« back to classes page

We all want to stay mentally sharp as we age! Lifestyle factors influence our brain health and what we eat plays a significant role in preventing cognitive decline. Research shows that plant-based foods, loaded with beneficial phytonutrients, may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative diseases. Learn what foods help us protect our memory and nervous system, and how a brain-healthy diet also helps lower your risk of stroke, heart disease, and other chronic diseases. Explore how common cookware and supplements may expose you to brain-damaging toxins. You’ll also hear what the latest research says about specific vitamins and nutrients, as well as what other lifestyle factors can make a difference in your cognitive performance. Best of all, Susan will demonstrate how to cook some delicious plant-based dishes that you’ll get to sample, and recipes and resources you’ll take home to support your brain’s health!
