Let's Crush Chronic Disease!

Diabetes is a major public health problem of epidemic proportions, but we can eat to beat it! And that is exactly what the focus of this week's class will be!

 

Making it Work For You:

Sticking with a new way of eating can take some planning. In this class, we’ll consider occasions that have the potential to present challenges, whether it is eating at work, during the holidays, or while traveling. Foods that you make ahead of time that travel well, and/or that are good dishes for a potluck will be featured by your instructor. Participate in a “graduation” by bringing a dish for your fellow attendees to sample.

 

In this 90 minute class attendees will learn the benefits of a whole food plant based lifestyle and its surprising effect on our health and longevity. Each class includes * NEW RECIPES* live cooking demonstrations with Stefanie's in depth knowledge on plant-based nutrition, educating, and inspiring how to prevent and reverse chronic diseases along with useful handouts, recipes, and Q & A, all in a supportive online group setting.

 

Based on the Power Of Food For Diabetes Prevention and Treatment Program from The Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine

 

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.
