Nutrition what is it? For decades research has limited the concept of nutrition to macro and micronutrients made up of chemical components. Food became viewed as a chemical reservoir versus an ingredient of nourishment for humanity. In the modern reductionist view, a calorie is a calorie. Countless agricultural practices and industrially manufactured foods are viewed as beneficial nourishment equal to or better than traditional foods and growing and cooking methods.

Nourishment has many ingredients;  often likened to the layers of an onion; each protects and supports the next and is made up of many elements. The holistic view of nourishment isn’t just about the food ingested — it is also about the growing body of research supporting the nourishment gained from nature, culture, tradition, light, sound, and color.

This presentation will guide participants through current research on nourishment for a “ lifestyle,” encompassing food, sustainability, and mindfulness, instead of a narrow view of chemicals and calories.
