Continuing Education for Food, Nutrition & Health Professionals
Focus: Mediterranean Lifestyle for Optimal Health
A 7-Day focused immersion into the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle designed to provide an overview of the culture, nature and cuisine of Crete. Emphasis is on cuisine in helping to maintain optimal health; food as medicine and developing strategies to implement the Mediterranean lifestyle when returning home.
Join us for an informative and exciting workshop on the magnificent isle of Crete, the center of the Mediterranean Diet. Our base is in a region where olive oil and wine has been produced for over four thousand years. This historic region is bustling with small-scale agricultural production in communities striving to sustain cherished traditions. We’ll visit resident specialists at their “field offices.” Classes include private guided tours of archaeological sites, natural parks/botanical hikes, organic farms, markets, olive oil factories and wineries; presentations by healthcare and alternative medicine practitioners; as well as several amazing cooking classes. Space is limited to 20 Attendees. Advance registration is required.
