INTRODUCTION TO THE FOOD FOR LIFE "HOW FOODS FIGHT CANCER" NUTRITION AND COOKING CLASS
The Food for Life Nutrition and Cooking Class Series for Cancer Prevention and Survival covers a variety of cancer-related nutrition topics and demonstrates how to prepare several meals loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals, high-fiber and low-fat foods, and healthy dairy alternatives.
In this introductory nutrition and cooking class you will learn that certain diet patterns seem to have a major effect in helping people diagnosed with cancer to live longer, healthier lives. Overall, scientists estimate that about a third of the 13 most common cancers in the UK could be prevented through improved diet, physical activity and body weight according to the the World Cancer Research Fund. In this class, you will learn about the right food choices that can help reduce the risk of developing cancer as well as overcome the disease after it has been diagnosed.
Food for Life instructor Farrah Rainfly will take you through a Nutritional lecture (Projected video with Dr. Neal Barnard - President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) and then show you how to apply the healthful techniques in a cooking demonstration.
About the programme: The Food for Life programme is a cost effective community-based public intervention nutrition education programme of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). It is an evidence based innovative approach to a medical challenge. It aims first to prevent disease by educating participants how to cook for health. When a disease has been diagnosed, it works for improving survival. Designed by physicians, nutrition experts, and registered dieticians, each of our curricula includes a nutritional lecture about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote health, weight loss and fight disease. Participants are then shown how to translate this complex scientific nutrition information into affordable and nutritious dishes that can be recreated easily at home all within a supportive fun group setting.
I am a vegan blogger and compassionate clothing line founder at jadegreenvegan.com. I have 4 beautiful, crazy dogs and as a big animal lover have been vegan for around 2 and a half years. During that time I've travelled to lots of beautiful places and learnt a lot along the way, so would like to share my experience to help make travelling as a vegan as fun, easy & stress-free as possible for everyone!
