'Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and vitamin B6,' Beaumont dietitian Silvia Veri said.
You can almost taste the tacos and smell the spicy salsa just thinking about Cinco de Mayo, a day many will celebrate Mexican heritage and culture. But you don’t have to be Mexican to participate in festivities or to enjoy the delicious food. On this day, Americans will use 81 million pounds of avocados in their Cinco de Mayo meals – that is 162 million individual pieces of this delicious green fruit, according to the California Avocado Commission. Guacamole, made predominantly of avocados, is a popular food people eat on this cheerful holiday. “Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and vitamin B6,” said Silvia Veri, a registered dietitian and nutrition supervisor at Beaumont’s Weight Control Center …

Several sponsors helped the Friends of Grosse Pointe Parade create and unveil the Grosse Pointe Wellness Express Train to make its debut in the parade the day after Thanksgiving along Kercheval Avenue.
The Santa sleigh that marks the corner of Kercheval Avenue and St. Clair Street for the last several holiday seasons spurred the Friends of the Grosse Pointe Parade to continue building. Last year the group presented the Toys for Tots Caboose, which held all of the toys donated by Grosse Pointers for children in the metro area. This year, the non-profit organization created the Grosse Pointe Wellness Express in partnership with several businesses and sponsors.

As the new school season starts up, Grosse Pointe parents and teens are being encouraged to attend a series of four talks exploring the causes of stress and depression in young people that’s being organized by the Beaumont, Grosse Pointe Health Coalition. According to Suzy Berschback, manager of community affairs and advocacy for Beaumont Grosse Pointe, the inspiration for the series was the “firestorm” of calls coalition members received after the Grosse Pointe Academy’s January showing of “Race To Nowhere,” a documentary about the stress the nation’s educational system is placing on students.
