Early in the pandemic, doctors found that people were better able to deal with Covid infection if they were initially healthy with no underlying chronic medical conditions. This four-class Zoom series delivers important nutrition information for optimal health to support you during the pandemic and beyond. I will take you through nutritional education and cooking demonstrations so that you can confidently start a healthy plant-based life. In Class 1, we will cover the basics of how a diet rich in plants helps to support a healthy immune system. In Classes 2&3, we will talk about the role of a plant-based diet in the prevention and management of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. And finally, in Class 4, we will discuss how eating a plant-based diet, as well as other lifestyle habits, can support emotional health. Each one-and-a-half hour Zoom session will start with an introduction and a short video, followed by a cooking demonstration showing you how to cook simple healthy vegan dishes. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion.

Cooking to Combat Covid-19 is part of the Food For Life programme which has been created by the Physicians Committee, a not-for-profit based in America, which is supported by over 12,000 doctors who realise that one of the most powerful ways to promote health is through a plant-based diet.


A vegan diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruits can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and other chronic diseases. Cooking to Combat Covid-19 is about embracing an overall healthful diet. It's about choosing the right foods for staying healthy and managing weight as well as improving energy and mood.
