You're invited to experience the Inn at Mary’s Land Farm while you learn something new!
Limited, small group seating allows time for questions and comradery.
Are you having trouble sleeping? Do you have sugar cravings at night? Do you experience a slump in energy in the afternoons, or throughout the day? Do you struggle with blood sugar imbalance and want to learn how to eat in a way that supports healthy blood sugar handling?
Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Jaime Brooke will share information about blood sugar management, signs of blood sugar imbalance, and why keeping our blood sugar at “healthy” levels is critical for optimal health. She will discuss how to build a meal that will not spike your blood sugar and how to spot sneaky sugars in our packaged foods. She will explore multiple tactics to get off the blood sugar rollercoaster.
Following her presentation, participants will gather in the commercial kitchen for hands-on food preparation, tasting and cooking tips with innkeeper Julie Webb.
