Weavers Way Neighborhood Nutrition Team Workshop: Culinary Herbs & Warming Spices for Medicinal Benefits

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

We add herbs and spices to our food for the flavor and depth they add to virtually any meal. But this is only one of the many reasons to use spices and herbs in your cooking. In this workshop, Neighborhood Nutrition Team member Wendy Romig discusses the medicinal benefits of using culinary herbs and warming spices in your food.

You'll learn which herbs and spices are packed with nutrition, antioxidants and other phytochemicals that can add therapeutic value to your food, helping you live a longer and healthier life. The more variety, the better! Ginger in your tea? Oregano on your mixed salad? Cinnamon on your warm oatmeal? Yes, please!


This workshop takes place at Mt. Airy NEXUS, located at 520 Carpenter Lane.

The Weavers Way Neighborhood Nutrition Team is a group of six nutritionists, dietitians and other wellness practitioners. The Team aims to bring nutrition inspiration and information to Co-op members, providing information and resources that empower members to make desired changes in their nutrition.

This workshop will be taught by Wendy Romig, MS, CNS, Functional Nutritionist and Clinical Herbalist. Wendy owns Sage Integrative Health Center in Mt. Airy, where she sees a wide range of acute and chronic illnesses.
