Cooking for Peace with Special Guest Gwyn Whittaker

We all know the phrase you are what you eat but we usually just think of the physical effects of food on our health. Food influences our mental, spiritual and physical well-being, and the societies in which we live. Join us and learn how food choices and food preparation affect our emotions, integrity and health and the ethical impact on animals and the environment. Workshop includes a discussion and vegan food preparation. Come learn and taste with us.

Gwyn Whittaker, CEO of GreenFare Organic Cafe, is an electrical engineer from VA Tech who started and led a strategic services company for over 10 years. She will share her story of how she discovered the power of a plant-based lifestyle and opened the GreenFare Organic Cafe in November 2015. She has led hundreds of people through a 21 Day Kickstart program that is offered monthly and watched dramatic health improvements. She’ll discuss the basics of why and how to move to anti-inflammatory food choices that allow aging without pain or medication.

Gwyn is a certified Master Gardener, Certified in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell, and a Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine Food for Life Instructor.
