Join our resident nutritionist, Vicki Robichaux, as she instructs on how managing your insulin levels may be one of the most effective keys to optimal health. Insulin is necessary to move glucose from our blood stream into the cells for energy or storage, however the Standard American Diet (SAD) – high in processed carbohydrates and added sugars – causes excess insulin to be produced. Most people know that increased insulin can lead to diabetes, but they may not know that it can lead to obesity, heart disease, cancer and other inflammatory diseases. In this class, Vicki will instruct on how to use food as medicine, and specifically what to eat to reduce insulin, as Chef Dan instructs on the proper techniques to creating these flavorful dishes that you can add to your diet and adapt going forward.
