Food Trends


Is the Mediterranean diet the ‘perfect’ diet? Should I be supplementing with collagen in my smoothie enough for my protein needs? I feel run down, is taking an adaptogen the solution to my low energy needs? If you find yourself asking questions like this about your nutrition, then this class is for you.

Join us in this three-session online course to discern truth over fiction. Through creative discussion, weekly tips, application of tools derived from nutritional science, and a virtual taste test from your kitchen, you will become empowered to navigate the ongoing hype around popular trends regarding health, stress and energy levels. Take control over misinformation and embrace your health through delicious dietary practices.

Instructor: Gretchen George, PhD, RDN is passionate about prevention and empowerment. As associate professor and co-program lead of the nutrition and dietetics program at San Francisco State University, she facilitates learning in and out of the classroom.
