If you’re interested in plant-based nutrition with questions about getting enough nutrients, incorporating more plants into your meals, or just curious to know more about this lifestyle, then these sessions are for you.

Different topics are planned each week along with a review of the basics, including...

- protein (animal/plant based, beans/greens, amounts, etc.)
- dairy (milk, cheese, eggs, alternatives, industry, etc.)
- carbs (simple, complex, starchy vegetables, GMO, etc.)
- gluten (whole grains, processed, alternatives, etc.)
- fat (saturates, healthy oils, omega 3/6/9, etc.)
- Canada's Food Guide (changes, nutrition labels, etc.)
- resources (videos, websites, tools, books, etc.)
- recipes (substitutions, prepping, batch cooking, etc.)
- nutritional density (red light foods, serving sizes, etc.)
- and more...

With a mixture of story sharing, presenting, and short video clips, the workshop is scheduled to run for 90 minutes with time afterwards for some Q&A.

Hope to see you there. Here's to your health!

PLANT BASED NUTRITION isn’t a hard concept, but there are many concerns on a wide range of topics. Processed foods and animal-based foods may be a huge part of the Standard North American diet, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

We are able to eat a whole foods, unprocessed diet without eating animals AND get all the nutrients we need in the process. Wondering where you’ll get your protein, calcium, iron, and B vitamins? No need! You'll learn all about how to base your diet off whole foods, and how to eat a variety of vegetables, leafy greens, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes.

Jim & Janet will share about how these foods contain a variety of nutrients, enough to sustain anyone not eating animal-based foods and how it adds more fiber, phytonutrients, and antioxidants into your diet, giving your body everything it needs.
