eating for health - archive
a talk by Peter Deadman
Friday 2nd May 2014 - this event has now taken place
Most of us want to eat well – to have a healthy diet that is both satisfying and affordable. But with so many competing opinions and apparently contradictory research appearing all the time, it can seem more difficult than ever to know how best to eat. Using, as a starting point, the two-thousand year plus tradition of healthy eating found in Chinese life cultivation teachings, Peter will present some broad principles and simple guidelines for healthy eating, backed up by the last few decades of dietary research. In the 1970s Peter co-founded Biting Through (natural foods restaurant), Infinity Foods, the Infinity bakery and the Brighton Natural Health Centre. He has practised Chinese medicine for over thirty years and is an internationally known author and teacher of Chinese healthcare. For the past two years he has been researching and writing 'Live Well, Live Long' – a source book on the Chinese nourishment of life tradition.
