Food For Thought: Nutrition Revelations
LectureNew Class

With so much nutrition information at hand—from extreme diets to government-mandated dietary guidelines—figuring out the healthiest foods to feed your family can be downright confusing. In this lecture, Annmarie Cantrell will separate fact from fiction. She’ll debunk diet myths and will present studies that support the health benefits of including nutrient-dense, healing foods in the diet, like bone broths and a mix of cooked, raw, and fermented vegetables. Most importantly, you’ll learn how high-quality fats can be particularly beneficial for brain health—important information for anyone dealing with ADD, learning disabilities and even depression. Additional tips on devising family menu plans will help you transition to a nutrient-dense diet. You’ll leave class armed with the facts and an appetite for healthier eating.
