Let’s talk about plants! Whether you’re curious about making the switch to an entirely plant-based diet, or you’d simply like to incorporate more plant-based meals into your routine, having a well stocked kitchen and pantry and a few simple techniques in your toolbox is essential! While diets make lots of promises, there is no disputing that we all benefit from incorporating more whole, unprocessed plant foods into our lives. A Whole Food Plant-Based diet is the only one proven to prevent and reverse heart disease and impact cancer promotion and progression. Despite the overwhelming research, we get lost amid a storm of media confusion surrounding diet choices — high fat, low carb, high protein — and myths abound. Food choice is embedded in our culture, in our history and in our habits, and plant-based eating can feel unfamiliar. This session will show you what a plant-based diet really looks like and share tips for making simple changes that will bring the most nourishing, delicious food on the planet onto your plate!
