Restore Your Digestion & Restore Your Health with the Anti-Inflammatory Diet
Tuesday, March 25th
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Community Room, Free

There is so much more to digestion than our gastrointestinal system. Our digestion determines our ability to get nutrients out of our food; our ability to create neurotransmitters that fuel our brain and stabilize our emotional and mental health; our ability to properly utilize proteins, fats and carbs so that we have stable blood sugar; and our ability to create hormones in our body that influence our sex life, our energy levels and our ability to respond to stress. When our digestion is disturbed, every process in our body is disturbed. And inflammation is what perturbs our digestive health most. Inflammation in our gastrointestinal tract results in inflammation in our brain, our joints and our life; as well as for some people, results in diarrhea, constipation, alternating diarrhea and constipation, cramping, gnarly gas and bloating. Inflammation also upregulates our immune system and in cases of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and other autoimmune disorders, the body is triggered to assault its own tissues. Everyone’s immune system triggers can be different. In this workshop, we will discuss those foods that are inflammatory for everyone, those foods that are anti-inflammatory for most people and those foods that are common immune triggers individually.  Space is limited and you must RSVP to receive your $5 gift card!  Call 720.941.4100 to snag a spot!

Starting Solid Foods with the Mama'Hood
Thursday, March 27th

Starting solids is good, messy, healthy fun! The science and art of starting solids through baby led weaning is very compelling. When babies are allowed to feed themselves they are much better able to self regulate and explore foods in a safe manner. The very first food, breastmilk, teaches a baby about the flavors of foods the family eats. Did you know that cultures that eat spicy foods have mothers with spicy tasting breastmilk? So why not introduce your child directly to the culture of food that exists in your own family? 

When babies are not forced to eat, they honor their own satiety and have less risk of over-eating later in life. By introducing whole and healthy foods to your child, skipping purees, you begin to lay a foundation for a lifelong positive relationship to food! By playing with foods, babies can explore texture, volume and distance. Join us in exploring this ancient introduction to first foods.  Every attendee will take home a $5 gift card, but you must RSVP by calling 720.941.4100
