Balance Your Plate with Nourish at Stanford CARE

Food can be an important part of identity for many in the Asian/Pacific Islander (API) community. Yet with the prevalence of chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes in Asian communities, API individuals often feel the need to abandon their beloved cultural foods in order to improve their health, leading to unsustainable lifestyle changes and self-doubt.

Nourish at Stanford CARE has a mission to improve the health of API individuals through culturally sensitive nutrition education for Asians and delicious, healthy recipes that celebrate Asian culture. In this free webinar, you will learn about the components of a balanced meal, simple recipes you can try from the NOURISH cookbook, and creative ways to make small yet impactful changes to the Asian foods you love.

Whether you are part of the API community or simply curious about a healthier way to enjoy Asian cuisine, you are invited to join Nourish’s dynamic team of physicians, registered dietitians, and healthcare interns for a fun and enriching discussion on how to make more sustainable changes to your eating habits in a deliciously nutritious way.

This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.
