On Wednesday, October 8, San Clarita Valley area doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals participated in the second annual New Roads to Health seminar. The event, which kicked off a series of lectures in the Los Angeles area, was held in honor of the Founders Day celebration of G&E Healthcare Services, and was sponsored by FoodTrients.com in cooperation with Henry Mayo Hospital in Valencia. It was hosted by Grace Mercado Ouano (Grace O) and took place at the state-of-the-art Henry Mayo Education Center.
Featuring experts in the fields of nutrition, health and light therapy, the event was held in order to share some of the most current and innovative practices to promote nutrition and good health. Also in attendance were Henry Mayo President and CEO Roger Seaver and his wife Rizalina, and Philippine Consul General Leo Herrera-Lim and his wife Fides. The event was emceed by television producer and host Robb Weller.
In keeping with the wellness theme, New Roads to Health included a lunch inspired by FOODTRIENTS: Age-Defying Recipes for a Sustainable Life, Grace O’s cookbook and website featuring recipes that promote good health and help slow the aging process. Sodexo Services, the catering service for Henry Mayo, prepared colorful salads of fresh greens, vegetables, berries and nuts; baked chicken breast, healthy wrap sandwiches, crudités and fresh fruit. A delicious selection of desserts and beverages were provided by Grace and her FoodTrients team and included Banana Citrus Cake, Baobab Butter Squares and Mini Cheddar Rice Cupcakes. Recipes for Grace’s indulgent but healthy desserts will be coming out in her next cookbook – AGE BEAUTIFULLY: Easy and Exotic Longevity Secrets from Around the World – which will be published by Skyhorse Publishing next fall.
The presentations were made by noted individuals whose involvement in nutrition and healing is internationally recognized as being at the forefront of modern holistic practices.
