Eating for optimal health might seem like a science, but it’s as easy as combining delicious foods that contain the right healing compounds. I’ll teach you how to cook, stir, blend and pair foods to make them healthier and tastier in my brandnew Kitchen Alchemy Cooking Class at the Institute of Culinary Education on October 27th from 10am-2pm.

Curcumin is one of the most potent cancer fighting compounds being studied. You’ll find it in high concentration in ground turmeric. Curcumin is best absorbed when heated with a fat source.

Anthocyanins, the colored pigment you find in fruits (like cherries, berries, red kale) and vegetables (radish and red cabbage), can help you protect your skin and organs from free radical damage. Double up on them for ultimate absorption.

Capsaicin is the active ingredient in chili that can help you burn more calories – up to 1 full hour after enjoying them. Good quality fats, MUFAs, also know for their anti-inflammatory power, are an ideal pair with chilies, since capsaicin is fat soluble.
