Healthy Living Workshops & Events

We typically offer one or two Healthy Living Workshops each month in Chesterton, Indiana and the surrounding areas. These workshops are on a variety of topics related to healthy living. While we try to offer new workshops as often as possible, we also will repeat workshops that are in high demand.

 

Have a group of 10 or more that is interested in participating in a particular Workshop? Let us know and we will schedule a private workshop on a date and time that works best for you and your group!

FREE Screening of Fed Up
Thursday, January 8th @ 6:30pm
Mindful Nourishment - 830 E. Sidewalk Rd. #201 in Chesterton, Indiana

 

Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths a dirty secret of the American food industry-far more of us get sick from what we eat than anyone has previously realized. Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and TV journalist Katie Couric lead us through this potent exposé that uncovers why-despite media attention, the public's fascination with appearance, and government policies to combat childhood obesity-generations of American children will now live shorter lives than their parents did. 

 

All attendees will receive one entry into the New Year Giveaway drawing!

“Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” 

~ Mike Adams

 

Superfoods are nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Eating them can reduce the risk of chronic disease, prolong life, and people who eat more of them are often healthier and thinner than those who don't. Even if you already eat healthy, tweaking your diet to include some of these Superfoods can drastically improve your health.

 

Come learn about my favorite Everyday Superfoods as well as Advanced Superfoods. Learn how to make great tasting fresh juices, green smoothies and medicinal smoothies. Get the chance to see and taste Superfoods in action!

FREE Screening of Genetic Roulette
Tuesday, February 10th @ 6:30pm
Mindful Nourishment - 830 E. Sidewalk Rd. #201 in Chesterton, Indiana

 

Never-Before-Seen-Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.

Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare. This sometimes shocking film may change your diet, help you protect your family, and accelerate the consumer tipping point against genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Don’t miss this film!

 

This is a FREE event, but registration is required to reserve a seat. Space is limited!
