Join Dr. Varich and learn how to relish fresh produce, without breaking the bank or wasting your money.

With grocery costs skyrocketing, you may be tempted to cut down on or even skip fresh produce. After a particularly brutal cold and flu season, it’s more important than ever, though, to incorporate these nutritional powerhouses into your everyday diet.

In this fun and engaging course, Laura Varich, M.D., a certified lifestyle medicine physician, will lead you on a discovery of interesting and impactful information that will help you choose and store your produce for maximal nutrition.

Do you know why the nutritional value of our produce has changed so dramatically in recent years? Do you know how and why plants create their nutrients? Do you know which nutrients break down quickly and how you can prevent this process? You soon will! And once you understand the answers to these questions, it will be easy for you to choose (and eat!) the most healthful plant foods for life.

So, if we are going to eat healthfully (and we are!), let’s get the most out of our efforts! Join Dr. Varich and learn how to relish fresh produce, without breaking the bank or wasting your money.

This program is presented by Dr. Laura Varich and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
