Does heart disease run in your family? Or diabetes? Or arthritis, migraines, dementia? These conditions and many more are strongly linked to what we eat, and it could very well be that it’s the FOOD that runs in the family. We’ll follow the science to look at how a whole food, plant-based, low fat diet has become the leading “treatment” plan for those with heart disease, type 2 diabetes, common cancers, for healthy weight loss, and even to prevent the dreaded Alzheimer’s disease.

Lifestyle Medicine is the new black, so to speak. Conferences are being held coast to coast to re-educate medical practitioners on what they missed in Med School...nutrition. It makes sense, since most chronic diseases are diet/lifestyle related. Pills and procedures may save lives in an emergency situation, but PLANTS, eating them, are our best form of prevention and treatment. It’s never too late to start on a healthier path.

In this three-part series, we’ll focus on heart disease and type 2 diabetes first, then cancer and weight loss, and lastly, our third class will cover diet and dementia/avoiding Alzheimer’s, plus a screening of a documentary that touches on all these topics.

Since food is our focus, we’ll be preparing and enjoying two delicious dishes during each class.
