Digestive Health
Thursday, November 19, 2020 07:00pm to 08:30pm

In a public health climate where two out of three adults in the US are overweight or obese, the need for lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been. So many are suffering from digestive health issues and chronic health conditions that often originate from a fiber-poor diet. Fiber plays a key role in digestion, weight loss, and cancer prevention, and can even reverse disease. It is important to understand the link between diet and diseases of the gut. Don't be confused by packaged goods that add fiber; the best source is whole foods.


In this class, attendees learn about nutrition while asking questions and enjoying cooking demonstrations, all in a supportive online group setting.  Recipes and handouts will be provided prior to class. Pre-registration is required at least 24 hours in advance. Early Bird and Buddy Discounts are available.
