Session #1: The Benefits of Eating More Raw Foods
Diet is a hard thing to change. Just choosing a new diet is a major decision. We will discuss the criteria for deciding which diet is right for you, but we will spend most of our time exploring and sampling (yum!) some super foods that will immediately invigorate your existing diet. You don’t need to adopt an all raw, or all organic diet, but increasing the percentage of living foods in your diet and making better food choices in general will measurably impact your health and longevity.

Session #2: Kitchen Gardening
Sproutman is, of course, known for his philosophy of year-round gardening. The ultimate in local agriculture. Come and experience fresh organic greens in the middle of the Winter! Learn why these indoor plants are actually functional foods — potent and therapeutic like medicinal herbs. But they are also delicious, organic, fresh and easier to grow than you think. No soil. No green thumb required. Lots of samples.

Session #3: Digestion
What we eat doesn’t necessarily make it into our cells and tissues. Digestion should really be about assimilation — enriching our bloodstream with healing compounds and nutrients. Unfortunately, most of the time, it’s just about plumbing. Find out the five most important things you can do to improve your digestion and literally turn your health around. Stop throwing food dollars down the drain and start getting more out of what you eat.

Session #4: Which Vitamins? Which Supplements?
Everybody takes them, but which ones do we need? How much? How often? Is there a difference between brands? Isn’t a good diet good enough? We all take them and we spend a lot of money on them. Join us as we address these questions and come up with a strategy for navigating through the vitamin jungle. Learn which are the best supplements for general maintenance and which ones everybody should take.
