National Public Health Week: Eating Healthy with Linda Szarkowski

April 4, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)

Let’s take a minute and think about how (in little ways) we can become healthier every day, during National Public Health Week.

In this engaging presentation, you’ll discover how to strip away the foods that weigh you down and which foods can give you energy all day long.

You’ll find out how to:

Get healthy and stay healthy
Lose weight and keep it off
Make plant-based recipes that are super easy, and super delicious
Prepare healthy meals that keep you truly satisfied

You’ll also get to enjoy samples of Linda’s delicious Blueberry Cardamon Smoothie, which is packed with nutrition and goodness!


Linda Szarkowski, a chef, teacher and coach of plant-based eating, is passionate about showing people that healthy food can also be the best tasting. She has been on a self-taught quest for healthy living for decades and has backed it up with certifications in the Benefits of Raw Food Nutrition, Chef and Instructor from the Living Light Culinary Institute in Ft. Bragg, CA, and Living Foods Educator from the Living Foods Institute in Atlanta, GA. Linda has been a chef at the award-winning Chicago Diner and helped to open a raw restaurant, Beets Cafe in Austin TX, prior to starting her packaged raw food meals business, Green Spirit, in Chicago. She has inspired many people to adopt healthier eating with her classes and motivating talks that encourage change but not perfection. Linda has been a featured chef at VeganMania and the Taste of Chicago, where she was delighted to share her love of raw food with a diverse audience. Linda is excited to now bring her knowledge and skills to Traverse City.
