Banana Hurricane and Cherry Blood Moon. What do these names have in common, you ask? Well, over the past weekends, we began cooking nutrition bars for people with Parkinson’s. We all went over to Erin’s house, then came up with and executed recipes that are beneficial to people with Parkinson’s health. The first one we made contained brazil nuts, dried banana, ripe bananas, and raisins. This one didn’t turn out very well, so we added oats to thicken it up. This made it
more bar-like and we felt confident with the recipe. We then moved onto the next bar. This one contained coconut, mango, and cherries. This one tasted and looked very good, so we didn’t need to add anything
Invertigo Dance Theater, the organization that we wanted to pass our bars out to, got back to us after we contacted them and were interested in our project. They asked us for more details, and when we gave them, they told us when and where was best to go. Right now, we are writing the survey to hand out to the Invertigo Dance participants. It is important to us that they enjoy the snack just as much as it benefits their health. This week was probably our most productive week because we created the recipes for our bars, and found a date and place to hand them out. We learned that taking the initiative always leads to a good result. Go team!!
