• Nutrition

  • We all know the saying, "you are what you eat." However, making positive changes to your nutrition can sometimes feel like an insurmountable task. Navigating the world of options that claim to be sugar-free, fat-free, gluten-free, non-GMO - the list goes on and on - can be difficult.

    The surgeon general's report on nutrition reveals that eight out of the ten leading causes of death in the United States have a nutritional or alcohol-related component. So nutrition is absolutely vital for creating and sustaining good health.

    At Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, we'd like to be able to make that insurmountable, yet important, task feel just a little bit easier (and more fun!) with our nutrition-related wellness programs.

    Garden of Eatin'

    Mission
