Lakeside Natural Medicine Hosts Nutrition Workshop: 
Breaking the Fast

Feb 01, 2024 12:00AM ● By Natural Awakenings Milwaukee
Naturopathic Doctor Sarah Axtell of Lakeside Natural Medicine will teach how to think beyond bagels and cereal in her nutrition workshop, Breaking the Fast, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., March 16. Participants will learn about intermittent fasting and how to choose nutritious breakfasts that increase energy, decrease cravings and improve mood, digestion and skin.

“Eating a nutrient-dense, protein-rich breakfast helps to stabilize both cortisol and blood sugar levels. Breakfast is the perfect time to combat the stress we face throughout the day because we can use it to optimize our morning spike in cortisol,” explains Axtell. “Research shows that the timing of when we fast is actually more important than the total amount of time we fast. We will discuss how to appropriately break the fast in the morning to optimize energy levels.”

Preregistration required. Cost: $50 in person, includes recipes and food tasting; $39 for the video recording, includes recipes. Location: 3510 N. Oakland Ave., #203, Shorewood. For more information or to register, call 414-939-8748 or visit
