One of the world's most renowned hospitality schools that teaches management of hotels and restaurants is offering a course on the plant-based diet and veganism. The University of Nevada at Las Vegas' William F. Harrah College of Hospitality [https://www.unlv.edu/hospitality] is offering a class on Plant Power. Mark Sandoval, Executive Head Chef at UNLV's Harrah's College of Hospitality has invited four local plant-based and vegan educators to teach the course: Jodi Paige, of VirginCheese.com, Sari Dennis of MyWellnessCounts, Heidi Roy of AlternativeJunkiie, and Daryl Elliott of HowToStartVegan.com, will be the presenters. This course will be the starting place for Harrah's College of Hospitality to include a plant-based diet into their regular curriculum. This program will offer classroom PowerPoint presentations as well as food demos. Mark Sandoval, Executive Head Chef at Harrah's School of Hospitality stated: "The interest stems from my desire to make our program as sustainable as possible- recycling everything we possibly can here on campus, utilizing products that are compostable, and purchasing ingredients as locally as we can. That being said, a plant based diet has very few effects on the environment vs. the effects of raising animals for consumption on our environment. Looking at the benefits of a plant-based diet in terms of health and wellness makes perfect sense. Educating our students to take care of our planet and to take better care of their health is something that can last them a lifetime." The two classes, which will be taught on April 15th and 22nd, will cover a range of topics on the plant-based diet and veganism. Heidi Roy, Alternative Junkie, Vegan lifestyle influencer, commented: "The best thing about thriving plant based is knowing my lifestyle is a “win-win”; no living species has to lose their lives in order for me to be sustained nutritionally." Plant Power 101 and 102 Topics: Benefits of Plant-Based Nutrition Understanding the Food Industry Unmasking Myths about Veganism The Ethics of Veganism The Milk Myth The Importance of Organic and Non-GMO foods How to Properly Stock Kitchens for Success Ditchin' Dairy, and The Cheese Addiction Environmental Impact of Animal Agriculture Jodi Paige, of VirginCheese, commented: “Plant Power 101/102 ~ the Dish on Why Plant-Based Eating is on the Rise will share stories, journeys, experiences and the facts of transitioning into full physical and spiritual health through plant power. Whether you are vegan or vegetarian curious, a newbie or interested in crossing over or battling a chronic ailment, there is something for everyone in this premiere series." Food demos will also be offered: Tasty Sauces Easy Meals One Pot Meals Make your own plant-based cheese, yogurt, kefir Smoothies Sari Dennis, Board Certified Health and Wellness Counselor, Author, Founder of My Wellness Counts, stated: “We make decisions daily by choosing food that is either healthy for us or harmful to us. Every time we grocery shop, prepare our food and put our fork to our mouth, we are choosing our health. Choosing nutrition with compassion is a choice we can all share for our health, for the animals, for the planet.” Daryl Elliott, a 40-year vegan activist of VeganVids.com, HowToStartVegan.com, NonviolentActivism.com, and VegasVeganRestaurants.com, who founded a Las Vegas vegan meetup group with over 4,000 members, said: "It's great to see universities adding courses on the plant-based diet, and including the ethical and environmental aspects of veganism." The group hopes to be able to offer this class at other universities. You may contact the group through Jodi Paige at VirginCheese.com.
