Every Kid Healthy: Sustainable Changes For A Lifetime
The CIS office is doing its bit to promote campus health and wellness by developing a fun and informative set of lunch-time express sessions to celebrate Every Kid Healthy Week. There will be recipe demonstrations, nutrition education, a lesson in deconstructing food labels, exercises on relieving stress and how to effortlessly incorporate physical activity into our daily lives.
Event Information will be posted on the CIS Bulletin Board near the small gym. Events are open to interested students. Stay tuned!

Oil-Free Hearty Protein Salad
This is a quick and easy salad meal, perfect for the hot summer months. It requires no cooking and can be made ahead.
1 15 oz. can chickpeas
2 cups red or green cabbage, sliced thin
1 small cucumber, peeled and diced
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
1 handful cilantro, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 small clove garlic, finely minced
1 big pinch chili powder or crushed peppers (optional)
2 tsp. ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Drain and wash the chickpeas under running water. Set aside.
For the dressing, throw in a handful of the cooked beans into a blender jar with the lime juice, cumin, chili pepper (if using), salt and pepper. Process until creamy. Thin with water or lime juice, as necessary.
To assemble, place the chickpeas in a large bowl. Tip in the cabbage, cilantro and green onions. Pour the dressing evenly and toss well to combine. Serve cold.
