Nutrition and Cooking

Nutrition and CookingWhat we eat and how we eat can have profound effect on our health and well-being; food is more than sustenance, it is information. We know that the world of nutrition can be confusing and overwhelming. Let our Nutrition and Wellness Educators help you demystify the world of food with one of our educational nutrition classes; peruse our online resource section for local farms and healthy restaurants; and/or browse our in-house library for informational and recipe books specific to managing cancer.

All of our classes and resources are designed to address the questions and needs of people living with cancer. Please note that every individual’s needs are unique – we are all blessed with bio-individuality. Therefore, we do NOT prescribe or endorse any specific diet.
