This course is not only about nutrition, it is also about self-awareness and self-discovery for a holistic healthy lifestyle. Your body and mind can either work in harmony to produce well-balanced mental and physical health, or work against each other, producing mental and physical inflammation and dis-ease. We are what we eat, drink, think, and do. Small changes can profoundly increase the quality of your life. You'll learn how to make these changes based upon self-reflective in-class and take-home exercises that will allow you to discover what eating habits and thought patterns are keeping you stuck in a less than healthy lifestyle. You'll also have some "aha" moments when we delve into discovering what your particular obstacle is, and strategies to overcome it. We will cover the seemingly basic concept of blood sugar control - why it is the foundation for a healthy BodyMind. Learn how to get off the blood sugar roller-coaster and feel fabulous. We'll discuss processed versus whole foods - a seemingly simple distinction that has gotten incredibly confusing. You will learn what it truly means to eat yourself well thereby decreasing inflammation and dis-ease. We'll explore how and why such a simple human need for nourishment has gotten so confusing.
