    In this class series, we examine the critical connection between diet and the risk of developing various forms of cancer. With a focus on low-fat plant-based nutrition, you’ll develop an understanding of specific foods and nutrients that either promote or discourage cancer development. Each class features a cooking demonstration of delicious, health-promoting dishes and food samples, along with handouts of easy and affordable recipes you can prepare at home. The intended audience for this series includes cancer survivors and their family and friends as well as individuals looking to prevent cancer. Classes are not meant for individuals currently undergoing cancer treatment. Featured class topics include: how foods fight cancer, cancer-fighting compounds and immune-boosting foods, fueling up on low-fat foods, favoring fiber, discovering dairy alternatives, replacing meat, and maintaining a healthy weight.
