This series of four classes will illuminate how a diet rich in low-fat plant-based foods counters chronic conditions and supports a healthy immune system. It will provide knowledge and practical skills to take action to bolster heart health through simple diet and lifestyle changes, guiding class participants toward healthier low-fat plant-based diets that reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease. We will shine a light on the foods and nutrients to prioritize for optimal brain health, guiding participants through the research supporting a low-fat plant-based diet for maintaining brain function and minimizing risk for cognitive decline. Participants will also leave with knowledge and skills to boost immunity and promote a healthy mood. Each class features a cooking demonstration, along with handouts of easy and affordable recipes participants can prepare at home.
