We know that people with underlying conditions are more vulnerable to COVID-19, but by making lifestyle changes, you can better protect yourself. A new online class from the Physician Committee’s Food for Life program is designed to help you use a plant-based diet to increase your overall health in addition to boosting your immune system to help fight disease. From the comfort of your home, you will learn about topics including immune-boosting foods, diabetes prevention and reversal, heart health and maintaining a healthy weight, as well as tips on planning budget-friendly menus with pantry staples. Designed to give you the nutritional information you need for optimal health during this pandemic, this cooking class can help you take a vital step in preparing your body to combat viruses and flu.
