About the event
Monday, April 11, 2022 6pm Central to 7:15pmPower of Your Plate
The first class in this series will focus on getting ready to start a low-fat, plant-based diet. Students consider what this diet entails, what groceries to purchase, and what a healthful menu will look like. When the students leave this class, they should consider the next seven days as a week for preparation, and then after Class 2, they will jump into the diet.
Monday, April 18, 2022 6pm Central to 7:15pm DOUBLE class: Let's Go AND Getting in Gear
After a week of preparation and today’s lesson, students will have all the tools they need to start a low-fat, plant-based diet for the next three weeks (21-Day Kickstart). It will be good to go around the room and see how everyone did in their preparatory week of food shopping and meal planning. Encourage students to share their successes and challenges.
Monday, April 25, 2022 6pm Central to 7:15pmDOUBLE class: Breaking the Food Seduction AND Keys For Natural Appetite Control
Students are a couple of weeks into the program. This lesson will go over why these foods, and not broccoli, seem addictive and what we can do to break those addictions. By class end, students will be prepared for their fourth and final week of the Kickstart program.
Monday, May 2, 2022 6pm Central to 7:15pm DOUBLE class: Digestive Health AND Healthy Blood Pressure
Even though the 21-day challenge is over, the lifelong journey of leading a healthful lifestyle continues. The World Health Organization says hypertension (high blood pressure) is “the most important preventable cause of premature death in developed countries.” The good news is that blood pressure changes happen quickly, and plant-based diets will help lower high blood pressure within a short time frame.
