Heart Tips and Healthy Oil Free Recipes
We all know the dangers posed by unhealthy foods and wrong eating habits. One of the most predominant diseases caused by these wrong lifestyle habits is Coronary Heart Disease. Like most developed nations, Singapore is seeing a rise in heart disease cases. It is predicted that by 2020, heart disease will be the number one global disease burden.

The workshop will also discuss the following topics:
1. What is Coronary Heart Disease?
2. What are the foods that promote or help prevent Coronary Heart Disease?
3. Benefits of adopting a low-oil and a no-oil diet.
Participants will also get to see the demonstrations of some tasty oil-free dishes.
