Course Description: Once upon a time, the word “diet” simply indicated a way of eating. Today, it’s become wrapped up in a swirl of negativity and unhealthy mindsets. Let’s change that! In this workshop, we’ll talk about different ways of eating, and deciphering those diets. Curious about Gluten-Free? Paleo? Vegetarian? Keto? You’ll learn what each of these diets really is, and how to pursue them in a healthful way that makes sense to you. Bring your questions! This will be part presentation, part discussion. Let’s learn together!

What Helps B12 Absorption? | Livestrong
12 Foods High in B12 | Healthline (Note: the three I don't necessarily agree with are "fortified cereal", "fortified nutritional yeast", and "fortified nondairy milk" - not because they aren't high in B12, but because it's not something those foods inherently came with. If something says "fortified" on a food label, it means an ingredient has been added that it didn't naturally come with.)

I added some extra keto books to the list, since that's such a hot topic right now! These are all authors who have points-of-view I currently trust, and who address keto with a balanced, holistic, real food perspective. Enjoy!
