Join the Y and The Rooted Dish for 4 weeks of plant-based basics. Plant-based foods can help you improve your health and manage your weight, and help with chronic diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes.
This 4-week series will:
• teach you why eating more fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans is great for your body;
• give you simple, nutritious recipes that use common ingredients;
• include cooking demonstrations of at least 3 recipes per class;
• provide you with an opportunity to attend a Q&A with a live instructor who has been vegan for almost 10 years;
• give you the support from other people in class looking to make healthy changes; and
• include recipe, meal planning, and nutrition handouts.
