Many of us have heard the phrases, "You are what you eat" or “Food is your medicine.” Here at TRILLFIT, this holiday season we’re focused on learning and understanding more about the types of food we consume, how we might add more healthy choices into our diets, what eating locally sourced foods can do to support our community, and how nutritional choices can prevent and limit diseases.
This workshop is led by a panel of experts who will dive into the importance of the food we ingest, the nutrients our bodies need (based on several types of dietary preferences), and tips and tricks to maintaining our health during the holiday season.
Panelists: Chef Elle Simone Scott, culinary maverick and founder of SheChef, Inc; Vanessa Santos, Holistic Therapist & Health Coach; and Cassandria Campbell of Fresh Food Generation.

For a lot of us, mid-term elections and the ensuing political discourse can stir up emotions, stress, and anxiety. In the face of the 2016 election, the recent confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, and more, many of us have agreed to try to move forward in productive ways by building awareness, community organizing, activism, or running for office. But how are we taking care of ourselves throughout the fight for justice and equality? This workshop will cover finding, practicing, and achieving self care in 2018.
Facilitators: Malia Lazu, CEO of The Urban Labs; Dr. Monica O’Neal, Harvard trained Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Relationship Expert, and Media Consultant; and Jeneé Osterheldt, Boston Globe culture writer who covers identity and social justice through the lens of culture and the arts.
