Culinary Immersion Series
In this culinary immersion series, we will explore the role of what we eat in recovery and treatment of symptoms associated with women’s cancers. The hands-on workshops taught by Paula Montagna, MS, RD, CDN will introduce you to topics such as local food and seasonality, self care, meal prep, mindful eating, and tailoring diet to individual needs. We take a Food as Medicine approach, exploring how what we eat impacts overall health and can empower us to feel our best. Food sourcing takes center stage and we focus on whole and minimally processed foods, honoring the fact that all individuals have unique nutritional needs. Our menu will feature locally sourced produce when possible.
Workshops take place from 5:30-7:30 PM on Wednesdays October 2, 9 & 16. They will be held at South Fork Kitchens by East End Food Institute, inside the Student Center at Stony Brook Southampton University. Participants can register for individual sessions or for the three-part series at a discount.
The CWC has created and sustains a supportive network in our community for women affected by breast, ovarian, and uterine cancers. The CWC focuses on education, early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and improved quality of life.
