Wellness Series with Nutrition Consultant Madia Jamgochian

Join us for this FREE 4-week series during the month of January and learn how to jumpstart your health with the following nutrition related topics:

Class # 1 Tuesday, January 8: Start Your Day with Protein- Healthy habits developed early last a lifetime and breakfast is one of the best habits to establish. Eaten regularly, a protein-rich breakfast can be life changing! Learn how to incorporate protein-rich foods into your breakfast routine. Get tips for meals outside the breakfast box.

Class # 2 Tuesday, January 15: Choose Smart Carbs- Carbohydrates, often referred to as carbs, are found in more than just bread. Of the three macronutrients – carbohydrates, fat, and protein – carbs have the greatest impact on blood sugar levels. Explore seasonal options for smart carbs, including vegetables, grains, and legumes.

Class #3 Tuesday, January 22: Embracing Healthy Fats- Although our modern culture has distorted our perspective on fats, some fats are essential for optimal health. Historical and scientific evidence show that our ancestors did not suffer from many modern chronic diseases even though they ate wholesome, unprocessed fat-rich foods. Discover our favorite sources of fats and how they are part of a healthy diet.

Class #4 Tuesday, January 29: Eat More Veggies- Ever heard of nutrient density? This is a term that measures the nutrient concentration in a food, per calorie. Vegetables are at the top of this list. Low in carbohydrates but chock full of vitamins and minerals, veggies come in a rainbow of colors, and each color signifies a unique nutrient composition.

*Since we only have room for 20 class participants, seat priority will be given to those who pre-registered online. Please let us know if you are unable to make it.*
