Westside Santa Cruz New Leaf: free store tour plus label reading tips

See also

Organic, Santa Cruz-based New Leaf Community Markets offers a diverse range of food, coffee, wine, and cooking events, and some are actually free! There’s one tomorrow at the Westside Santa Cruz New Leaf (1101 Fair Ave., Santa Cruz) that I highly recommend; see description below. Last fall I took a vegetarian cooking class with the instructor, Elizabeth Borelli, and learned a lot. And this one’s free – you have nothing to lose! Pre-registration is recommended.

Free Store Tour with local chef/author Elizabeth Borelli: 4-5:30 p.m. Tues 5/20/14
Food labels are confusing, but reading them is one of the best things you can do for your health. In fact, studies show that women who read nutrition labels weigh an average of 9 pounds less and have a lower risk of diet-related disease than non-label-readers! Join the Beanalicious Living author for a fun and engaging review of what to look for on the labels: no nutrition degree required!
