What’s this got to do with stress?
What we eat, our eating patterns and our mindset about food are all fundamental to health. This workshop considers the time and financial restrictions artists commonly face to offer stress-reducing, health-boosting, nutrition-focused knowledge.
In this workshop, you can expect to:
- Learn about stress-reducing and anxiety-producing foods and eating patterns
- Identify when eating patterns are problematic
- Explore easy ways to plan and prepare meals on a budget
