Wed, April 19, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM PDT
In a public health climate where more than one-third of adults in the United States are obese and millions have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been.
This curriculum is based on PCRM's successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program. The Kickstart has helped thousands of people adopt a plant-based diet to reach their health goals. For some people, it's the first time the idea of not restricting amounts of foods but rather choosing the right foods has been the guiding principle for maintaining and healthy weight and staying healthy. Lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood are some of the many benefits people experience on this diet.
Discover which foods are optimal for weight management, learn about various health topics including blood pressure and digestion, and get empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In our classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive group setting.
In this class we will also cover nutrition topics that are important for women who are currently pregnant, considering pregnancy or post-partum.
I will be demonstrating at least 3 different recipes and giving you some simple, easy-to-remember key concepts to improve your diet. You will have the opportunity to sample everything I demonstrate. Come to learn and bring a friend!
