Nutrition Session 2: The Specifics

Grocery Bag With Fruits and Vegetables

Do you need help planning balanced, antioxidant-rich* meals? This small-group session is a follow-up to “The Basics” class. It provides you with specific menus based around centenarian principles and the vegetarian and Mediterranean-style patterns. (The Basics class is not required, but recommended.)

Simple menu plans and plant-rich plates are heart healthy, diabetic friendly, and cancer protective. Ideal if you’re trying to lose weight and want simplicity in the kitchen.

*Note: If you received a low antioxidant test score, i.e., Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS), when we tested you at the Kick-Off Shopping Party, the menus provided in this class will help you boost antioxidant activity and your SCS score.

OBJECTIVE: Learn how to put healthy eating into practice.

Our Vegetable Garden :)

I am amazed by Mother Nature. We planted our vegetables on July 2 and this is how they looked…

We planted crookneck squash, orange flesh honeydew melon (!), sweet bell peppers, habanero peppers, hot ‘n spicy oregano, cilantro, eggplant, and a variety of tomatoes. Basically, what was left having planted so late in the season.

And exactly two weeks later, this is how they looked…

It’s so fun to watch our veggies grow. Sometimes seemingly overnight!!!
