I was so honored to be chosen as a lead instructor at the inaugural Food Literacy Institute classes.
The Food Literacy Institute (FLI) is an open learning community based on the popular education model, which values the potential of everyday people to share knowledge and skills with one another as friends and neighbors. FLI is a project of the Food Commons Atlanta “Fertile Crescent” local economy development initiative and is intended to benefit primarily neighborhoods within South-West Atlanta. FLI is powered by Atlanta Food & Farm LLC and sponsored by a grant from the Georgia Department of Public Health.
This workshop gave practical examples of how to increase nutrients into daily eating habits. We discussed Harvard Medical School’s Healthy Eating Plate and strategies to choose the best foods to build, protect, and energize your body. We also created a smoothie that included many of the nutrient dense foods we discussed during the workshop.
There are many more classes being offered by the Food Literacy Institute. Check the flyer below for details!
