Mountain Palace - Seaweed Weekend!

The special at Mountain Palace this weekend is Seaweed: Seaweed Salad and Pork Seaweed Rice. Additionally, a Cooking Class will be held Sunday 11:00 for you to learn to prepare and cook this nutritious happy healthy food. Class is $25 with all the seaweed you can eat!
Especially those with thyroid conditions may be interested. Note the following clip from Healthy Living:
     "Seaweed's best-known benefit is that it is an extraordinary source of a nutrient missing in almost every other food: iodine. Consuming healthy levels of iodine is critically important to maintaining a healthy thyroid, a gland in your neck which helps produce and regulate hormones. A malfunctioning thyroid can result in a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, muscle weakness and high cholesterol (to name a few). In severe or untreated cases, it can lead to serious medical conditions like goiters (a swelling of the thyroid gland), heart palpitations and impaired memory."
Come to Mountain Palace this weekend to enjoy our Seaweed Special and/or the Sunday Cooking Class.
Traditional Chinese Medical Exercise Class is Saturday at 11:00 at Mountain Palace.
Chinese Meridian System Acupressure continues Fridays at 1:30 in Latrobe at 350 Main Street.  724 717-8614
