Return of the Super Foods Workshop Announced

Library patrons who attended the Super Foods Workshop presented by Dr. Frank D. Dumont on Aug. 12 were treated to several tasty treats while learning about the dietary importance of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals). Since the class capacity was reached so quickly and a long waitlist formed, the Estes Valley Library and Estes Park Medical Center will partner to bring the program back again on Oct. 5 from 12:30-1:30 pm in the Hondius Room.

It can be difficult to determine what to believe about the latest food hero or villain. New diets that praise only eating or completely avoiding certain food groups are constantly bombarding us. Unfortunately many of these fad diets don’t focus on what will benefit your long-term health.

As science has studied the health-giving properties of foods, individual nutrients have been identified, reproduced and studied.

“What we are starting to appreciate is that in any given food there is a whole constellation of nutrients ─ some that we’ve identified and can measure and some that we don’t even know exist ─ that combine to make some foods true wonder drugs or super heroes,” said Dr. Dumont.

The key to unmasking super foods is nutrient density. Foods with a high level of nutrients compared to the calories they contain are more nutrient dense and have health-enhancing properties. During the program Dr. Dumont discussed several super nutrient-dense foods, along with their side-kicks and archenemies. Samples and recipes were also provided.

Registration for the Oct. 5 Super Foods Workshop is now available through the Library's online calendar. 
Reserve your spot quickly so Dr. Dumont can help you balance the forces of good and evil in your day-to-day diet.
