Designed by physicians, nutrition experts, and registered dietitians, each class includes information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote or discourage cancer growth, along with cooking demonstrations of simple and healthy recipes that can be recreated easily at home.
Scientists have long been accumulating a large body of evidence on the influence of diet on cancer. Time and again, precious phytochemicals found in plant foods are credited with boosting immune strength and inhibiting disease progression. Along with protection from cancer, plant foods also promote a healthy weight and help prevent other chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease.
The goal of this program is to empower cancer survivors, their friends, and their family members with easy-to-implement cooking skills that turn every meal into a delicious dose of healthy nutrition.
This is a Four Class series which covers of all topics in series below.  Each class begins with a short nutrition video by Dr. Barnard, then the instructor demonstrates the recipe and discusses the ingredients and health benefits.  Finally, the students taste each of the items we prepare and discuss as a group.  

We offer a cooking demonstration and sample size servings at each class.
