A Holistic Approach to our Daily Food
August 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$45
With Elaina Merlis
Did you know that what you eat affects not just your weight, but your overall physical and mental well-being and that of the entire planet? Join Elaina Merlis, a cancer survivor and personal chef, as she tells us about her journey to health and ways in which food can support our wellness and that of the earth.
What Will I Learn?
Elaina will share how she grew up the granddaughter of a kosher butcher and how her battle with cancer caused her to re-think what she thought she knew about food. While not a dietician or nutritionist, Elaina will explain what she has learned from professionals and her own investigation. We will discuss how food impacts our health and the world around us, why it is important to source the most local food available, what food choices to avoid, and the ways in which our food choices can impact the world. We will also be exposed to new ideas for eating. The class will include tasty samples and a demonstration of one recipe.
Space is limited and pre-registration required. Please arrive 15 minutes early.
