February 6th- Basics of a Plant-Based Diet: Whether the goal is to prevent disease, aid in current management of a health condition, or prevent recurrence of a chronic illness, the evidence is clear: plant-based diets are the best dietary approach to health, wellness, and vitality. This month's presentation will go over the basics of what a plant-based diet is, the evidence that supports a plant-based diet, and how to realistically incorporate more plants into your daily diet. 

March 6th - Food Label Reading, Food Shopping, and Eating Out: 
There are many healthful foods that can be purchased to make healthy cooking more convenient. And food labels can be a great tool to assess the healthfulness of foods, but they can be difficult to read. This month's presentation will focus on how to decode and better understand how to read food labels when food shopping to make the healthiest purchases possible, as well as eating food away from home.


April 3rd - Culinary Medicine Techniques: Food is more than just its nutrients. The way that we prepare our food can powerfully enhance its nutritional quality and medicinal effects. This month's lecture will go in depth into how we can make small adjustments to how we prepare our food to increase its overall benefits. This will include specific foods, spices, teas, and cooking methods that increase the ability of our meals to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, promote healing, and increase the nourishment we receive from our meals. 

May 1st - Plant Powered Cooking Demo:  Let's get cooking! We will take the lessons we have learned and put them into practice in creating tasty, healthy, and simple to prepare meals.

This revolutionary series will guide participants on how to adopt a nourishing, nutrient dense, plant-based diet through a series of Cooking Classes, Workshops, and Weekly Support Meetings. Additionally, participants will receive Biometric Screenings (Weight, Blood Sugar, and Blood Pressure) and the beginning, middle, and end of the program so participants can have evidence of how their own health has changed over time.
