Sonoma Valley Hospital Hosts Ceres Healthy Eating ClassesMay 11, 2018
Sonoma Valley Hospital will host two classes this summer that are part of Ceres Community Project’s Nutrition Education Program, each offering information, motivation, and inspiration to those seeking to make positive changes to their diet and lifestyle.
The first to be offered is “Healing Food Basics” on Wednesday, June 20, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm and will be led by Thais Harris NC, Ceres Nutrition Education Program Manager. This is an introductory class that helps participants make the connection between good health and the food and lifestyle factors that influence it, offering an overview of Ceres’ nutrient-rich approach to healthy eating. Topics include: Whole food nutrition basics, shopping strategies, foods to add and to avoid, eating well on a budget, and healthy lifestyle choices.
The second class to be offered at the Hospital and led by Ceres is “Lowering Inflammation and Managing Sugar” on Wednesday, August 15, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This course will focus on the health impacts of sugar consumption and how to manage blood sugar without feeling deprived. This class involves a hands-on session allowing participants to make a healthy dish together.
Cost for each class is based on a sliding scale of $10-$35, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
