ACHS learning vacation—Mediterranean Holistic Cuisine—offers unique combination of expert, hands-on instruction and relaxation

Sun-kissed isles and tantalizing cuisine, holistic nutrition learning vacations from the American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) offer full immersion and an authentic Greek isle experience. Through engaging hands-on study you’ll learn the many health benefits and cooking techniques of the Mediterranean diet during ACHS’s Mediterranean Holistic Cuisine Summer Session in Greece 2010 hosted by acclaimed chef and author Susan Belsinger and renowned holistic health expert and ACHS President Dorene Petersen, June 26-July 2, 2010.

Mediterranean Holistic Cuisine Summer Session in Greece 2010 is a stimulating learning vacation and provides the unique opportunity for you to learn something new while having an out-of-the-ordinary experience: an educational adventure with a vacation pace.

“Participants at our Mediterranean Holistic Cuisine Summer Session,” says ACHS President Dorene Petersen, “not only get some much needed relaxation in a beautiful Greek island setting, but they also get to learn and experience well-researched holistic nutrition guidelines for how to start improving optimal health and wellness. The Mediterranean diet has been shown to have many health benefits, including lowered risk of death from heart disease and cancer, and is focused on simple ingredients people can use to cook with everyday, like fresh fruits and vegetables, tree nuts, whole grains, and olive oil, a healthy fat.”

“Plus,” Petersen adds, “ACHS’s Mediterranean Holistic Cuisine Summer Session is a seven-day learning vacation, so participants are immersed in the island of Syros and learn how to identify and harvest wild, edible plants, and to use them in delicious Mediterranean menus. Participants start using the health tools they are learning about while on vacation, which makes the transition back to everyday cooking easier and more appealing.”

Participants stay in the Abela Villa on the island of Syros, receive 3-4 hours of daily hands-on culinary and meal preparation instruction, and three meals a day prepared with fresh, local ingredients.
