Culinary Medicine & Mindful Eating: Cooking Better Tasting, Healthier Food!

March 28 @ 5:30 pm - April 18 @ 8:00 pm

$250.00

Join us for Culinary Medicine and Mindful Eating led by Dr. Laura Jones.

Thursdays, 5:30-8:00pm, March 28- April 18, 2024

Dr. Jones recently returned from a “Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives” continuing education conference for medical professionals. This conference was put on by the Harvard School of Public Health and was hosted at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa, CA. Dr. Jones is excited to share what she learned in her upcoming 4-week course, teaching patients more about how to prepare healthy & good-tasting food, employ food as medicine, and cook & eat mindfully.

Culinary medicine is an evidence-based field that combines nutrition and culinary knowledge to teach patients to improve and maintain health. Culinary Medicine employs high-quality, healthy food, simple yet tasty recipes, and plenty of education to inspire patients to use food to take care of their bodies and become enthusiastic about cooking.

The field of Culinary Medicine was born out of the realization that evidence-based nutrition education is desperately needed in our country and in our communities. Poor diet has been identified as the primary contributor to early death and loss of health in the US. Almost 80% of chronic diseases in the U.S. are preventable through lifestyle changes. Food is a great place to start!

Recipes in Dr. Jones’ course will combine Whole Food/Mediterranean/Plant Forward approaches to eating, not forgetting the importance of protein with each meal. Subject matter will focus on the health benefits of certain foods, eating to reduce chronic disease risk, foods that support a healthy microbiome, and consumption of foods that create a lower environmental burden in an effort to preserve our planet. Class times will start off with a presentation, followed by a cooking and tasting session.
