Nutrition & Traditional Foods Workshops
Nutrition and traditional foods workshops, cooking demonstrations, and complete curricula can be an invaluable addition to:
- Non-profit organizations working with health and food systems
- Train-the-trainer programs
Nutrition Workshops are focused on practical information community members can utilize when making food choices, and include topics such as: reading food labels, lactose-free eating, making easy snacks, working with food allergies, and media literacy.
Traditional Foods Workshops are based on the traditional Mesoamerican diet. Traditional foods are an offering whose virtues serve as medicine to heal the modern crisis in public health nutrition and ensure improved health for future generations. Topics include food history, culture, and nutritional benefits of traditional ingredients.
