We’re excited to announce that The Ross Heart Hospital Garden has even more to offer this year than in previous seasons. The garden was established in 2015 to give patients the tools they need to improve their own health, educating them in healthy cooking and facilitating discussion between community members and expert clinicians on how a nutrient-dense diet can improve overall wellness.
This year, classes will be held weekly from May through mid-September, and they will be available to Ross Heart Hospital patients, caregivers and community members. All classes are free to attend. You won’t want to miss this.
During our first class of the season, “Healthy and Inspiralizing Pastas,” attendees will use spiralized vegetables to create healthy, nutrient dense versions of your favorite pasta dishes! Later in the season, class members will learn techniques such as the best way to grill vegetables, how pulses heart reduce your risk of heart disease, and some food prep tips and tricks with Chef Asbury. Have you ever wondered how nutrition may affect how we sleep? Participants will have the rare opportunity to speak with pulmonologist and sleep expert Dr. Rami Khayat during our “Sleep Special.” Confused about buzzwords like natural/organic/Non-GMO? We’ll get there, too! All of this and so much more is featured in this season’s classes.
