VIRTUAL: Recipes from the Blue Zones – Cuisine of Okinawa, Japan

Join us for the final session of a 5-part series of virtual cooking demos in 2022 that will explore the cuisines & lifestyles from the Blue Zones. In this series, we will highlight five different communities around the world that are Blue Zones. These zones are home to some of the healthiest, longest-lived people in the world, who not only find importance in what you eat, but also how you eat. Everyday foods in these communities are plant-focused and include simple, yet delicious recipes based on time-honored traditions.

This session of Recipes from the Blue Zones features the Pacific Archipelago of Okinawa, whose cuisine is a blend of Chinese, Southeast Asian, and Japanese. Ingredients central to this community’s dietary pattern include things like purple sweet potatoes, tofu, carrots, bitter melon, and dashi broth. We welcome you to come experience Okinawan practices focused on nutrition, activity, and social connections, as well as what that can teach us about living healthier lifestyles.

Class will be led by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Recipes and handouts will be shared with individuals who attend the virtual session.

Note: This is a demonstration class offered live via Zoom, a web-based video conferencing platform that is free.
