This free class is open to the public

This class will arm participants with the knowledge and practical skills to take action to bolster heart health through simple diet and lifestyle changes. Topics addressed focus on cardiovascular risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, with recipes and nutrition strategies for improving or reversing these conditions. The intended outcome is to guide class participants toward healthier low-fat plant-based diets that reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease. The class features a cooking demonstration of delicious, health-promoting dishes, along with handouts of easy and affordable recipes participants can prepare at home.

Featured Class Topics
• High blood pressure: A plant-based diet, rich in potassium, improves blood pressure.
• High cholesterol: Aim for high-fiber foods, which can help to lower cholesterol.
• Atherosclerosis: Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol reduce plaque build-up in the arteries and improve blood flow.
