Immune Boosting Foods – Plant-Based Nutrition and Cooking Class

April 24, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

Diets rich in vegetables and fruits boost immunity and double the natural killer cell activity to destroy cancer cells.

Antioxidants which are mainly found in fruits and vegetables are critically important to halt free-radical damage and bolster immunity. This class will explore foods that are rich in protective compounds and immune-boosting nutrients such as beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamin C, and zinc. Studies have demonstrated the ability of diets rich in vegetables and fruits to boost immunity. Based on scientific research, those eating a plant-based diet (in this case vegetarians) have approximately double the natural killer cell activity (natural killer cells engulf and destroy cancer cells) compared to non-vegetarians. Learn how to prepare a colorful, scrumptious, immune-boosting meal.

In this class, attendees learn about nutrition while asking questions and enjoying cooking demonstrations, all in a supportive group setting.

Recipes and handouts will be provided a few days prior to class.

Pre-registration is required at least 24 hours in advance.

Early Bird and Buddy Discounts are available.


What is the exact address for the class?

The class will be held online via zoom originating from Port Washington NY.
