Event Details

Course Description

Learn to improve your diet and lifestyle to prevent cognitive decline. The class will provide a welcome beverage, a nutrition talk, a chef demo and hands-on cooking. The nutrition presentation will cover the underlying causes of cognitive decline, and offer suggestions on nutrients, foods and lifestyle practices that support brain health.

Working in small groups, and from a master template recipe which Chef Nicole will provide, students will create a brain builder bowl, selecting ingredient options among various brain-supportive food categories: vegetables, grains, plant proteins, nuts & seeds, fermented foods, spices & herbs. The class will enjoy the food prepared, as well as discuss ingredients selection, food taste, texture, and palatability.
