PDX Potluck: Food Friends, Food Enemies

September 17 (5:00 - 8:00 PM)

Have you ever been confused by conflicting advice on what to eat? It's easy to end up avoiding beneficial foods, while filling your plate with foods that are harmful. How can you get the facts about nutrition so that you make the best choices?

This presentation will transform your understanding of what to eat and what to steer clear of, and most importantly, why. Foods contain thousands of substances that impact your body. What specific substances in foods make them healthy, and which make them dangerous? Just looking at sources of calories - fats, proteins, and carbohydrates - is too simplistic. You'll learn a better approach.
