Monday – Prep for final: Ch. 8 Vitamins (Ch. 8 Test – class info. ) Using yogurt to make healthier muffins.
Overall wellness
What are the health benefits of yogurt? First off, let us not forget that yogurt comes from milk. So yogurt eaters will get a dose of animal protein (about 9 grams per 6-ounce serving), plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium.
But one of the words we’re hearing more and more of regarding yogurt is “probiotics.” Probiotics are “friendly bacteria” that are naturally present in the digestive system. Live strains of these “good bacteria” are also found in many yogurt products. While more research needs to be done, there’s some evidence that some strains of probiotics can help boost the immune system and promote a healthy digestive tract.

Pulses are part of the legume family, but the term “pulse” refers only to the dried seed. Dried peas, edible beans, lentils and chickpeas are the most common varieties of pulses. Pulses are very high in protein and fibre, and are low in fat.

Created Oct 2

Monday 10/02 Tomorrow is Ch. 6 Test on Fats
1. Each student read this paragraph on Lipids, and then write on a Google Doc (be certain to include your name on this document, and send to me.) what in your own words what this means.Lipids
Most lipids that you consume in your diet are fats. Some digestion occurs in your mouth and the stomach, but most takes place in the small intestine. Bile is produced by your liver, stored and released in your gall bladder and emulsifies fat globules into smaller droplets. This greatly increases the surface area that allows lipase, a fat-digesting pancreatic enzyme, to aid in digestion. After digestion, these broken-down fat particles called fatty acids combine with cholesterol and bile to move into your cells’ mucosa where they are reconverted into large molecules, most passing into vessels — called lymphatics — near the intestine. These vessels transport fat to the veins of your chest, and the blood carries fat to be stored in adipose tissue throughout your body.

Observe the “How Lipids Are Carried in Your Body Flow Chart from below. – Draw this out on a 1/2 sheet of paper (each person) and keep to study.
Next, each table group should get one copy of “Heart of the Matter” Act. D from Mrs. Beard. Work on this as a group – hand in with all your names on it.

Take the term list for ch. 6 that you should have picked up last week (or look back to the day on classroom I shared these with you) and make flash cards on the colored construction paper. Cut these out – do ONE set (unless you want your own) for each table group. Practice the terms with your table group for about 10 min. after you have finished making the flash cards.

Read pgs. 140-141 of the textbook. Answer on the same Google Doc you formulated about Lipids, but label this with the question: Describe exactly what causes a person to have a heart attack. Explain how this differs from the cause of a stroke.
Next, answer on the same document – (using the text, pg. 143) Why does smoking increase the risk of heart disease? What happens when a smoker quits smoking. Write the question and answer.
Using the text pg. 143-144 answer this (also on same google doc) – write out the question, so I can see what you are answering: Why does high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol place the heart at risk?
Same Google Doc – Scan the textbook (ch. 6) and write a list of tips for making diet changes. – Share this in your table group, and make a master list that represents your best list. This will be shared with the entire group. No need to write this on construction paper, just have it on one 1/2 sheet of paper with all your names on it, and share this when Mrs. Beard is ready to pull the group together. You may write this list on your google doc, or hand in the one master list. Mrs. Beard will ask you to do this when the group is all together in the center of the room – Compile tips that would help to reduce fat intake. Think about this as a table group – write on 1/2 sheet of paper and share with class. Include some fat replacer ideas.
Look over everything on ch. 6 and be ready for the test tomorrow!

Culinary Foundations and Food, Prep and Presentation Class Expectations

  • How should students work during individual work time?   Students should be actively engaged in assignments that involve reading and or writing relating to each topic in either food class. To do this students should not be on their phones (unless instructed by Mrs. McCranie). They should use their own pen or pencil and may use a copied activity sheet, recycled paper in the room or student’s own paper.
  • How should students behave during teacher-centered instruction? When Mrs. McCranie or a substitute is giving direct instruction through directions, sharing information or demonstrations, students should be listening, providing eye-contact, taking notes (if instructed), filling in work sheets (if instructed), providing feedback (when asked) and not on phones.
  • How should students work during group work? Each student should actively be working with other lab/table group members to accomplish the tasks necessary to complete the lab assignment. This includes:  Group assignments such as activity sheets, lab work such as – setting up with mice en place, cooking/baking, clean up, put away.
  • What should students do if arriving late to class?  Quietly enter the room, hopefully with a pass. Mrs. McCranie will note the time student arrives to add comment to attendance in Synergy. Student will talk to Mrs. McCranie AFTER direct instruction is complete, asking politely what was missed.  A student’s lateness affects lab group members on lab days as not all members are present to perform assigned tasks.
  • What should students do if they need to leave the classroom? Students should ask permission before leaving the classroom for the restroom, etc. unless there is an emergency. A pass will be written by Mrs. McCranie, before the student leaves the room. Students should wait until direct instruction has been provided by Mrs. McCranie or the sub before asking permission to leave the classroom, unless in case of an emergency.
  • What are expected behaviors for transitioning between activities? Students should move into transitioning activities such as lab work, or moving to a computer lab without disturbing other students and/or materials that belong to other students.  Move in an orderly manner without excessive noise or inappropriate movement such as running. Move to a computer lab by going through the hallway quietly, and directly to the room without added stops (unless approved by teacher).
