Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to identify key fruits and vegetables that are rich in nutrients that help support our immune systems. They will develop an understanding of the benefits of juicing and how they can juice at home, using multiple methods.
I am offering this class because I truly feel that we can use biochemistry to improve our health. An understanding of the properties available in our foods allows us to consciously choose to eat foods that will support our immune system, especially during peak cold, flu, and allergy seasons.

I have taught food justice and best nutritional practices to middle schoolers in the NYC public school system for several years. I am also an avid practitioner of food as medicine, and have used biochemistry and nutritional therapy to prevent illness and treat my family when we are challenged by bacteria and viruses.
The students will be provided with a recipe in which they prepare a nutritious juice or meal and follow up with a review, feedback, or questions based on their experience.
Students will need to have access to fruits and vegetables. Students will also need access to a juicer or a blender and kitchen tools  (strainer, cheesecloth, bowl, rubber spatula or wooden spoon) to create juices at home.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is assessed based on questions and participation in the class, as well as their feedback from recipes.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
