There's much wisdom in the saying, "You are what you eat." Knowing how food works with your body (or doesn't work) makes it easier to understand what to eat and why. Find out details at our first nutrition class: "How Your Body Really Works: Why Eat This" on Tuesday, June 9, from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Community Room at Willamette Medical Center, 2401 River Road. The nutrition class is part of a series of classes designed by Natural Grocers and taught by Yaakov Levine, Nutrition Therapy Practitioner and Natural Grocers Health Coach. This class will be the first of quarterly nutrition classes we will schedule in the Community Room each season. The summer class schedule will be announced in the summer e-newsletter.
Health care practitioners agree that good health starts with a good diet. What you put in your body can influence whether or not you'll develop heart disease, type-2 diabetes, cancer and a host of other health problems. Every meal is an opportunity to improve your health, but most people don't realize just how simple healthy eating can be. Once you understand that the foundation for good health is dependent on nutrition, and that you can get most nutritional value from your diet by consuming whole, natural foods, you can build the groundwork to support a healthy and vibrant life. It's simpler, less time-consuming and tastier than you might think.
