Eat Naked Now with Chef James Barry and Nutritionist Margaret Floyd
Thursday, June 13th
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Whole Foods Market, 3rd & Fairfax, Free

Eating naked will give your body everything it needs to truly thrive.

Naked food is:

  • Fresh, local, seasonal. The fresher the food, the more nutrient-dense it is.
  • Organic. Grown without toxic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers.
  • Grown or raised in harmony with our natural world, honoring the environment, animals, farmers, local economies, and our health. This is food you can feel good about.
  • Whole, unrefined, and unpackaged. As soon as food is modified, its nutritional value is compromised.
  • Prepared properly, so that the food’s nutritional value is preserved, even enhanced.
  • Homemade. You’re in control.
  • Mighty tasty. Fresh food tastes better. Period.

And eating naked isn’t just about your food. It’s a lifestyle.

:: It’s about taking off the extras and living a richer, simpler life.

:: It’s about authenticity, peeling back the layers to reveal your true self.

:: It’s about removing the barriers we create between us and the world around us, living in harmony with our environment, our communities, our families, our selves.
