I gave my lecture on Monday to the CEO group to which I belong and I think I had a hit. The chair had scheduled me in for 1 hour and because it was going so well, I ended up speaking for 2.5 hours with no breaks!!!
I decided to structure my talk on some true and false questions mostly about the latest media topics related to food and nutrition. I then talked about Nutrigenomics and SNP's and then for the last 2 hours I talked about Blood Type.
I also brought in a selection of walnuts, black cherry juice, almonds, sweet potato pow cookies, flax cookies, flax oil and spelt and sprouted grain breads. I spoke after lunch (lunch was a piece of salmon, spinach salad and selection of vegetables).
My cohorts were extremely interested throughout the presentation, and of all the speakers that day, I had the most questions and the most "aha's."
I didn't do a power point presentation, instead I wrote up a handout booklet. (I will post once I get it cleaned up a bit more).
I had so many questions I couldn't answer in the time period, that I need to write emails to another 5-7 people to answer the questions.
I spent the last couple of weeks listening to the lectures from last year's conference and reading the various books. What it really distills down to is everyone needs to eat sufficient "greens (vegetables and fruits)", the correct type of protein (whether it is red meat, tofu, beans, fish or fermented milk and cheeses) and appropriate oils from nuts and seeds for their type. In all of the books specifically related to conditions, grains and breads seemed to be a luxury that didn't necessarily improve one's health. I never did find one grain that made it on a top food to fight....
Green tea made it on almost everyone's list!!!
So after my big presentation, I am feeling a little like what's next????
On the food scene, I am determined to make it through my freezer full of beef. It is summerlike here so it is really easy to make steaks and spinach salads for supper every night. Lunches are getting tougher these days, I am trying to be creative but the pull of the soccer field is winning out over school lunches!!!
