Introduction: Favoring Fiber
Fiber helps your body rid itself of toxins, waste hormones, excess cholesterol, chemicals, and other undesirables. Without fiber in the diet, these excess compounds can get reabsorbed into the bloodstream, leading to a possible increased risk of cancer growth. Additionally, fiber is especially important in helping the immune system function properly, as well as facilitating the removal of waste from the body. Building your diet from fiber-rich plant foods is important for cancer prevention and survival as well as overall health. In this class, enjoy a fiber-rich meal as you work toward your goal of 40 grams of fiber per day.
In this 90 minute virtual 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.
