For our March get together, we have arranged a "Food for Life" class by the Cancer Project! Diet plays a HUGE role in cancer prevention and survival and you will learn all sorts of great things to help make every member of your family as healthy as they can be. This class is an introduction to whole foods and how foods fight cancer. Here's a brief description with a little more detail:

"Certain diet patterns seem to have a major effect in helping people diagnosed with many different diseases, including cancer, to live longer, healthier lives. The National Cancer Institute research shows that as much as 50 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet. Obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer are all on the rise in this country. In this class you will learn about the right food choices that can help with weight loss, reduce the risk of developing disease, as well as overcome the disease after it has been diagnosed. You will sample delicious recipes and learn all about the power of whole foods.

Here's what's on the menu: Green Goodness Smoothie, Sensational Salad, Penne with Kale, Tomatoes, and Olives, and Chocolate Mousse."

When: Tuesday, March 27th from 6-8pm
Where: Orson Gygi Company - 3500 S 300 E Salt Lake City
