Description

We know how to grow or buy nutritious, organic produce – but do we know how to prepare it to provide delicious meals and proper nutrition for ourselves and our loved ones?
We know that organic practices are good for the earth – but do we know why they’re important for our bodies, too?

The Suppers Program, NOFA-NJ, and Gravity Hill Farm present a series of workshops on food and nutrition, including a hands-on cooking demo, to help our communities develop a better understanding of their bodies’ relationship with food, and expand the ways in which we can prepare the foods we get from our gardens and organic farms. 

Difficulty focusing is a problem that hinders the lives of children and adults.  This issue is thought to have behavioral causes, emotional causes, and brain chemistry causes among others.  Our workshop will discuss lifestyle and diet changes that can help.  The focus is on healthy eating with a diet rich in nutrient dense produce and low in environmental toxins.  We will discuss how and why it is important to eat an anti-inflammatory diet to maintain brain health.  We will make and sample healthy brain nourishing snacks.  Please notify us at education@nofanj.org if you have any specific dietary restrictions.

 

This workshop is part of a series. The others are as follows:

Thursday, April 20– Seasonal Eating with Andrew Appello
Thursday, June 8– Cooking and Nutrition for ADD/ADHD with Andrew Appello
Thursday, June 29 – Food as Medicine for Diabetes Prevention, Management, and Reversal with Dor Mullen 

All workshops will be held from 6-8 pm at The Barn at Gravity Hill Farm, 67 Pleasant Valley Rd, Titusville NJ.
