Tackle COVID-19 by Strengthening Your Immune System
Thursday, July 9, 2020 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Combat COVID-19 with good plant-based nutrition to build immune strength against susceptibility to infectious diseases.

There is evidence that good nutrition influences immune strength and susceptibility to infectious diseases. The fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals in a low-fat, plant-based diet give the immune system a boost.

• More effective white blood cells

• Limiting dietary fat helps strengthen immune defenses.

• Maintaining a healthy weight reduces risk for influenza and other infections such as pneumonia. Plant-based diets are effective for weight loss, because they are rich in fiber, which helps fill you up without adding extra calories.

This healthy cooking class offers research-based nutrition and health information, whole-food, plant-based cooking demos of three recipes, handouts and recipe, and a supportive community.
