Food for Life Program Coming to St. Mary's Wellness Center

Join Food for Life Instructor Susannah Dickman to discover which foods are optimal for weight management, learn about various health topics including blood pressure and digestion, and get empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In the class, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive group setting. Participants will be given all recipes made in class.

The 5-week program will be held every Thursday from February 9 – March 9 from 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Epworth Crossing Wellness Center. Cost is $25 per class or $115 for all 5 classes paid in advance. Pre-registration is required by Tuesday, February 7, and can be completed by calling 812-485-5725

In a public health climate where more than one-third of adults in the U.S. are obese and millions have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been. The program helps people adopt a plant-based diet to reach their health goals. It is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. Lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, lower blood pressure, and improvements in energy and mood are some of the many benefits people experience on this diet.
