A healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts & seeds, complex carbohydrates, and some fortified foods or a multi-vitamin are all a vegan needs to satisfy their nutritional requirements.
This intro class offers the basics of vegan nutrition and easy recipes for meeting your nutritional needs on a vegan diet.
Conducted by an expert in vegan nutrition, Christine Collins, RN, CHWC.
Learn about the many nutritional advantages of living a vegan lifestyle including how to avoid some of the current chronic lifestyle diseases affecting our society today, as well as the wonderful health advantages of obtaining important nutrients including protein, calcium and iron from plant/based sources.
Christine will prepare a broccoli & cashew cheese-quinoa burrito, a kale salad with sweet apple-cinnamon vinaigrette & pecan parmesan and fresh fruit, nuts with whipped coconut cream.
Guests will be able to sample the food and ask questions during the cooking demonstration/presentation.
