Stay Sharp with Age! 10 Key Factors to Take Care of Your Brain
Everyone wants to stay sharp with age! As baby boomers mature into older age groups, however, we are seeing more cases of dementia than ever before. “Here’s the good news,” says Dr. Annie Fenn: “We’re finding that up to 60% of all dementias could be prevented by paying attention to what we eat and how we live.” The scientific research is exploding with information about how to fend off age-related cognitive decline—in particular Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. That’s why Dr. Annie Fenn, a physician, chef, and culinary instructor, created the Brain Health Kitchen, the only cooking school of its kind to focus specifically on fending off Alzheimer’s. As both a Presenter and Visiting Chef, Dr. Fenn brings the Brain Health Kitchen to the Ranch. She’ll share the latest science in a talk about what to eat to nourish and protect your brain. You will learn real-life take-aways you can start using today. At La Cocina Que Canta, she’ll offer three hands-on cooking classes focused on easy and delicious meals using nutrient dense, anti-inflammatory ingredients. You will learn key cooking techniques specific to Alzheimer’s prevention, such as how to cook with olive oil without destroying its healthy fats. And, you will learn how to avoid the foods that contribute to cognitive decline.

 

Join Visiting Chef Annie Fenn for three Hands-on Cooking Classes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 4 pm at La Cocina que Canta.  Register at any Health Center at extensions 631 & 640 / Fee / Meet at the Administration Building.
