Food Science Educational Group 

(8 week series: Wednesdays APRIL 4th - MAY 30th 2018)
In our day-to-day lives we are bombarded with many messages about "diets" "good foods" "bad foods" "organic" "natural" "calories" and "body ideals", that when it's all said and done, it appears there's nothing left. Often times this leaves us with frustration, guilt or even shame around our eating experiences. It's hard to siphon through and decide what messages are helpful and what is doing more harm than good.
This group series is designed to, clear out marketing jumble. return to science and reconnect with your body.
During our six weeks together, we will have interactive groups based on how our bodies need and receive food for nourishment.
