Sunday 3rd November  “Let Food be your Medicine” The importance of fruit and vegetables in the diet.

Expensive marketing campaigns and a bombardment of ‘health products’ can leave many confused, out of pocket and making poor decisions about their diet.  The common fruits and vegetables receive very little attention when it comes to advertising and promotion. However, science is discovering that these plant foods are indeed more than we give them credit for when it comes to preventing  and healing metabolic or lifestyle diseases. Plants have been shown to reduce the risk of lifestyle disease,  slow down the aging process, improve mental health, and in many case assist in the body’s healing processes. This talk, presented by the health team will discuss reasons why eating more fruit and vegetables may just be one of the best health decisions an individual can make for the new year ahead.
