Food Glorious Food: The Practices and Pleasures of Eating Sustainably

Minx Boren

Course Description

The focus of this class is to encourage participants to reconnect with the pleasures and purposes of eating wisely and well. Topics to be discussed include the roots and shoots of our attitude toward food over time. What our five senses and common sense can tell us. Our current love/hate relationship with food. Habits before diets, moving beyond the diet conundrum that keeps us stuck and frustrated. Celebrate… and give thanks! Experience the clarity and power that arise when we take time to consider the big picture along with the stories we tell ourselves about what we eat and why. Handouts and visuals will be used. Coach Minx grew up in the restaurant business in NYC and has been exploring and presenting the joys and challenges of eating well for the past 45 years. She taught both cooking and nutrition at Natural Gourmet in NYC and was a major contributor to a book by that same name. Space is limited.
