To Your Health with Dr. B - Taming the Season of Indulgence
Monday, October 20th
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Salud Cooking School, inside Whole Foods Market Avalon, Free

Cooler weather and the string of holidays from Halloween through New Year's Eve create a whole new set of challenges for those of us who are committed to a healthy lifestyle.  Fewer hours of sunlight mixed with increased consumption of fat, sugar and alcohol can also leave us feeling sluggish and bloated.  Join us for an evening with "Dr. B" as we explore ways to avoid the holiday health slump. Big sweaters should be a fashion choice, not a necessity!      Taming the Season of Indulgence  is the first in a series of monthly programs led by Dr. Bradley Bongiovanni, who is a naturopathic physician practicing in Alpharetta, and an official partner of Whole Foods Market Avalon.  Programs are free, but pre-registration is requested.  Please register at the Customer Service Desk.
