Course Description

A plant-based diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases. According to the American Dietetic Association, "appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases." This course, developed by physicians and dietitians for preparing evidence-based healthy food, helps participants move toward a healthful diet while maintaining a healthy weight. Additional benefits are lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, and lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood. Each class includes a short video nutrition lecture, discussion, demonstration of several recipes, and food sampling.
