The average American consumes upwards of 150 pounds of sugar per year. Added sugar hides in unsuspecting places such as sauces, soups, condiments and even sausages and hot dogs. Overconsuming added sugar, and carbohydrates in general, can put a strain on the body and lead to inflammation and elevated blood sugar, both of which have been shown to contribute to chronic disease. There are easy ways to reduce your sugar intake–education is the first step! Learn how to identify sugar sources, sugar swapping, balanced meals, and reading labels.
This workshop will be presented by Madia Jamgochian. Madia graduated from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition in 2013 after completing her BA in Environmental Studies and Exercise Sports Science at UCSB. Shortly after, she started her personal consulting business My Healing Habits. She enjoys educating on how to heal inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and believes in the food-as-medicine approach.
