Why Food Should Be Your First Medicine

Is fat good or bad? What's safe to eat? How do you develop a food plan that is easy to implement? Explore answers to these questions with Eileen Immerman, back by popular demand after the sold-out November class. Eileen is a former critical care RN and currently a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach.

In 2005 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and during the next several years she realized she also had three separate autoimmune disorders. Conventional medicine wasn't helpful. She found an answer to WHY she was so sick. Hear her amazing story of fighting her way back to wellness as she shares what she learned about the power of food.

This fun, informative talk will include a demonstration on how spices can take a dish from bland to fabulous with a hands-on group creation. You’ll learn how to make a simple, healthy salad dressing for just pennies. Kristen and Michelle from Forage will talk about how to stock a pantry and refrigerator with some essential ingredients that will help you feel more confident and less stressed or bored with daily meal preparation. Finally, you'll enjoy a vegetarian, gluten and dairy-free meal of soup and salad. Recipes will be provided to take home, along with handouts on how to make meal plans and how to take steps towards creating a family food plan that supports wellness and prevents disease. Wine and beer will be available for purchase by the glass. Eileen coaches clients in the Chippewa Valley who are interested in regaining or maintaining wellness and blogs about her journey and wellness at http://time2thrive.com/, on Twitter and Facebook.
