Event Details

Outsmarting Disease and the Mediterranean Diet:

The Clever Kitchen and UTHealth have partnered to deliver the perfect course to help start the new year with a heart-healthy lifestyle change. “Outsmarting Disease and the Mediterranean Diet” is a three-week hands-on cooking course focused on the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, which promotes fresh and seasonal plant-based foods—including fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, olive oil, herbs and spices—as well as fish and poultry, while limiting red meats and sugar. 

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, primary prevention is the most effective and affordable method to prevent chronic disease, and dietary interventions positively impact health outcomes across the lifespan. The Mediterranean diet is not about recipes or diet plan but quality food components. Research has shown that patients who follow the Mediterranean diet have a 30% reduction in death for all diseases.

Attendees will join registered dietitian nutritionist Pam Fullenweider in a fun and engaging setting, as they create healthy, delicious meals in UTHealth’s state-of-the-art Nourish kitchen, using fresh, seasonal herbs and vegetables from the campus holistic garden. By the end of the course, participants will have a menu of seasonal recipes for a week's worth of meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) as well as the understanding to build their own meal plans and recipes based on the Mediterranean diet.

The Nourish Program:

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health's Nourish Program has established a nutrition hub in the heart of the Texas Medical Center providing a unique training ground for students, health care professionals, and community members from across Texas and nationwide. This first of its kind initiative educates and equips participants with the tools, knowledge, and hands-on experience necessary to prevent and address nutrition-related health conditions.The initiative also facilitates collaborative inter-institutional research.

In addition, the Nourish Program has brought training of health professionals in line with several national initiatives and guidelines. This innovative program has closed the gap in nutrition training and education research among students, health care professionals, and community members to ultimately lower rates of obesity and nutrition-related chronic diseases.

The Nourish Program features three state-of-the-art integrated facilities – a Research and Development Kitchen, Holistic Garden, and Simulation Lab.

This program is in partnership with the Tulane University Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine and delivered through the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living.
