The Power of Food – Your best medicine or worst poison!
This program is brought to you in partnership with Westford Health Dept.
Chef Oonagh Williams, who has appeared regularly for many years as the featured Chef on NH’s ABC WMUR’s Cooks Corner, presents The Power of Food – it can be the best medicine for your body or the worst poison. Chef Oonagh, has a Culinary Arts degree, always cooked from scratch with real ingredients. She has a deep knowledge of food and presents in a lively, entertaining and informative manner – all with a very British accent.
Chef Oonagh presented this talk at the 40th Annual Gluten Intolerant Group Conference in Atlanta, GA and also at the NH Conference on Aging, both May 2014. Chef Oonagh has also presented several times at the Boston Celiac conferences, the largest Celiac Disease support group in the country.
Chef Oonagh is not going to push a raw food diet (with NE winters, get real!), or have you give up your favorite foods (as if we would want to). Chef Oonagh will help you understand how the food you commonly eat can be causing other problems – beyond high cholesterol but including arthritis, headaches, fatigue etc.
Chef Oonagh will explain:
- The new FDA proposed food labeling
- Is GMO a good thing?
- Soy and corn everywhere
- How much sugar is too much sugar?
- The new cooking oils, new sugars, new grains, trans fat, hydrogenated fats.
- Is “fat free” and “sugar free” better for you?
- The increasing number of food allergies, not just gluten free.
Chef Oonagh discovered when she went totally gluten free – initially because of her son – that her arthritis pains and monthly period pains went away. Be reassured, Chef Oonagh eats real food, enjoys her chocolate, couldn’t give up cheese and doesn’t follow any strange food plan.
