New Free Monthly Lecture Series at the A.R.E.
Begins Wednesday, January 20
Cara Blume, owner of the Perfect Bite and a former healthy eating specialist at Whole Foods Market in Virginia Beach, is on a mission to educate and empower our community to find their "center" with food. Cara has a B.S. in Human Nutrition and Foods from Virginia Tech and is passionate about healthy eating. Her goal is to educate the community about the tremendous benefits of a plant-strong diet. During the lecture, Cara will discuss how a plant-based diet can benefit one's health, how to find your center with food, quick tips on learning how to read a food label, and the importance of selecting nutrient-dense foods (and what that means).
Registration for this free lecture is not required but recommended in order to reserve a seat. Individuals may register online or by phone at 757-457-7258. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., and the program follows at 10 a.m. Attendees are encouraged to explore the A.R.E.'s free activities or to visit the Cayce/Miller Café (featuring food from Leaping Lizard Café) open from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The next lecture in the series will be held on Wednesday, February 17, and will focus on the Foundations for Success.
