COOKING PLANT BASED FOR HEALTH – “DINNERS DONE EASILY” (9/6/19)
Jun 9 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
COOKING PLANT BASED FOR HEALTH - "DINNERS DONE EASILY" (9/6/19) @ Quercus Kitchen

There is compelling evidence that dietary patterns that include processed foods and animal products, even in moderation, are the leading cause of modern diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. The evidence that plant based diets are health supporting is consistent across all types of research, particularly in regard to whole plant foods. 

Changing our eating patterns to include just one plant based meal a day can make measurable improvements to our health and wellbeing.  Those eating healthy vegan or vegetarian diets fare better than those eating even a healthy omnivorous diet.

This series of Workshops show how to make the change to a more plant-based diet with simple and delicious recipes, shopping tips and support, to improve your diet for health and longevity.

Anni Turnbull is a passionate advocate for the health benefits of plants, having completed a Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition through E-Cornell University.

Over the next 4 Workshops (second Saturday of each month), Anni Turnbull will entice you with the delicious flavours and textures plant based cooking offers. 

Workshop No.3: “DINNERS DONE EASILY” – How to lose weight and thrive.  Starches and Proteins; Energy density for Weightloss; thriving with Diabetes

Sunday 9 June 2019 from 12pm to 2pm

Enjoy eating what you’ve created!
