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!
Using the Glycemic Index: We have all heard that white bread is bad, and whole wheat bread is better, but do you know why? You may have also heard that people with diabetes should avoid pasta and fruit. That nutrition myth and others will be explored. By learning a few simple rules, you’ll be an expert in choosing those foods that will hold your blood sugar levels steady and give you the nutrition you need for good health. Learn to prepare some dishes that are energizing and that will never leave you with a blood-sugar spike and crash after your meal.
THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE COOKING CLASS!
RECIPES WILL BE DROPPED IN CLASS ALONG WITH HOW TO BATCH COOK, MEAL PREP AND LEARN, TIME SAVING TIPS AND MORE!
In this 90 minute 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 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.
