Food For Life

Two Classes - One Day

Craft Memorial Library
January 28, 2023

Class 1.

Plant-Based Basics 

Diet-related chronic diseases are major threats to Americans. Overweight and obesity now affect the majority of the U.S. population, increasing the risk of diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease and taking a disproportionate toll on under-served populations. 

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.

What You'll Learn

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: January 28th | 10AM - 12PM
Investment
2-Hour Class | $30
Location: Craft Memorial Library | Bluefield

Class 2.

Introduction to How Foods Fight Diabetes

The road to diabetes does not have to be a one-way street. There is reason for hope! People who eat plant-based meals are less likely to ever develop diabetes, and for those who have diabetes, plant-based meals can help to improve blood sugar levels and prevent complications. These meals are affordable and can be quite delicious and satisfying. 

A low-fat, plant-based approach offers a new tool that many have found to be very useful. Review the latest science behind this approach, consider some simple ideas for getting started, sample four dishes, and explore useful resources.
