Cooking to Combat COVID: Boosting Your Immune System

We still have spaces in three of the Cooking to Combat COVID: Boosting Your Immune System classes. They’re all online, so you don’t even have to leave your house to attend!

June 10 – Reducing Risk Factors: Foods for a Healthy Heart and Blood Pressure – Research shows a plant-based diet doesn’t just prevent heart disease, but it can manage and sometimes even reverse it. A plant-based diet can also help improve several risk factors for heart disease, including high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure. Includes heart-healthy options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

June 17 – Reducing Risk Factors: Fighting Diabetes with Food – People who eat plant-based meals are less likely to ever develop diabetes, and for those who have diabetes, plant-based meals can help to improve blood sugar levels and prevent complications.  A low-fat, plant-based approach offers a new tool that many have found to be very useful. Review the latest science behind this approach, consider some simple ideas for getting started, and learn four delicious dishes.

June 24 – Reducing Risk Factors: Foods for Maximum Weight Control – How can you lose weight, if needed, without skipping meals or limiting your portions? In a word, it’s all about FIBER. Plant-foods have it, animal foods do not. Fiber is what makes us feel full, and, as a bonus, it also helps to control blood sugar levels, protects against certain cancers, and, of no small importance, it keeps us “regular.” Learn to comfortably fill up on whole foods and watch the pounds melt away. And learn to make some delicious high-fiber dishes—without any cardboard taste.

Cost: $20 for a single class. Includes live, online classes on Zoom, nutrition information, live cooking demos, recipes, cooking tips, and healthy meal ideas!

Your Body in Balance: Balance Your Hormones, Regain Your Life!

Space is available as well in Your Body in Balance classes. It is also 100% online.

July 2 Foods for Fertility — During reproductive years, ovaries are ready to release an egg each month. But that process is easily derailed. If hormones are out of balance, ovulation may not occur at all. In this class, we will learn how diet plays a role in fertility for both men and women. We discuss specific actions to get into better hormonal balance and tackle infertility.

July 9 — Curing Cramps & Premenstrual Syndrome — Many people face conditions related to hormonal imbalance, including menstrual cramps, PMS, and endometriosis. In this class, we see how our food choices affect these conditions.

July 16 — Tackling Hormone-Related Cancers — Certain cancers are significantly affected by hormones: breast, uterine, and ovarian cancer in women and prostate and testicular cancer in men. We can help regulate our hormones with the foods we eat. This class focuses on low-fat, high-fiber foods to reduce cancer risk and help enhance survival for those who have been diagnosed.

July 23 — Reversing Polycystic Ovary Disease — Polycystic Ovary Disease (PCOS) is caused by a slight excess of androgens. These extra hormones can cause irregular periods, skin changes, polycystic ovaries, and infertility. They can also change body fat patterns and reduce insulin sensitivity. This leads to rising blood sugars and sometimes diabetes. We’ll review the causes and symptoms of PCOS and diabetes and show how to combat them with healthful food choices.

July 30 — Tackling Menopause — This class will focus on menopause as a natural part of life. We’ll review how to minimize or even avoid hot flashes, unpredictable emotions, changes in sexual function, and memory fog.

August 6 — Curing Erectile Dysfunction and Saving Your Life — A majority of time, erectile dysfunction (ED) is an indication of artery disease. The same narrowing of the arteries to the male genitalia that results in impotence also affects arteries to the heart, brain, and rest of the body. We’ll discuss how food choices often beat the little blue pill for ED, in a revelation that may save your life, or the person you love!

August 13 — A Healthy Thyroid — The thyroid gland regulates our body’s use of energy. If it is not producing enough hormone, you will feel sluggish. Too much hormone and you feel revved up with a rapid heart rate and other symptoms. This class will set you on the right foot for following a healthful diet to support your thyroid if you have a diagnosed thyroid disorder and reducing your risk of developing one.

August 20 — Foods and Mood — Evidence suggests that foods can help conquer moodiness and more serious problems such as anxiety and depression. Inflammatory foods can trigger chemical changes in our gut and brain and lead to stress and effect mood. We’ll discuss mood-boosting foods and create delicious meals to support your mind and body.

August 27 — Avoiding Environmental Chemicals — We’ve heard about issues with BPA, phthalates, pesticides and more, but how can you keep your family safe from them? This class reviews common chemical exposures and how to avoid them. We’ll have cooking demonstrations and recipes for foods that avoid environmental chemicals.

Cost: Individual classes are $25 or get a discount by signing up for the whole series, $180. Classes held online via Zoom. Register for one, two, or all the classes!
