive chef of Equinox Village, will show how a few simple switches -- salmon for beef, sweet potatoes for potatoes -- can transform one of your favorite pub-menu indulgences into a satisfying and nutrition-packed meal. You’ll even learn a healthy and delicious no-fail dessert. A seated dinner with wine will follow the class.

Seating is limited; reserve your space at $45 per person online at or call Karen Dreiblatt at 802-867-0111.
