January 2017 - Riding the Bus with My Sister by Rachel Simon

Date - Thursday, January 5, 2017 7:30 (discussion starts at 8p.m.) at Lindsey's house

Food - Beth's eating habits are often referred to in the book as a source of concern by some of her caregivers.  However, Beth cares more about riding the buses and therefore eats a lot of "on the go" foods.    I've included some of the different foods that Beth loves to eat, as well as the recipes that Jack shares with Rachel, as he plays an important part in Beth's life.   The list below is only some examples so feel free to be creative, bringing anything that you feel fits into a life that would include riding the bus daily!   Or if you want to take the role as caregiver you can bring food that her caregivers/family encourage (see pages 18/210-211). Ex: Vera tries to encourage Beth to include more veggies into her diet and teaches her to cook when she is in a group home setting.

Examples of Beth's eating and Jack's recipes
