About Eating for Your Health
At Eating For Your Health we support people in changing the way they eat and transforming their relationship with food. We believe that every person and every body is unique and that no single approach to food is right for everyone; so we encourage participants to explore and experiment with food that reflects their taste, budget, background and culture. We emphasize the importance of eating single, whole fresh ingredients and avoiding processed foods whenever possible, but we do not advocate one single approach to food or way of eating.
The course will be recorded and made available to registrants within two weeks after the course date.
This presentation is offered free of charge as part of the Dorothy Mullen Speaker Series and registration is required. Eating for Your Health is a not-for-profit and your support is appreciated.
