Vegan Kickstart Your Health: Eating for Your and Your Microbes!
With Nutrition Consultant Sandi Rechenmacher News Flash: The world is not flat; the sun does not go around the Earth; and we are more than merely a conglomeration of mammalian cells! Current science has uncovered trillions of additional microbial cells that live on and in us. This newly discovered ‘organ,’ the Human Microbiome, has major influences on our metabolism, body weight, propensity to illness, immune system, appetite, mood, and more. Ok, OK...How then can we increase the good bacteria in our body and give our microbiome a healthy boost? Sandi Rechenmacher, local Nutritional Consultant, presents a PCRM* Food for Life evidence-based Kickstart class: Eating for You & Your Microbes, to answers these questions and more. This dynamic 'Info-Dining' class features whole food, plant-based nutrition science, live cooking demo & samplings. YUMMERS!!! Attendees will receive recipes, handouts/resources to support their next healthy steps on their healing journey.
