2018 Spring

Using video, lecture and discussion, we will investigate why a whole foods/plant based diet is healthful for the individual and sustainable for the planet. We will follow a 21-day “test-drive” eliminating animal products and most processed foods at home. Recipes and menus will be suggested. There will be a couple of cooking demos and a grocery shopping field trip. If you have any health issues or take any medications, it is imperative that you consult your healthcare provider prior to making dietary changes.
