In this class you will learn strategies for maintaining memory and improving brain function. Plant-based foods are beneficial to the brain and may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. A decline in brain health is not an inevitable part of aging. But how we eat and live can help us protect our memory and stay sharp into old age. Research shows that saturated and trans fats found in dairy products, meats, pastries, and fried foods can increase the risk for cognitive decline. Whereas, eating a plant-based diet helps protect brain health. Berries and foods rich in vitamin E, including nuts, seeds, leafy greens, and whole grains are especially beneficial.
The class features a video, discussion, and the opportunity to see a cooking demonstration of plant-based dishes. Susannah has been a licensed Food for Life Instructor for 8 years. She is passionate about plant-based education, cooking and eating.
