Foods for a Healthy Heart
Tuesday, July 14, 2020 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Let's tackle COVID-19 with healthy cooking to protect your heart and reduce blood pressure. 

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and around the world. Eating habits and other lifestyle factors play a key role in determining the risk of heart disease. Pioneering studies by Dean Ornish, MD, Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., MD, and others have shown a low-fat, plant-based diet, combined with regular exercise and a healthful overall lifestyle, can prevent, delay, and even reverse heart disease and other cardiovascular events. Plant-based diets benefit heart health because they contain no dietary cholesterol, very little saturated fat, and abundant fiber.

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