**Sunday Aug 18 is Session 1 of this series. Session 2 is Sunday Aug 25.**
Laurie Courage is a Certified Food For Life Educator with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and founder of Encouraging Greens Inc. She offers group nutrition/cooking classes that help people on the brink of a health crisis to restore their health and enjoy an energetic life for years to come by helping them understand what and how to eat.
Laurie writes, "Research has shown that certain diet patterns have a major effect in helping people diagnosed with cancer to live longer, healthier lives. Numerous studies have shown that a diet built from plant foods offers the most cancer fighting protection of any diet plan. Reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research shows that as much as 50 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet.
The PCRM Food for Life: Foods That Fight Cancer Program offers a unique opportunity to:
- Acquire knowledge about the link between diet and cancer
- Experience the benefits of plant-based nutrition
- Learn the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health
In this 2-session program (Aug 18 & 25), attendees learn all of this while enjoying cooking demonstrations, tasting delicious, healthful dishes and taking home useful class materials and recipes, all in a supportive group setting. The program covers the material from 4 weekly classes in a convenient 2-day combo class format, including all of the nutrition education and most of the recipes (10) from the series taught over 2 days, Sunday August 18th and August 25th, from 1-4pm.
The program includes: Introduction to Foods that Fight Cancer, Fueling up on Low-Fat, High-Fiber Foods, Discovering Dairy and Meat Alternatives and Cancer Fighting Compounds and Healthy Weight Control.
