Lecture: Avoiding waste through better food preservation

Community Centre (1301 Rue du Bois)
Free! Reservation required: 450-424-8000 ext. 260

Conference in French by Anne-Marie Desbiens

Why do certain foods spoil faster than others? Is it important to wait for food to cool down before
refrigerating it? Why do certain fruits rot before even getting a chance to ripen? Which particular
fruits can you leave out on the counter to ripen?

Can we blindly trust the expiration dates on our food?

After all, we all know that nothing mysterious happens to our yogurt the night before it is set to expire. What we might not be aware of, however, is that our yogurt is very much alive—as are
most of the foods we eat. Different forms of yeast, mould and bacteria are busy brewing, sometimes for better and at other times for worse. The processes at work as our food deteriorates are quite complex. Leave it to Anne-Marie Desbiens, a chemist by training, as well as a columnist and blogger, to explain why it’s safe to eat yogurt that has passed its expiration date while chicken becomes unsuitable for consumption. Using images, words and humour, Anne-Marie Desbiens unveils the secret life of food and provides tons of helpful tips for better preservation and, as a consequence, less waste.

Conference in French by Carole Morency

Yoga is a discipline that involves much more than just postures—indeed, it tackles every dimension of human beings. As a practice that enables individuals to create a better reality for themselves, positive thinking is the very heart and soul of yoga.

What is the nature of your thoughts? Are you a slave to your thoughts, or a master of them? How do thoughts affect your life? What particular tools
can you use to foster positive thinking? What is meditation, and how do you practice it?

These questions and more will be addressed during this interactive conference on positive thinking. Those in attendance will find answers to their questions, possible solutions and concrete tools to help them become happier and contribute to the happiness that surrounds them.
