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!
Designing a Diet for Maximum Weight Control: This is not a “diet” that asks you to walk around hungry or feel deprived. How can you lose weight, if needed, without skipping meals or limiting your portions? In a word, it’s all about FIBER. Plant-foods have it, animal foods do not. Fiber is what makes us feel full, and, as a bonus, it also helps to control blood sugar levels, protects against certain cancers, and, of no small importance, it keeps us “regular.” Learn to comfortably fill up on whole foods and watch the pounds melt away. Enjoy some delicious high-fiber dishes—without any cardboard taste.
In this 90 minute virtual 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.
