Crystal Lake Green Drinks
In McHenry County, the first Wednesday of each month is
Our next gathering is December 4th, 2013, from 5pm - 7pm
Dave Childress, Certified Nutritionist and manager of Crystal Lake Health Foods will give a short talk on how stress affects our digestion (especially around the Holidays) and what we can do to work toward a healthier stress response. A little anatomy and physiology mixed with great company, food and drink should make for an interesting presentation. Q&A to follow .
Dave has lived in Crystal Lake almost all his life, graduating from Crystal Lake Central High School in 1977. In 1979, he began working at the Crystal Lake Health Food Store and immediately took a strong interest in nutrition. Learning under Bob Edwards, the founder, he read as much as he could and eventually became store manager. After many years of experience, working with the store's great customers and staff, he completed a degree of Certified Nutritionist in 2001. He truly enjoys what he does here at the store and wouldn't trade it for anything! He lives with his wife, Sue, in Crystal Lake and together they enjoy whitewater canoeing and skiing. He is also a jazz pianist and saxophonist and has played with many groups over the years, especially the John Weber Trio usually to be found at Liquid Blues or Stage Left in Woodstock.
