Food for Life Cancer Prevention and Survival Cooking Class
Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 6:00 PM (AKDT)
Anchorage, United States
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.
Each 2 hour class includes a nutrition video and discussion, followed by a cooking demonstration of 4 or 5 different foods. Attendees then have the opportunity to taste the food prepared in class. Yum!
