ONEIDA — The Oneida branch of the YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley, 701 Seneca St., will host a free series of wellness seminars beginning Tuesday, Nov. 1, with “Healthy Eating for a Healthier You” from 12:30-2:30 p.m.
Speaker Jeff Beam, a professional chef for more than 30 years, will present an interactive discussion about sugar and processed foods, and how they affect our bodies.
Chef Beam knew he wanted to be in the food industry when he was 12-years-old and after learning his trade in various restaurants in the area, he accepted an apprenticeship position at the Excelsior Hotel under Walter Stibe, a governor of the Culinary Institute of America.
While working there, Chef Beam said he had the pleasure of cooking for famous people such as President Bill Clinton, Kenny Rogers, Woody Harrelson and Kurt Russell. After graduation from the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Beam moved back to Verona and has made the Black Stallion restaurant is home for 28 years.
Attendees will learn how to make healthy food choices when shopping, preparing meals, eating in restaurants, or on special occasions.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, consuming sugar-sweetened beverages and highly processed foods can lead to weight gain, obesity and other chronic conditions that put people at higher risk of at least 13 types of cancer.
Registration is not required for the seminar and all ages are invited to attend.
Additional seminars in the series will include:
The Wellness Speaker Series is sponsored by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield.
