Plant-Based Eating Basics
Saturday, May 6, 2023 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Diet-related chronic diseases are major threats to Americans. Overweight and obesity now affect the majority of the U.S. population, increasing the risk of diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease and taking a disproportionate toll on under-served populations. However, improved lifestyle choices, especially dietary, need not be reserved for those in a particular income, social, gender, or racial demographic. Eating healthfully can be less expensive than diets fueled by seemingly inexpensive processed products, fast-food products, or nutrient-poor products. The savings can happen in the short term and certainly in the long term, measured not only by dollars but also in quality of life.


This class will include a short video from the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, Brenda's health transformation story, tips on switching to a plant-based diet and a cooking demo & sampling. Recipes and resources will be distributed to participants.
