Healthy Habits: Adaptogenic Herbs and Superfoods
18 August, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Stress-busting herbs! Immune-boosting superfoods! Learn how to include these and more into your daily life. Jessica Weston, chef owner of Superfresh! Organic Café in Brattleboro, VT, and author of Healing Tonics, Juices, & Smoothies: 100+ Elixirs to Nurture Body and Soul, will show you how. She was recently named one of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s 30 Under 30 Health and Wellness Leaders of 2017. With a BA in medical anthropology from Ithaca College and as a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), she’s spent her career exploring the broad subject of food as medicine with Mayan healers in Belize, on organic farms, and with herbalists, shamanic practitioners, and more. Her personal journey to health, navigating a series of food intolerances as well as what made her feel most vibrant, led her to a non-GMO, plant-based diet free of soy, gluten, dairy, eggs, and meat. Recognizing that everyone has their own path to explore, her goal is simply to share her experiences and knowledge by creating delicious, approachable cuisine with the understanding that no two beings are alike.
