Nutrition Courses offered at NICC
The study of the basic principles and concepts of nutrition. Topics covered include carbohydrates, lipids (fats), proteins, vitamins, minerals, energy balance, and nutrition through the life cycle. Personal nutritional analysis and the relationship between diet and disease will be addressed.
This course engages indigenous practices and beliefs, focusing particularly on the food systems of the Native Americans of this region. Of specific interest are dynamic connections between native foods and the health of people and place, both traditionally and in societies affected by colonization and rapid cultural change, and how food systems have changed through these processes.
