Replacing Meat
Wednesday, June 2, 2021 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Introduction: Replacing Meat

When cancer researchers started to look for links between diet and cancer, one of the most noticeable findings was that people who avoided meat were much less likely to develop the disease. This is in part due to the high-fat, high-iron, and fiber-free characteristics of meat compared to plant foods, as well as the formation of carcinogens caused by cooking meat. These cancer-causing chemicals, called heterocyclic amines, tend to form within the meat tissue when exposed to high temperatures. In this class, you will explore a variety of vegetarian sources of protein, all of which are low in fat, high in fiber, and loaded with cancer-fighting nutrients

 

In this 90 minute class attendees will learn about the right food choices that can help reduce the risk of developing cancer as well as preventing recurrence. We will enjoy educational cooking demonstrations of 3 delicious healthful dishes, reviewing useful handouts and recipes, all in a supportive online group setting.

 

Based on the Cancer Project The Power of Foods for Cancer Prevention and Survival by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC,

Dietary choices have a surprisingly effect on our health. Learn that health-promoting foods, recipes, and meals can be easy, convenient and tastes great! Each class includes live food demos and hands-on cooking with Stefanie's in-depth food prep knowledge, Q&A, recipes, educational materials all in a supportive group.

 

Recipes are designed to work for people on a budget who may also have minimal time or access to equipment. More importantly, every class and each ingredient supports a low-fat, plant-based diet plan that has been proven to prevent, manage, and in some cases reverse chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune disease, obesity, and even some forms of cancer.

 

This event is hosted by Plantspiration® and taught by Stefanie Ignoffo, a Licensed Food For Life instructor with the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine.
