Super Immunity Class, #2

Early this year I taught a class with Davina of Nutrition Groove that was inspired by Joel Fuhrmans book Super Immunity: The Essential Nutrition Guide for Boosting Your Body’s Defenses to Live Longer, Stronger, and Disease Free.  Essentially he purports that diet is integrally linked to your body’s ability to fight off illness of all sorts from the common cold to cancer.  I am a believer.

We had such a good response to the first class that we taught another one yesterday.  Both the talking and cooking were based on Dr Fuhrman’s acronym GOMBBS, greens, onions, mushrooms, berries, beans, seeds. The recipes from the classes can be found on the Super Immunity Post on my blog.

In addition to cooking and lots of solid nutrition information from Davina we talked a lot about how each of us needs to incorporate healthy eating into our daily practice in a way that works for us as individuals.  There is no one way to eat– each of us has different requirements based on our individual biological needs, living situation, daily routine, seasonal changes and work demands…  Regardless what your diet is at the moment there is great information to be gleaned from Dr. Fuhrman’s studies and insights– and potentially shifts in your everyday eating.
