Presented by Queen of the Valley Hospital and Healing Journeys
There is wide agreement that one of the most important things we can do to support and promote our own health is to give our bodies the nutrients it needs. There are many theories of nutrition out there, and we need to know what science has discovered that will aid in recovery and prevent recurrence. Jeanne Wallace is the expert on evidence-based nutritional and botanical support for wellness.
We also need to know how to translate that science into the meals that come out of our kitchens. Rebecca Katz is re-defining the concept of health-supportive cuisine in a way that’s proving deliciously irresistible to patients and professionals alike. Using equal parts warm kitchen-table wisdom and credible scientific knowledge, Rebecca has helped thousands of people improve their health as they battle chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and obesity. She will provide the practical help with healthy eating that you have asked for.

My approach to health supportive foods is that they must taste great—i.e., be flavor driven—in order to be nourishing and healing. Put another way, it’s the power of “yum” that reinforces the desire to eat well. ~Rebecca Katz~
