Happy Foods, Saturday April 4th

Replace the processed, empty calories, nutrient sterile foods of most modern diets with real whole foods that provide richer taste, a fuller complement of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

Your body will love you as you experience natural tastes, increased feelings of satisfaction, pleasure, reduced hunger (as real food increases satiety) and enjoy happier moods and increased immunity by choosing mood and immunity enhancing foods.

Going beyond the foods to use in your cooking learn to craft meals that meet you body’s constitutional requirements, preparation and cooking to preserve nutrients and even increase nutrient density, and provide them in tasty, exciting ways to create Happy foods that do us well, satisfy hunger, and increase pleasure in eating.

To create Happy foods that do us well, satisfy hunger, and increase true pleasure in eating we must also consider: how we eat, how it is prepared, our emotional state (preparer, eater, and company) and when possible increase our conscious involvement to impact our experience and health.

Learn more by joining us for this exciting seminar (see the flyer next page and read the article on Happy Foods on this month’s Blog at the website). Sign-up now, call Jim at 071-959-0786 or email.
