FRIDAY: REBOOT OF FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE
Friday programming will focus on the foundational elements of how patients and patrons think about diet and healthy food. We will explore the adaptability of Mediterranean diet and the research behind heritage diets around the world along with the current evidence around popular diets such as intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet and the carbon footprint of our foodways.
