Join Amanda Archibald on a virtual visit to the restaurant of one of Italy's emerging chefs. Connect the dots between his menu and how the ingredient he uses talk the language of our DNA. Then we'll visit the Islands of Ikaria in the Aegean Sea and Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea and look at how their simple, traditional fare and way of life is in fact some of the best "medicine" we can take. For the final part of this webinar, we'll head back to the Dolomite region of Northern Italy (Italian Alps) for a pictorial journey through food, culture, traditions of this stunning region. Once again we'll connect the trilogy of food, traditions and cultural values to a language that can connect with our genes
Blue Zones are geographical locations where clusters of people live beyond the age of 100. Two of these Blue Zones are in the Mediterranean. In this webinar, learn about these Mediterranean islands and the lifestyle and food habits of the centenarians who live there. Then we'll look a little deeper under the hood to reveal how compounds in the foods of these longevity islands are literally talking to our genes. Learn which foods these are and how to serve them up on your plate in simple and delicious ways. Amanda Archibald with Dr Joe Veltmann
This thirty minute session will introduce the reader to the evidence and current recommendations that support the nutritional need for five or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day to promote overall health and reduce the risk of developing cancer.

I am a professional competitive cyclist and a two-time Master's National Champion for road racing. I continue to train as an elite athlete and provide nutritional periodization plans to compliment training periodization plans. My professional passion is for helping people gain essential knowledge for promoting optimal health outcomes throughout the lifespan. Additionally, my desire is to help people put this knowledge into practice through behavior change strategies that take an ecological approach and address the cultural econiche, as well as the biological econiche. The end result of such endeavors should result in a proactive pursuit of compressed morbidity where life and wellness is fully realized and functional for most of the human life span, thus compressing the years of degenerative disease to the final stages of the life span. My personal passions include enjoying physical movement of many forms, the beauty of nature, and good foods.
