« back to classes page
This course will discuss the impact of diet on health, basic principles of culinary medicine, and preventing and mitigating disease risk through good dietary habits.  This course is intended to provide students with information, guidance and strategies to expand, rather than limit, food choices while managing their health and/or chronic conditions.  Discussions will focus on the role of nutrition in chronic disease management and prevention, pros and cons of fad diets, the use of spices and herbs in disease prevention, and maintaining flavor when limiting fats and sugars.  Cooking demonstrations will be given to provide a tasting experience.
