Healthy, Happy & Wise: Food Choice

Published: April 01, 2021

Research increasingly indicates that the foods we eat have a major influence on our health and well-being. Fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and good fats are touted for their positive effects and natural benefits. But do we know all we need to know about how they protect and sustain us?

To learn more about the details, join us for a virtual presentation on Zoom with certified personal trainer Dr. George Place. He’ll help us identify ways to look after our long-term physical health through smart strategies. For example, he’ll teach us to choose foods that provide energy, boost our immune response, and help us lose unwanted pounds. Just as importantly, he’ll also introduce foods that can lead to chronic disease and increased inflammation, giving us guidelines to avoid those pitfalls.
