How food can support your grief process

Presenter: Dana Jackson Kruse

As a young widow, the kitchen was the place where Dana was best able to express her feelings. Cooking became her go-to coping tool. Recipe by recipe, she made her way through the sudden death of her husband and found both solace and inspiration along the way. Eventually Dana’s love for cooking led to a desire to learn all she could about the benefits of better nutrition and healthy food choices.

This workshop will help incorporate healthy whole foods into your everyday life.  Dana believes nutrition is the key to help reduce stress, illness, and inflammation, increase energy, and maintain an even balance. The right nutrition program can be the best preventative medicine, especially for those struggling through the death of their person. Join Dana to discuss how even small shifts in food choices can help to balance your emotional, mental and physical self – leaving you with more energy as you recreate your life bite by bite.
