Feeding Yourself After 50
1 sessions, 2 hours
Folks over fifty have unique nutritional requirements: we need more of certain nutrients, even as we’re facing dwindling appetites, decreased activity levels, and the challenge of cooking for one or two. It’s imperative to pack as much nutrition into our meals as possible. Come find out which foods give you the biggest nutritional bang for your buck, why freshness and soil health matter, why “grass time” makes for superior animal products, where to find this nutrient-dense bounty, how to buy it for less, and how to fit cooking into a busy lifestyle.
