Turchia: Italian for Turkey…so??
While all of you are piling on the turkey (or quinoa or tofurkey) and veggies (don’t forget the veggies please!) and even adding a little dessert and wine to the mix, I am packing my bags for Italy. Jealous? well, you should be, but not so much because I will have a few days in Rome and Florence to indulge in some of my favorite fare, but more so because on Tuesday I arrive in Milan for a meeting of the (nutrition) minds that rivals all meetings that occur each year. Read more below about the Barilla Center for food and nutrition and you will agree, what they are doing promises to produce innovative solutions to global health…one plate at a time.
Now, how would you like to come to Italy with me? Thanks to technology, I don’t even have to pack you in my bag (which would surely cause me to incur high baggage fees!), but rather you can learn & taste along with me this week via twitter and next week – wed & Thurs – join me for what promises to be thought-provoking conversations yielding pragmatic nutrition advice, by joining the webinar and following my reactions on twitter and Facebook.
So while you won’t be eating sardines and tasting sheep’s milk cheese with me (my Italian dreams), you will be getting the education opportunity of a lifetime. Hope to “see” you then. Have questions??? Send them to me via twitter or Facebook before the sessions begin and I will be sure they get answered.
The Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition
The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition (BCFN) is a think tank founded in 2009 with the goal of analyzing major global issues connected with food and nutrition. It approaches these issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective, so as best to highlight all the various components involved. Economic, scientific, social and environmental factors are analyzed in terms of their cause-and-effect relationship with food, emphasizing how aspects of our lives are connected to this relationship that goes beyond any “simple” need to feed ourselves.
