March Pharma Foodie
Pharma Foodie is an on-going series – a collaboration between Learning Center Chef-Instructor Nina Lesser-Goldsmith and Nutritionist Kim Evans. In these classes we look at the value and pleasure of using food to treat, prevent, and address chronic disease. What a great concept! We work with our culinary “pharmacy” (food ingredients) to design dishes that will delight our tastes and senses for the sake of creating a foundation of good health. Specific case examples will be presented as a glimpse at how nutrition is part of functional and integrative health care solutions.
We all want to age gracefully, to slow the wrinkles, to keep our minds focused and our eyes bright. Who knew it could be so much fun and so delicious? It turns out, anti-aging, the process of slowing down the effects of aging, is best attended to by the foods we eat. In this edition of Pharma-Foodie, Learning Center Chef-Instructor and Registered Dietician Abby Wadsworth team up to share some fabulous dishes that can help you reduce the signs of aging. Anti-aging foods reduce free-radicals in the body to boost longevity and speed up metabolism. Think healthy brain, a good memory, clear vision, and the yum factor.
