Nutritional Research Foundation events are fun, informative and, best-of-all they help to fund the studies we sponsor! They offer a unique opportunity to spend time both learning and having fun with Dr. Fuhrman. Join us at our next event as we share laughs, gain knowledge, and help to underwrite research to heal, prevent food-related disease, and promote longevity.

Scenes from the 2019 Aspen Getaway

Why is the annual Aspen Ski Getaway so special?

Each morning we come together for a hearty Nutritiarian breakfast at the Hotel and whether you prefer to ski, snowboard, hike, bike or to simply browse in the nearby village, you have six relaxing, fun days to enjoy all that Aspen has to offer!

The group meets each evening for an amazing Nutritarian dinner hosted by renowned chef Martin Oswald. Each evening he shares cooking tips and explains how that evening’s gourmet meal was prepared.

Following dinner the group convenes for an after-dinner lecture with the occasional get-together for a competitive game of charades, hosted by Dr. Fuhrman.

The Aspen Getaway experience is enlightening, invigorating and habit-forming – you will want to come back year after year!

The annual Aspen Ski Getaway raises funds to support the very important work of the Nutritional Research Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. The Foundation is committed to supporting and funding vital, critical clinical research exploring the impact that eating a nutrient-dense, plant–rich diet has on health, recovery, longevity and preventing chronic diseases.

“My favorite thing about the Aspen trip was everything! It was a rare opportunity to learn from Dr. Fuhrman in a small group setting, the food was a one-of-a-kind true Nutritarian cuisine and it motivated me to take my Nutritarian diet to the next level. And, of course, I lost weight while having a blast on the slopes!”
-Stacey S.

“Dr. Fuhrman’s lectures were stimulating, re-enforcing and very informative. A week of daily exercise (skiing), Nutritarian food and learning the Nutritarian way inspired and transformed me physically and mentally.”

-Yoshi N.
“The NRF Aspen trip exceeded all expectations. It combined excellent nutritional information from Dr. Fuhrman, great exercise from skiing at the breath taking resorts surrounding Aspen, world-class Nutritarian cuisine from Chef Martin Oswald, as well as developing great friendships with like-minded people. We were also supporting the NRF, which will play a critical role in refocusing our health care system on addressing the actual nutritional causes of the chronic diseases plaguing our society. It was a very meaningful and fun vacation that we will not forget.”
-Steve & Sue K.
“I really enjoyed the entire week in Aspen that the foundation offered. Dr. Fuhrman’s talks were enlightening and inspiring. I appreciated so much his diligent research and data about our current state of health in this country. We ate the most delicious answers (meals) to the problems and we are happy to contiue that lifestyle at home now as we have before we went to Aspen. It was my first time skiing ever (at age 66) and I look forward to more in the years ahead. Keep up your good work!”
-John M.
