Poplar's Salud! Cooking School, $60 for 5 week series

Partnering with Valerie Monismith, R.N, we are happy to offer the Food For Life, 21 Day Kick-Start Program. 

 

The 21-Day Kickstart is based on research by Neal Barnard, M.D., one of America’s leading health advocates and founder of PCRM.   Food for Life is an award-winning Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) program designed by physicians, nurses, and registered dietitians that offers cancer, diabetes, weight management, employee wellness, and kids classes that focus on the lifesaving effects of healthful eating.  This program is designed for anyone who wants to explore and experience the health benefits of a plant based diet.  Low-fat —plant-based—diets are the easiest way to trim excess weight, prevent diabetes, cut cholesterol, lower blood pressure, prevent and reverse heart disease, and reduce cancer risk. They even trim our carbon footprint.   We will be trying delicious and easy recipes that help you break cravings for unhealthy foods.  Each class includes information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote health, along with cooking demonstrations of simple and nutritious recipes that can be recreated easily at home.  Certified Food For Life Instructor, Valerie Monismith, RN will be guiding you through the 5-week course, providing information, tips, and healthy recipes along the way.  This is a great program to help get you and your family on to the road towards good health and wellness!

 

To register, visit wholefoodsmarket/salud. It is $60 for the 5 week series.
