Course Description: Ever been told a particular nutrient was important, but had no idea where to find it....other than in the vitamin section at the grocery store? Or maybe you’ve looked at a multivitamin and thought, “But can’t I just get these things from the food I eat?” In this wellness workshop, we’ll discuss some key vitamins and minerals for optimal health, and where we can find them in real, whole foods. Let the Nutrient Scavenger Hunt begin!
