Food as Medicine - October 18th - Fight with your Fork! Cancer Prevention and Care

65.00

Wednesday, October 18th - Fight with your Fork! Cancer Prevention and Care

6:30pm - Upstairs in the Cookshop at 3701 Travis St.

It is estimated that up to 80% of cancer patients undergoing treatment are malnourished, which affects outcomes and treatment tolerance. Providing the body with optimal nutritional support allows the healthy cells to withstand and quickly recover from treatment while limiting side effects.

We all have potential cancerous cells in our bodies and it’s our lifestyle that either provokes or inhibits cancer growth. Diet has an equal impact on both ends of the spectrum--working to either drive expression of cancer cells or to repress tumor activity. Food-as-medicine can promote the elimination of toxins and foods that fuel cancer cells while providing nutrient-dense foods to fight cancer and support your body.

Join Integrative Dietitian Ali Miller, RD, LD, CDE of Naturally Nourished as she navigates a cancer fighting menu by Chef Monica Pope. You’ll learn about the process and contributors to cancer as well as foods that provoke or prevent lifestyle support to reset your system for balance, and medicinal foods that can be included in your daily diet.

Event includes lecture, educational materials, and dinner at $65/person. This event is BYOB.

*Menu is comprised of gluten-free and low glycemic courses featuring grass-fed or wild proteins, local produce, and food-as-medicine focus. We can work to omit some ingredients but as this is a lecture, cooking demo/tasting, specialty orders will not be able to be accommodated.
