Food as Medicine Everyday series to start
The National University of Natural Medicine will present its Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) class series Sept. 18 through Dec. 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Charlee's Kitchen, 2220 SW First Ave. in Portland. The FAME series is a series of weekly workshops which demonstrate simple techniques for selecting and cooking tasty, nutritious whole foods and teach how these foods can improve health and fitness. Naturopathic physicians and nutritionists share their in-depth knowledge around chronic disease, wellness and nutrition. Regardless of age, cooking experience or health status, participants will benefit from learning healthy cooking skills and nutritional know-how. Each workshop can accommodate 15-20 people; both children and adults are welcome.
Participants receive a copy of "The Food as Medicine Everyday, Reclaim your Health with Whole Foods" book, written by Dr. Julie Briley and Dr. Courtney Jackson, a whole food meal each week and free whole grains and legumes from Bob's Red Mill each week.
Registration is $299 for individuals and $499 for families (2 participants) before Aug. 31. Fees increase to $349 for individuals and $599 for families after that date. Register online at foodasmedicineinstitute.com.
