Sunday Brunch Benefits Slow Medicine Foundation

SunRaven: The Home of Slow Medicine will host a Sunday brunch from 10am to noon on July 10 at its Slow Medicine Café in Bedford, New York. The suggested donation of $25, or $10 for children ages 10 to 15, will benefit the Slow Medicine Foundation. The brunch is free for children nine and under.

“We will provide a farm-to-table breakfast of freshly picked greens from our garden, an egg frittata, coffee and teas,” says Michael Finkelstein, MD, SunRaven’s founder and director. “So much of our health is affected by what we put into our bodies. And there are many opinions out there.” Finkelstein suggests that what’s on our mind when we eat is as important as what is on our plate. “Think of it this way: if the organic broccoli you’ve chosen is on your plate so you don’t get cancer, then cancer is in your mind when you eat. And that’s not a great recipe for health.”

His nutrition advice is simple: “Pick fresh, whole foods that make you feel vibrant and well. Pick foods with color, and with a story—perhaps you bought it at a local farmer’s market and actually met the farmer. Eat meals that have been prepared with care and artistry, served on a table with flowers and candles—meals during which you actually are seated, at inner peace, surrounded by those you love.”

Finkelstein offers health evaluations with customized medical guidance. He is currently accepting new patients for his holistic-lifestyle teaching and coaching practice, and he also provides second opinions from a holistic perspective.
