Free WOW! radio forum puts spotlight on healthy recipes

Dr. Kip Tulin presents “Looking At Our Past To See Our Future — Healthy Recipes,” a free WOW! Working on Wellness radio forum from 2-3 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, on KSQM 91.5 FM.

Tulin is the former volunteer medical director for the Dungeness Valley Health and Wellness Clinic (Sequim Free Clinic). He is a retired pediatrician and for more than 10 years has lived in Sequim.

He will talk about learning to love vegetarian options and what is now available in our markets and restaurants that was not even thought of just a few years ago. There are so many new and delicious choices like cauliflower rice or cauliflower pizza crust, cracker, chips or even cauliflower mac and cheese, program organizers note.

What people choose to eat has been rapidly changing, and in this forum Tulin will help us take a good look at why this is happening. Research shows that people tend to eat what they did as children, but many of those foods are no longer good choices for their health or for the future good health of our world. That can be because of new and different agricultural practices and because food processing has changed, too.

WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic — Sequim’s free clinic, which provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members. Work is supported by more than 70 volunteers including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.

The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients on Monday and Thursday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. Individuals interested in supporting the clinic may call 360-582-0218.
