Are You too Refined? (Monday, March 23)
The standard American diet is filled with highly processed foods. Let’s face it, we all love our sweets and breads. But are you addicted to carbs? Come and learn about the effect of sugar and highly processed food on your body. You’ll also learn new recipes for healthy, but tasty snacks, how to prepare whole grains, nuts and beans to make them more digestible, and tips for stocking your pantry and freezer to save bountiful summer foods for the winter.
Slow Foods, Fast Dinner (Monday, April 20)
Want to make healthy dinners but don’t have the time? Learn how to prepare some quick and easy nutrient-dense meals and soups using homemade stocks. You’ll also learn how grassfed meats from local farms provide more nutrients than “supermarket” meats, and how to find local sources of high quality meat and poultry.
Super Nourishing Spring Greens! (Monday, May 18)
Leafy green vegetables such as arugula, spinach and kale help cleanse and detox the body after a long winter. Come learn about the health advantages of fresh organic spring greens and how to choose and prepare them. Confused about local farming techniques and what “certified organic” means? We’ll talk about the national
organic standards, other farming practices, and what questions to ask your local farmers so you know what you’re buying. You’ll learn some simple ways to prepare spring greens as well as healthy homemade dressings.
