Kickstart Your Health! Food for Life classes begin 5/17

Join Progressive Health of Delaware registered dietitian, Karen Smith, for a weekly series of informative, fun, and tasty nutrition and cooking classes! Food for Life is an award-winning nutrition and cooking program designed by physicians, registered dietitians, and nurses to inform people of the powerful role food plays in achieving good health and preventing and reversing disease. The classes include evidence-based nutrition information, practical skills, and cooking demonstrations of easy-to-make and delicious plant-based foods. The best part, perhaps, are the food samples of all the dishes prepared in class and the recipes to take home. If you want to lose weight, lower your blood pressure, cholesterol, or blood sugar, or learn more about healthy cooking, these classes are for you!  

Five weekly classes will be held on 5/17, 5/24, 5/31, 6/7, and 6/14 at the First Unitarian Church of Wilmington from 3:00-4:15 pm. The church is located at 730 Halstead Rd. Wilmington, DE 19803. Classes will be in the all-purpose room, the entrance to which is located along Whitby Dr. There is a large parking lot along Whitby Dr., directly across from the church entrance.

The cost of classes is $125 for the series or $25 per individual class. You can register for the series or individual classes online at, or by calling (302) 543-5454. 

BE WELL, PHODKaren Smith
