Workshops

Kick Sugar Now!

The presentation focuses on sugar in our modern diet, what forms it takes
and how to get it out! Does that fudge recipe from your
great-grandmother make fudge an ancestral food? The discussion examines how
sugar affects you, your energy and your moods. Is it addictive? Are
artificial sweeteners a safe alternative? Learn about which sweeteners to
avoid and which ones to try. Looks across cultures and back into history to
put our sugar habits into historical context. This workshop encourages
lively discussion and questions from participants.

Eating for Energy

This workshop explores what could be holding you back food-wise from
sleeping hard, waking up easily and having even energy all day. Discover
how to break free from the addictive power of food we may be allergic to
and how to feel younger as you get older. Participants will have an
opportunity to explore the emotional power of food, comfort food,
emotional eating and will leave with a new understanding on how to make
lifestyle change actually stick. We’ll also explore super foods and discuss
how to work them into a busy life.

Nutrition for a Healthy Heart- Self-Nourishment from Your Food and Your Life

Let’s look at our health in the larger context: Why are some parts of the world “hot spots” for heart disease while other places are “cold spots?” Did our ancestors struggle with diseases such as heart disease? If not, why not? We’ll explore various strategies for heart health here and around the world and discuss why diets don’t work and how make lifestyle changes permanent. We’ll also explore how other forms of nourishment besides food contribute to long and healthy lives.

The Ancestral Food Workshop

This is a nutrition workshop that illuminates our current food trends by
placing them in historical context. It has been said that our food has
changed more in the last 30 years than in the previous 30,000 years.
In what ways has it changed? Are our bodies having a hard time
keeping up? What were the traditional foods passed down in your family and
how far back does the tradition go? Has the recent globalization of our food
supply affected your family? This workshop introduces some ancestral food
recipes and tells you where to get the ingredients locally.

The World Food Workshop

This is a nutrition workshop that illuminates our current food trends by
placing them in international context. Take a peek inside the kitchens of
families in ten foreign countries with a powerpoint slideshow to see what
they eat and what it looks like. These families and their countries are in
various stages of “modernization.” How much food comes in packages? How much
is refined or imported vs. fresh and local? How much meat do they eat? How
much sugar? What oil do they use for cooking? Do a little armchair traveling
around the world to explore our world’s foodscape, and then bring it home to
your kitchen. This workshop introduces some exotic food recipes and tells
you where to get the ingredients locally.
