FAME: Exploring Natural and Artificial Sweeteners

FAME: Exploring Natural and Artificial Sweeteners


Join FAME Educators Johanna Glaser and Kelly McLauchlan Stone for another Food As Medicine Everyday session.

We'll be reviewing the negative consequences of too much-added sugar in our diets and introduce the concept of naturally occurring versus added sugars. We'll discuss the American Heart Association's recommendations for daily added sugars and work hands-on to spot the culprits on food labels.

Key things you'll learn:

  • How to identify hidden sugars in your food

  • How your body processes natural versus artificial sweeteners

  • Areas in our eating where we can easily cut the added sugars

Tentative Menu*: Baked Salmon Cakes & Coconut Berry Bliss
*Recipes and menu subject to change based on seasonal availability of produce.

Class will include lecture, discussion, demo, some hands-on cooking and samples.

FAME can serve those looking for an introduction to cooking and eating whole foods and those looking for a deeper understanding of the health benefits of a whole foods-based diet. Regardless of age, cooking experience, or health status, you and your entire family will benefit from learning healthy cooking skills and nutritional know-how. Each workshop will welcome up to 16 participants, and kids aged 10 and up are welcome to attend.

CLASS DATE: 11/20/19

6:00 - 7:30pm
