Food For Life Classes
Eating healthfully can be less expensive than diets fueled by seemingly inexpensive processed products, fast-food products, or nutrient-poor products. The savings can happen in the short term and certainly in the long term, measured not only by dollars but also in quality of life.
This class will provide a short video about plant-based eating from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a presentation on plant-based tips for success, and a plant-based cooking demo with samples.
Time: May 06, 2023 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Investment: 2-Hour Class | $30
Location: Craft Memorial Library | Bluefield, WV

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Last February, I was invited by a friend to go to a “Kickstart Your Health” class. I was struggling with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I devoured the information that Brenda shared each week and enjoyed the foods she cooked for us. It is now ten months later, and I am still enjoying this healthy living! I no longer struggle with either high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Both are in the normal ranges. I lost approximately 17-18 pounds and have been able to maintain. I am 72 years old and only wish I had done this in my twenties or earlier!

Woman loses 60 pounds, lowers blood pressure by switching to plant-based diet
Brenda Workman spent most of her life trying to control her weight — losing some pounds with discipline, but then gaining them all back the moment she could no longer resist eating foods high in fat and sugar.
She even worked for a weight-loss organization, leading classes for 27 years before quitting because she “felt like a hypocrite.” Workman says she herself couldn’t stay on the program for more than eight weeks at a time and ended up yo-yo dieting.
Why blog and speak?
I’ve learned some lessons over the years that might help you as you go through some of the same things I’ve gone through....raising children, homeschooling, surviving the empty nest, grieving the loss of a parent, becoming a healthier version of me, discovering what I was created to do and learning to live intentionally. I’m also still learning on this journey we call life. I want to encourage you. I want you to discover what brings joy. I want you to live intentionally, one day at a time. I'm here to help.
