With Laura Pole and Ruth Fehr
- Saturday, October 27, 10am-3pm
Join two culinary and nutrition experts and learn how to incorporate nourishing foods for healing and prevention of cancer. Most of the workshop will be dedicated to hands-on cooking. You will learn how to make delicious and economical recipes that can be easily re-created at home.
In addition to cooking, participants will also learn:
- The critical role food choices play in helping heal from cancer, which foods discourage cancer growth, and which foods promote it
- Practical tools and information on how to choose your food
- Food solutions to common problems patients experience during cancer treatment, such as taste changes, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, and others

This workshop is made possible thanks to the generosity of The Palette Fund, a non profit organization dedicated to providing nutrition and culinary services to people touched by cancer.
