Chatterbox for January

The October Sound Consumer cover story “The Truth About Fats” by Cherie Calbom generated much interest on our main PCC Facebook page, on Twitter and around the Web. More than 450 Facebook users “liked” the story. “Thank you for this article,” wrote Dawn Williams on the PCC Facebook page. “Last year I read a few books by [nutritionist] Mary Enig and it completely changed the way I eat. Coconut oil is my preferred oil to cook with now. My cholesterol numbers are better than ever since I switched. Eat fat and prosper!”

Our cooking program, PCC Cooks, and our Kid Picks program both have joined Facebook with their own pages as well. Join the conversation, get daily recipes, hear about upcoming cooking classes and more! Simply “like” our Facebook pages or follow us on Twitter.
