Feel Good Foods and Making Every Mouthful Matter | Treading Above Water

This program is offered virtually and open to anyone who has been impacted by cancer. Membership is not required to participate. 

Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto invites you to join us for our new education series, Treading Above Water.  Each week throughout the month of April we will provide virtual educational opportunities to learn from subject matter experts about the difficult topic of dying and death.

Treading Above Water is an opportunity to learn how to process difficult information and plan the best options for you or your loved ones during a period of time when life’s waters are calm, so that you will be able to keep your head above water when life becomes more turbulent and the water gets deep.

Focusing on feel good foods & making every mouth matter: Favourite comfort foods that provide energy
Please join Chef Amy as part of the Treading Water Series at Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto on April 29th as she discusses and showcases examples of favourite feel-good, seasonal foods that not only provide energy and taste like comfort but are nutrient-dense and a great component of an anti-cancer diet. Making every mouthful matter nutritionally speaking is particularly important, but the social and emotional aspect of eating is paramount, particularly during stressful times.
