Oldways A Taste of African Heritage

September 18, 2018

The Barnett Community Wellness Organization is proud to announce that it will offer a six week course called A Taste of African Heritage this November. The course curriculum was created through Oldways. 


Chef Liesha will present the course, which is centered on a cultural approach to health and wellness. Participants can expect instruction on preparing meals, basic nutrition information and advice on how to incorporate culturally specific foods on a daily menu. Attention to developing healthy habits such as increasing water intake and exercise at your level will also be included. 


Participants may choose to have their blood pressure and measurements taken at the beginning of the course and the end to see how they have progressed. The focus is to give tangible tools for health and wellness that are good for everyday use. 


Chef Liesha is a Personal Chef and holds a bachelors degree in Nutrition Communication and is an anti diet, body positive nutritionist.
