If you’re interested in plant-based nutrition, but are wondering if you’ll get be able to get enough nutrients, or you’re just curious about how to incorporate more plant-based foods into your meals, then these sessions are for you.
Plant-based nutrition isn’t a hard concept, but there are many concerns from a wide range of topics, about if obtaining proper amounts of nutrients is possible without animal foods in the diet. Our country has prioritized processed foods and a large amount of animal-based foods as being a part of the Standard North American diet, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
We have the ability to eat a whole foods, unprocessed diet without eating animals and obtain all the nutrients we need in the process. Wondering about where you’ll get your protein, calcium, iron, and B vitamins? No need!
Learn about how to base your diet off of whole foods, and how to be sure to eat a variety of vegetables, leafy greens, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes. Jim & Janet will talk about how these foods all contain a variety of nutrients that will sustain someone who’s not eating animal-based foods and in the meantime, add more fiber, phytonutrients, and antioxidants into your diet.
A whole foods vegan diet can give your body everything it needs, though many of you will still have some questions, and this is an opportunity to learn more. Here you can get help with some of the most common areas of concern, along with answers and information to explore, including a list of the most important nutrients you need and where to find them in a plant-based diet.
