Make your pantry a better path to health than your medicine cabinet. Plant-based eating is a proven antidote to many of the chronic illnesses of our time. Medical research, for example, has validated nutritionist claims that the condition of pre-diabetes (affecting one in three adult Americans) can be reversed with a plant-based diet. Eating a whole foods diet has been shown to strengthen our immunological resistance and to prevent many other illnesses including heart disease, and even some forms of cancer. This lifestyle aligns us with creating more peace in the world--by making a choice to reduce the suffering caused by unaware food choices, reducing animal cruelty and supporting the health of the planet. Get inspired prior to class by watching The Game Changers documentary, available on several platforms.
