The Mindful Kitchen 2: Exploring Long Living Cultures

Monday, March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

There are regions of the world where people live well into their 90’s and even into the 100’s: Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California. When studied, these people share common habits like regular physical activity, purposeful living, low stress, food and wine in moderation, plant focused diet, active social lives and spirituality. In this 3-part series, we will explore each culture through short presentation on lifestyle and behaviors and a simple cooking demonstration. This group is limited to 15 participants.

Presented by: Deborah Kronenberger, MA, LCPC; Lori Bumbaco, MS, RDN, CSO, LDN, Oncology Dietitian
