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 weeks class will be!

 

Power Plate and Grocery Store Tour 

 

Let’s get practical. This class provides the knowledge and resources for trying out a new way of eating. By using the tools provided, participants often experience better blood sugar levels, weight loss if needed, and other health benefits within a surprisingly short time. The Power Plate is a diagram that illustrates the essential food groups: vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruits. From these groups, you will be assisted to create your own Weekly Meal Planner and learn how to navigate the grocery store to find the treasures (and avoid the troublemakers!) We’ll discuss common concerns, including how to prevent and treat low blood sugar for those taking certain medications, and how to ease your transition into a filling, high-fiber way of eating!

 

Each class includes *  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.
