COOKING PLANT BASED FOR HEALTH – “POWERFOODS” (12/5/19)
May 12 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
COOKING PLANT BASED FOR HEALTH - "POWERFOODS" (12/5/19) @ Quercus Kitchen

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 will entice you with the delicious flavours and textures plant based cooking offers. 

Workshop No.2: “POWERFOODS” for heart health and healthy eating at any age.

Sunday 12 May 2019 from 12pm to 2pm

Enjoy eating what you’ve created!
