Last night was orientation/ first night of classes! Lets just say there was more poop talk than I’ve ever had with strangers J. We did the usual meet and greet and dove right into the first class: Nutrition and Health: The Fundamentals. Because it was the first class we mostly just talked through the basics. We touched on the 3 different components of wellness: dietary, functional and lifestyle and some of the many barriers people might encounter trying to attain each. Other topics we briefly skimmed over was the difference between organic and non organic farming, including some of the pesticide and herbicides used (historically and presently), soil and soil health, and then we finished the night by briefly looking at cells and their different components.
Although this was not an in depth intense session, I can already see from reading through the syllabus as well as the required readings, that this is going to be 2 of the toughest, most rewarding years of my life and I can not wait!
I will pop back on Friday to fill you in on all the fun stuff I learn Thursday night. Until then I will leave you with 2 yummy treats I’ve been enjoying basically every day
