Navigating Fats: Making Sense of it All.

Have you heard the good news? Fats are GOOD. In fact, fats are NECESSARY and INTEGRAL to optimal health.

In this hour presentation, followed by a Q&A, Holistic Nutrition Practitioner and local foodie Luka Symons will be helping you navigate through the information on Why Fats are Good, which ones to choose, which ones to omit from your diet and recommendations on how to include the good guys in your every day meal plan.

From heart health to immune health to hormonal balance and the all-important brain health, including healthy fats is a quintessential component to supporting our bodies for the work they do every day. In traditional cultures, fat was an essential daily component of the diet, and with good reason.

We will look at saturated, unsaturated, cholesterol and heat tolerance. We'll look at which fats to use where in your cooking as well. Let's demystify! And make it all delicious.

This is a hands-on class: everyone will prepare their own batch of creme fraiche to take home. This is a full fat lactose-free dairy delight, sure to tempt your palate.
