The group was taken to highlands garden community garden were they observed fruits, vegetables and herbs in their natural state and even harvest some of the produce.  Some of their harvest was saved and used for the main event.  On the upcoming Tuesday we hosted a taco night for them  The purpose of the taco night was to use something they re familiar with to introduce them to healthier alternatives.  Jack fruit was the star of the show, it was prepared for them without them knowing it was not meat.  Many of them chose that over chicken! Another alternative was nonfat plain greek yogurt for sour cream this has much less calori
