If you’ve emerged from winter feeling heavy and lethargic, this is a lecture you will not want to miss!
Leah Lizarondo of The Brazen Kitchen will talk about the Top 7 Things You Can Do To "Cleanse" This Spring. You don't have to go through a radical detox. Simple things you can incorporate in your diet will give you some of the same benefits.
After the short talk, there will be a Q&A where you can ask Leah about all things cooking, health and nutrition - and how to realistically do it in our busy lives.
