Celebrate heart month by learning about foods that can protect your heart and decrease your risk of heart disease. The workshop will cover a variety of examples of heart-healthy foods that can be incorporated into meals, snacks and even desserts.

March 13: Immune-Boosting Nutrition 

This class will cover nutrition strategies to promote a healthy immune system. In addition to learning about natural remedies to protect the body against sicknesses like the flu and common cold, the class will look into which foods and beverages to eat more of (and what to avoid) when one starts to feel under the weather.
