FAME 10-Week Series
Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) is a 10-week virtual nutrition education series that focuses on helping individuals improve their health through diet and other lifestyle changes. The FAME virtual series is broadcast live from the FAME kitchen at Saint Luke’s Muriel I. Kauffman Women’s Heart Center.
From the comfort of your home, learn foundational nutrition concepts that illustrate the benefits of a more whole-foods way of eating. Led by Grace Hoffman, FAME educator and nutritional health coordinator for Saint Luke's, the highlight of the class is the guided cooking demonstrations showcasing the ease of making delicious and nutritious meals.
In addition to cooking, the virtual series will feature interactive nutrition lessons. Topics include the benefits of whole foods versus processed foods and learning about macronutrients and their food sources. Students also will be taught to read food labels, establish realistic strategies for healthy eating, learn about foods’ impact on blood sugar regulation, and acquire tips for grocery shopping and eating on the go.
