This 8-week course allows you to take control of your health. Culinary medicine is a newly defined field based on decades of high-level evidence suggesting that the food with which we nourish our bodies is more important for maintaining health and preventing disease than many modern-day medical treatments and interventions. Culinary medicine does not replace proper medical care, but rather gives you the skills to complement the goals you and your health care provider have for your current and long-term health. This culinary medicine course is based off of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine’s eating pattern recommendation – a pattern that is predominantly whole food and plant-based.
