You are what you eat, yes? The idea is in the air and in the research, part of the cultural zeitgeist. (If you want to be healthy, live disease-free, manage symptoms, and stay sharp, the fuel you put into your body matters.) The importance of food choices is top of mind for the Tampa Bay Timebank; we’re hosting a nutrition class the first Thursday of every month at Tampa’s Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library, 4:30 to 6:30 PM.
The invaluable Nutrition and Wellness class is taught by member Heather Murray, RN and Licensed Massage Therapist who’s also a Certified Level 1 practitioner in Food Healing.
Every first Thursday Heather shares helpful resources like one of her go-to books, Conquering Any Disease, The Ultimate High-Phytochemical Food-Healing System by Jeff Primack, complete with real-life case studies of healing to inspire behavioral shifts and a strong dose of hope. Members receive timebank credits for attending. Got questions? Want the low-down on phytochemicals? Come to class! Reach Heather or TBT Coordinator Rita Cobbs at 608.335.2382.
