Wellness & Resilience – Why you’re Confused about Food and What to do About it!
with Martina Mullin, Healthy Trinity - Lunchtime wellness talk:

The age old question, “What should I eat?” continues to cause confusion.   This workshop will answer that question from a health promotion perspective.  It will give an overview of the diet industry and what it has to gain from muddying the waters about food. It will clarify how you might change what you eat if your focus is on food from a scientific, artistic, ethical and/or social perspective.  It challenges the ambivalence about what is “good food” and highlights eating as an opportunity for nutrition, pleasure and social interaction.
